Ah, money in football.
We can all agree that there's far too much of the stuff in the sport – but, nevertheless, it's always fascinating to find out how much the players we love to watch take home every year.
Fortunately, the excellent World Soccer have compiled a list of the top 20 highest-paid players in world football.
All figures are estimated net basic salaries, and do not include bonuses or incentives, but they give us an insight into the extraordinary sums of money these star names are paid to perform each year.
Remember: these annual wages are AFTER tax.
