This varies widely, Messi made headlines last year for scoring 90 goals, 50 of which were for his club. Consequently, Barcelona shelled out $400,000 per goal for his services.
Madrid paid Ronaldo $352k for each of his goals. Remember, many of these goals were scored at other stadiums.
In England, RVP earned a paltry $72k for his 30 goals - no wonder he left Arsenal. Here's how much the top goal scorers were paid for their goals in England last year:
|1||Robin Van Persie||Arsenal||30||$71,857|
|2||Wayne Rooney||Manchester United||27||$182,495|
|3||Sergio Agüero||Manchester City||23||$151,755|
|4||Emmanuel Adebayor||Tottenham Hotspur||17||$320,278|
|4||Yakubu Aiyegbeni||Blackburn Rovers||17||$65,940|
|7||Demba Ba||Newcastle United||16||$120,104|
What do you think about this way of representing players' salaries? Is it any surprise that RVP left Arsenal, when you see how much the other top goal-scorers earn?
