Juve have a perfect record after their first three games of the season, but Ronaldo is yet to score a goal for his new team and has attracted criticism for his failure to find the net thus far.

Despite his failure to score, it comes as no surprise that Ronaldo is top of the rankings when it comes to earnings, but the wage gap between the Juventus star and the rest of the league is quite astonishing.

Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport have revealed the wages of all Serie A players, with the 33-year-old taking home far more than any of his team-mates or rivals. Ronaldo is earning an incredible €31 million (£28m/$36m) per season in Turin and is on a four-year deal with the reigning Serie A champions.

Gonzalo Higuain, who joined AC Milan from Juve after Ronaldo arrived in Turin, is the next best paid, raking in €9.5 million (£9m/$11m) per season.
