1. David Beckham (PSG) - $48,349,000
‘Goldenballs’ remains the master when it comes to pocketing the big bucks.
Despite earning a relatively nominal fee as part of his five-month deal to join PSG in January, the veteran continues to make huge financial gains off the pitch with his incredible array of sponsors.
A ‘lifetime’ contract with Adidas, plus deals with H&M, Samsung and Burger King, all go towards making the former LA Galaxy star the financial king outside of America.
