He was ranked ahead of David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo as the world's richest footballer in 2012.
How rich are we talking? Try €33 million ($43,797,600) in salary and endorsements. Somehow, in 2013 he'll see his income slip slightly to just €30 million ($39,816,000), which will relegate him back to second place behind Beckham. We worry for his financial safety.
