The world of football stars is one that most people would never know, understand or live in. This makes superstar footballers some of the most privileged people on planet Earth.
This privileged world of football stars means that they get to have certain peculiar allowances. There is no other place where these peculiarities are revealed than in the contracts these football stars sign with clubs and other entities.
Ronaldo, Neymar and Sergio Aguero make up the list of some players with the strangest clauses in their contracts.
Starting with Brazilian superstar Neymar, the Paris Saint-Germain attacker is thought to be one of the choosiest individuals in the game.
Neymar is entitled to close to GHC 14 million if he simply does not question the coach's choices.
About 10 years ago, a teenage Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain burst onto the scene thanks to interest shown in him by Arsenal.
After Arsenal signed him, Southampton included that for every 20 minutes the player played, Arsenal would have to pay Southampton an extra 10,000 Pounds Sterling.
After seven years at Manchester City, former Atletico Madrid player Sergio Aguero is still making money for the Spanish club. For every 15 goals Aguero scores, Atletico Madrid gets paid 250,000 Euros from City.
Ezequiel Lavezzi is by far the highest paid player per day if we are taking only the money from a club into consideration. Lavezzi pockets about GHC 600,000 per day.
And lastly, Cristiano Ronaldo has an agreement with his domestic workers that shuts them up about his personal life for 70 years after his and his relatives' deaths.
