ATLETICO MADRID boss Diego Simeone is by far the highest paid manager in world football, according to reports.
The Argentinean is apparently raking in a whopping £36.2million salary every year at the LaLiga side - almost double what Pep Guardiola earns.
Incredibly, it means the former defender is earning more than DOUBLE the highest paid player at the club.
While Simeone takes home £700,000-a-week, Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak has to settle for around £300,000.
According to a report by L'Equipe, they have detailed the wages of the world's biggest bosses with three Premier League managers occupying the top five.
Guardiola currently trousers £20m-a-year at Man City with his contract at the Etihad expiring in the summer of 2021.
But he could ask for a huge pay rise in order to stay at the club following the stunning news that City face a two-year ban from the Champions League.
It is no wonder Simeone has been in no rush to leave the Wanda Metropolitano following his unlikely success as manager.
He has been linked with some of football's biggest jobs including Manchester United after winning four pieces of major silverware and reaching the Champions League final on two occasions.
But there is no way his salary could be matched with both Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp earning the same wage at Spurs and Liverpool respectively.
Mourinho's appointment in December and Klopp's new contract just before Christmas means the pair are earning £15m each.
Although the Reds boss could be in line for a hefty bonus when they finally seal the Premier League title.
In fifth is Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane who earns £14m at Los Blancos while Everton's Carlo Ancelotti takes home £11.5m.
Other notable names who are topping up their retirement funds include Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers.
After signing a new contract last year, the Northern Irishman earns £10m at the Foxes becoming the fifth best-paid boss in the Premier League, behind Carlo Ancelotti.
