Five Highest paid female football players in 2021
Ligalive has prepared a detailed and extensive report of five highest paid female football players in the world in 2021.
Ligalive presented a detailed report earlier today outlining the three best paid men’s football players in the world in 2021.
United States Women National Team (USWNT) star Carli Lloyd is the highest paid female football player in 2021, according to Insider.
The report adds that Lloyd, who plays for Sky Blue FC in the National Women’s Soccer League, earned the status of the highest paid female football player in 2021 by raking on only $518,000 in 2019 in club salary – 272 times fewer than Lionel Messi who is the highest paid football player overall in 2021.
Not far behind the American on the list of highest paid female football players in 2021 is Chelsea and Australia forward Samantha Kerr. The 27-year-old became the 2nd highest paid female football player in 2021 after raking in $500,000 in salary over the last year, excluding endorsements and investments.
In third place of the list of highest paid female football players in 2021, we have the striker whose goal-scoring celebration in the recent FIFA World Cup took the English fans by storm. Alex Morgan has a basic pay of around $450,000 but he earns many times more from her endorsements.
Yet another USWNT star Megan Rapinoe joins the list of the highest paid female football players in 2021. The US winger has a knack of courting controversy but her on-the-field performances are enough to shut down his critics and allow Rapinoe to collect $447,000 in salary per year.
The final name on the list of five highest paid female football players in 2021 is Chicago Red Stars’ forward Julie Ertz. She earns an annual salary of $400,000 – a pittance when compared with the $37m/year income of Mohamed Salah who is the fifth highest male football player on the planet.
