Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, reportedly earns $167 million a year with Al Nassr in the Saudi Pro League. Ronaldo is the highest-paid player in Saudi Arabia, so he wouldn't be happy to earn less, or at least more, than Messi. The Portuguese striker is not on bright terms with the Saudi Pro League since he has been having issues with the referees. His red card against Al Hilal this week led to his boiling point, and he was close to hitting the official after being sent off. Now, there are rumors that he could potentially join David Beckham's Inter Miami.

Ronaldo has played 25 Saudi Pro League matches this season for Al Nassr, and he has scored 29 goals and 10 assists. Messi has played four games in the 2024 MLS season so far, scoring four goals and providing one assist.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are still among the highest football players in the world. Despite playing in Saudi Arabia and the United States, respectively, the two have different types of salaries. Lionel Messi is a top earner in the MLS and has many different outlets for income, but in Ronaldo’s case, he may have a bigger salary than the Argentine since the Portuguese signed with Nike.
