According to the BBC, Russian team Anzhi Makhachkala paid Inter Milan €21 million (about $27,800,000) for his contract and they are paying him a yearly salary of €20 million (roughly $26.5 million) after tax per season. This makes him a higher earner than Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. He has found a terrific hobby to spend all that cash, as in addition to owning this Bugatti
Veyron he also owns a Gemballa Mirage GT and Stallone Mansory. The super-spending Russian club, recently bought by billionaire oil tycoon Suleiman Kerimov, has seen a solid return on their investment, as Eto'o has already scored 8 goals in 14 appearances this season.
