Comments()
Two old adversaries are set to lock horns again at Camp Nou on Sunday, but which members of their respective squads are pulling in the most money?

Clasico rivalries will be rekindled this weekend when newly-crowned La Liga champions Barcelona welcome Real Madrid to Catalunya.

There will be no guard of honour for Ernesto Valverde’s side at Camp Nou, with two old adversaries having exchanged barbs this season when it comes to acknowledging the achievements of the other.

Plenty of superstars will be on show, however, with the eternal battle for global supremacy between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo set to open another chapter.

It comes as no surprise to find that two men with 10 Ballons d’Or between them will be the best-paid performers to take to the field on Sunday, but who joins them on the Clasico rich list?
