Messi winning almost twice as much Ronaldo with Ozil, the Arsenal star, made him look poor

It is believed that ARSENAL were hampered by the astronomical wages of Mesut Ozil – but he appears to be poor by Lionel Messi.

The Barcelona superstar is by far the highest paid player on the planet, taking home £ 7.3 million per MONTH before taxes – almost double the rival Cristiano Ronaldo.

Messi has signed a new contract in November 2017, where he earns about £ 1.7 million a week – according to the latest annual L & # 39; Team salary report.

Meanwhile, the famous frenemy Ronaldo invoices £ 4.1 million per month with Juventus, incredibly only 56% of what Messi wins in Spain.

Arsenal was in a riddle at the transfer window last month, with no money to buy new players.

One reason is thought to be his devastating salary – topped by Ozil.

The Gunners were hoping to sell the former German international, but could not find any potential buyers with their huge package of 350,000 pounds a week as a possible stumbling block.

But his monthly salaries of £ 1.4m are totally overshadowed by Messi – who wins FIVE times more.

Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann is third among the highest paid players in the world, with a monthly salary of £ 2.9 million.

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar arrives fourth with £ 2.7m – with teammate Kylian Mbappe (£ 1.5m) in ninth.

Luis Suarez is fifth, with £ 2.5m ahead of Gareth Bale of La Liga for £ 2.2m.

But Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho is in seventh place with £ 2m a month with Manchester United's Alexis Sanchez.

The former Liverpool star Coutinho was injured by Barcelona supporters a year after their £ 145 million transfer to the Nou Camp.
