It sounds pretty funny,Alberto is poor sportsman with comparison to big 5 of spanish sport
Contador 6€
Lorenzo 16-18€
Gasol 19$
Nadal 25-35€
Alonso 32-36$


note:numbers form Rafa and Alonso are without sponsors deals

If you include alonso and lorenzo you might as well include martha sanchez and Juan Carlos Ii

Also there's gonna be about 50 spanish footballers who beat contadors wage.

contador is paid outside of the team budget and by private sponsors for almost 50% as well. like specialized

How much does Contador make btw? I'm assuming specialized pays a lot of his paycheck. Excluding everything else, how much does Saxo/Specialized pay him a year?

5 million euro?
6 million before the bann, when he signed with saxo

not really maybe 5-10 spanish players that make more than contador. but even that I doubt. for instance sneijder is best paid player in italy and makes 6 million a year. in spain they pay less, except madrid and barcelona, but only handful will be paid more then that. in england they also pay less than in italy, save city and chelsea.
