Edition of the Sun decided to expose some common misconceptions. For example, many are convinced that Carlos Tevez is the highest paid player in the world. But it is not, according to the newspaper.
The British tabloid insists that the highest-paid player in the world is Argentinian, Ezequiel LAVEZZI, who plays for Hebei China Fortune, and scored only two goals this season.
Here is a list of the five highest paid footballers in the world by The Sun (the salary for the week in pounds sterling):
1. Ezequiel LAVEZZI (Hebei Syne Fortune) 798000
2. Carlos Tévez (Shanghai Shenhua) 637615
3. Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) 424615
4. Oscar (Shanghai SIPG) 400000
5. Lionel Messi (Barcelona) 362480
