Beckham the world's best-paid footballer

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder David Beckham has topped Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the world's best-paid footballer.

France Football magazine has calculated Beckham, 37, will make €36 million this year, one million ahead of Messi, 25, in second and a further five million clear of Ronaldo, 28, in third.

Although the Barcelona and Real Madrid stars' salaries of €12.5 million and €13 million respectively dwarf that of Beckham's, estimated at €1.7 million, it is the Englishman's status as a global marketing icon which earns him some €33 million from advertising and endorsements, that has put him top of the ranking for the sixth time in the last 15 years.

While Ronaldo's Real Madrid team-mate Karim Benzema, 25, is the highest-ranked French player at 20th with €12 million annually, PSG trio Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 31 (€15 million and eighth globally), Thiago Silva, 28 (€9.6 million), and Ezequiel Lavezzi, 27 (€9.4 million), unsurprisingly occupy the top three places in Ligue 1.

PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti, 53, ranks second among coaches with €12 million annually, €2 million behind Madrid's Jose Mourinho, 50.
