Barcelona star Lionel Messi has topped the list of the world's highest paid footballers ahead of David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.
According to France Football, which is set to release figures for the best paid players in the world on Tuesday, Barcelona forward Messi raked in 33 million euros last year from wages and sponsorship deals.
Messi has more than lived up to his price-tag this season, scoring 51 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions for Barcelona.
LA Galaxy midfielder and former England captain Beckham, for so long the game's top earner, came in second with 31.5m euros, while Real Madrid star Ronaldo collected 29.2m in 2011.
Cameroonian Samuel Eto'o, who made a lucrative move from Inter to Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala last season, is fourth on the list, with Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney fifth.
Wealthy Premier League outfit Manchester City have two players in the top 10, with Argentine forward Sergio Aguero and Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Toure sixth and seventh, respectively.
The only other club represented twice are Madrid, with Ronaldo's team-mate Kaka ranking ninth.
Chelsea forward Fernando Torres made the top 10 despite failing to impress since his move from Liverpool, netting 16.7m euros during his disastrous first 12 months at Stamford Bridge.
Bayern Munich skipper Philipp Lahm rounds out the top 10, which does not include a player from Italy's top league, the Serie A.

  1. Lionel Messi, Barcelona (33m), 
  2. David Beckham, LA Galaxy (31.5m), 
  3. Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid (29.2m),
