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.
He was ranked ahead of David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo as the world's richest footballer in 2012.
