The Michoacan Rafael Marquez is currently not at its best, with about 35 years, the time has come in which other players simply would throw in the towel. If you have wanted to know a few years ago How much does Rafael Marquez ?, surely the answer would have been a much higher salary when I joined for the FC Barcelona.
Salary Rafael Márquez
He is currently playing in the Italian side Hellas Verona, having played in the Mexican side León, and despite his age leads undoubtedly to a lower performance in the field, is ranked among the 15 players in Mexico 2014 highest paid along with Oribe Peralta.
Its estimated salary is around 1.5 million dollars per year before taxes, that is, about 18 million Mexican pesos, perhaps the most logical reason that can explain why his high salary, is that still enjoys a wide acceptance among the public and the Mexican fans, reaching to become a legend, that after about participating in world football, returns to Europe. Its current value in the international market is 1.9 million coming to be valued at $ 20.7 million in 2006.
However, times have changed, for example when playing with Red Bull New York his salary was about $ 4.5 million annually, but due to poor performance recently was sold to Lion team.
