David Beckham tops the chart in the most up to date list for the highest-earning players. I think this list is for the 2007 calendar year.

1. Beckham (£24.4 million)
2. Ronaldinho (16.3)
3. Henry (12.5)
4. Ronaldo (10.6)
5. Cristiano Ronaldo (9.2)
6. Kaka (8.8)
7. Cannavaro (8.7)
8. Shevchenko (8.7)
9. Gerrard (8.5)
10. Terry (8.5)
11. Rooney (8.1)
12. Totti (8.1)
13. Ballack (8.0)
14. Lampard (7.4)
15. del Piero (7.1)
16. Drogba (6.7)
17. Ferdinand (6.3)
18. Messi (5.9)
19. Raul (5.5)
20. Kahn (5.1)

The top four players on the list obviously receive their earnings heavily from sponsorship. The rest of the players derive most of their earnings from their club salaries, as it seems; hence the Chelsea names up there. Surprisingly, Cristiano Ronaldo hasn't overtaken Ronaldo (Brazil) in terms of earnings yet, despite having a higher salary.
