Bonucci, Higuain, Highest Earning Players In Italy

 Bonucci has joined Higuain as Serie A's highest-paid players
AC Milan's Leonardo Bonucci and former Juventus teammate Gonzalo Higuain are the top Serie A earners but their wages fall short of European stars Neymar and Lionel Messi, the Gazzetta dello Sport reported.

Italy defender Bonucci, 30, and Argentina striker Higuain, 29, both pocket an estimated €7.5 million annually, the Italian sports daily said.

Bonucci joined AC Milan from Juventus in July and his salary does not include bonuses which would boost his annual earnings to €10 million.

Brazil striker Neymar became the world's top-paid player with a salary of €30 million in a record deal with Qatar-owned Ligue 1 club PSG this summer.

Barcelona's Lionel Messi is set to earn the same amount once his new deal with the Catalan giants is signed.

Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, once the highest earner, is paid a reported €22 million after tax by European champions Real Madrid.
