The Best Current Soccer Players

List Criteria: Soccer / football / futbol players currently playing

The best current soccer players are those top football players in the game right now. These talented soccer stars are leading their respective teams to championships, winning numerous awards and are the favorite of fans around the world. If you were building the ultimate soccer dream team and had your selection of the elite players of today, these guys should be your top picks.

Unsurprisingly, these top current soccer players are also many of the top-paid soccer players in the world today. The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Sergio Aguero and Lionel Messi sit high atop both lists with each earning tens of millions of dollars annually in combined income between their soccer salaries and their numerous product endorsements. The highest-paid soccer player, however, is not really considered among the very elite in the game anymore. David Beckham is that player with annual earnings in excess of $50 million, over $44 million of which comes from endorsements from companies like Adidas, H&M and Breitling.

Also among these best soccer players are the best soccer players of 2013. These players, like Robin van Persie, Gareth Bale and Andres Iniesta, are playing the best football of their careers. They are peaking in the sport and see little signs of stopping anytime soon.
