New Delhi: Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain, who is considered as one the best center forwards in today's game, has been reportedly offered a huge pay package of EUR 50 million per year.
Of the currently active footballers, Cristiano Ronaldo with a reported salary of EUR 21 million and Lionel Messi of EUR 20 million are the best paid players.
David Beckham, during his time at MLS club LA Galaxy, is said to have earned a sum of EUR 30 million per year.
China has been giving football an all new dimension since the past couple of years, with many big names switching to the Asian giants for hefty transfer fee and pay packages.
Higuain, who currently plays for Napoli, with a buyout clause of EUR 94 million, will become the best paid player of all time if he says yes to Hebei China Fortune.
However, reports suggest that the 28-year-old has already rejected the stunning offer and wants to continue career in Europe.
