They will both be remembered as two of the greatest - if not *the* two greatest - players of all time.
The Los Blancos superstar, who turned 33 today, receives a reported annual salary of €21 million (R315 million) at Real, which is far less than the likes of Neymar and Messi are getting following their new deals in 2017.
