Neymar remains the highest-paid footballer in France, despite Paris Saint-Germain's summer signing of Lionel Messi.
French publication L'Equipe have released estimates of monthly salaries across the country's top tier.
Mauricio Pochettino's side dominate the list with the top 14 spots occupied by PSG players, showing the gulf between his side and the rest of the league.
Brazil star Neymar, who joined PSG from Barcelona for £198million back in August 2017, is still the division's top earner, pocketing around £3.4million per month before tax. This equates to a yearly gross salary of just under £41m per year.
His closest rival is now Messi, who joined the club in the summer following his emotional exit from Barcelona.
The 34-year-old world superstar, who was once the highest earner in world footballer, now makes around £34m per year at the French giants.
