Juventus' Wage Structure Shows The Massive Difference Between Cristiano Ronaldo And His Teammates
Ronaldo joined Juventus from Real Madrid in 2018 and he's reportedly paid just over €400,000 a week.
He is one of the highest paid players in the world and Gazzetta dello Sport claim the huge difference in salaries has created a 'discord' at the club.
The coronavirus pandemic will likely have a huge impact on player wages and the model has been described as 'unsustainable'.
Check out the earnings of every Juventus player per Marca below.
Carlo Pinsoglio: €0.3 million
Gianluigi Buffon: €1.5 million
Merih Demiral: €1.8 million
Rodrigo Bentancur: €2.5 million
Mattia Di Sciglio: €3 million
Daniele Rugani: €3 million
Blaise Matuidi: €3.5 million
Giorgio Chiellini: €3.5 million
Danilo: €4 million
Federico Bernardeschi: €4 million
Alex Sandro: €5 million
Juan Cuadrado: €5 million
Sami Khedira: €6 million
Douglas Costa: €6 million
Wojciech Szczesny: €6.5 million
Leonardo Bonucci: €6.5 million
Adrien Rabiot: €7 million
Aaron Ramsey: €7 million
Arthur Melo: €7 million (will join from Barcelona in September)
Paulo Dybala: €7.3 million
Miralem Pjanic: €7.5 million (deal agreed to join Barcelona in September)
Gonzalo Higuain: €7.5 million
Matthijs de Ligt: €8 million
Cristiano Ronaldo: €31 million
De Ligt being second in the list will come as a surprise considering his lack of experience.
The 20-year-old joined from Ajax last summer and has established himself as a regular starter after a shaky start to life in Turin.
Miralem Pjanic also finds himself in the top five although his time at the Allianz Stadium is nearly over.
He'll be joining Barcelona next season while Juve will gain Arthur Melo in exchange.
Ronaldo is still the main man for Maurizio Sarri's side and he scored again as they sealed the Serie A title on Monday.
2-0 victory over Sampdoria confirmed 'The Old Lady' as champions for the ninth consecutive time.
Forward Paulo Dybala admitted the club are already thinking of an unprecedented 10th title in a row.
"It can be hard to maintain concentration and ambition, but every victory is special," the Argentine international told The Guardian per Goal.
"I think that's the most important thing. I like to win, my team-mates like to win, and the club likes to win, and it's that desire that makes us winners - but of course, it helps that we have the strongest players in the world in every position.
"We're proud of ourselves, to win nine titles in a row is incredible, and we're already thinking about a 10th.
"First though we need to turn our attention to the Champions League.
"It's been such a long season already. The first game against Lyon was five months ago and so many things have happened in between, but we know what we can still achieve.
"It'll be strange to play in the Champions League without fans, and to play just one tie in each round, but first we have to win in Turin. For now, that's all that matters."
