Saudi Arabian league side Al Nassr on Friday completed the signing of former Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo was a free agent for just over a month after his contract with Man United was terminated in November.

Once ad revenue is included, the former Real Madrid, Juventus and Sporting Lisbon striker is now the best-paid athlete on the planet.

CBS Sports reports that the entire volume of Ronaldo’s contract with Al Nassr would earn the Portuguese €216m a year.

This by far cannot be measured with the €75m per season of Paris Saint-Germain stars, Lionel Messi and Neymar’s €70m.

Here is list of top ten highest earners after Ronaldo’s contract:

10 Kevin De Bruyne (Man City) – $29m

9 Andres Iniesta (Vissel Kobe) – $30m

8 Eden Hazard (Real Madrid) – $31m

7 Robert Lewandowski (FC Barcelona) – $35m

6 Erling Haaland (Man City) – $39m

5 Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – $53m

4 Neymar (PSG) – $87m

3 Lionel Messi (PSG) – $110m

2 Kylian Mbappé (PSG) $128m

1 Cristiano Ronaldo (Al-Nassr) $214m
