Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe are currently the highest paid athletes according to Forbes magazine. The Portuguese, with an income of $ 136 million, overtakes the Argentines – $ 130 million, and the French – $ 120 million. The fourth place is occupied by basketball player LeBron James – 119.5 million.
CR7 has returned to the first place it occupied in 2016 and 2017. This return to the top is a direct result of his departure from Manchester United to Al-Nasr Riyadh of Saudi Arabia. Their contracts will earn him $46 million this season. In addition, there is a profit of 90 million from other sources in the past 12 months.

The Portuguese international is under contract with Al-Nassr until 2025. Ronaldo will receive an annual salary of $75 million. The 38-year-old has become the unofficial ambassador of sports in Saudi Arabia, which provides him with additional income.
Messi plays for Paris Saint-Germain, which is owned by Qatari owners. The Argentine is also an advertising ambassador for Saudi Arabia, which has led to his conflict with club authorities. The footballer has been suspended for two weeks due to his trip to Riyadh.
The podium was completed by Mbappe, who rose stunningly from 35th place to 3rd place in the Forbes ranking, with revenues of $120 million. The Frenchman extended his contract with Paris Saint-Germain last year, earning him $100 million.
Right behind the podium is Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James. He earns $119.5 million, of which $75 million comes from non-sports sources.
