Manchester United FC forward Cristiano Ronaldo has reclaimed the top spot in the list of the world’s highest-paid footballers from Lionel Messi, according to Forbes.

Ronaldo, 36, rejoined Manchester United from Juventus in August after 12 years away, while Messi has swapped boyhood club FC Barcelona for Paris St-Germain (PSG).

Forbes said Ronaldo, among the world’s most popular athletes with over 500 million followers across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, is set to make 125 million dollars before taxes in the 2021/2022 season.
