The highest-paid players in Saudi Arabia have been revealed amid N’Golo Kante and Kalidou Koulibaly’s recent transfers.

Cristiano Ronaldo began the Saudi trend following his move to Al Nassr from Manchester United, penning a lucrative contract.

His former Real Madrid teammate Karim Benzema then followed in his footsteps as he joined Al Ittihad this summer.

Premier League legend Kante, Koulibaly and Ruben Neves have since transferred to the Middle East, signing for Al Ittihad and Al Hilal respectively.

The likes of Hakim Ziyech, Roberto Firmino and Riyad Mahrez have also been strongly linked with a move to Saudi Arabia.

They could be swayed with a move to Saudi Arabia considering the financial packages the likes of Ronaldo, Benzema and Kante have received.

The Portuguese international, naturally, is the highest-paid player in Saudi Arabia as he earns a whopping salary of £173 million, ahead of the French forward who pockets a staggering salary of £172 million.

Kante picks up a salary of £86.2 million while Koulibaly and Neves earn £30 million and £16 million respectively.
