There you have it, these are some of the top-earning Latino soccer players in the world. Of course, it is worth clarifying that if we had not limited ourselves to talking about one footballer per country, the list would be dominated by Brazilian footballers.

It's also worth mentioning that some players we didn't name on this list have had a salary explosion, with which they could become the highest-paid this year. For example, Luis Díaz went from earning 750 thousand euros a year to 3.8 million euros with Liverpool.
