American athletes compose more than half of the world's 100 highest-paid athletes in 2017, but none of them - not even National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James - could catch up to worldwide soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, according to Forbes calculations released Wednesday.

They report that Real Madrid are expecting a 180m euro offer for Cristiano Ronaldo.

The man reported to be enticing Mayweather back into the ring however, Conor McGregor, is up 61 places to 24th.

Other soccer playes in the top 25 are No. 18 Neymar ($37 million) and No. 24 Gareth Bale ($34 million).

LeBron brought in right around the same amount of money in endorsements this year-$55 million vs. $54 million, per Forbes-but his salary/winnings figure climbed by about $8 million from last year's count. The Cleveland Cavaliers star earned an estimated $20 million more than Ronaldo off the court, with $55 million in income from endorsement deals and appearances. Only four people-LeBron, Lionel Messi, Roger Federer, and Kevin Durant-were able to match or exceed Ronaldo's salary with their combination of salary and endorsements. The top five remained the same from previous year with only James and Messi swapping places.

The golfers' income includes course design work.

The 32-year-old topped the influential business magazine's list for the first time 12 months ago.

There are 21 countries represented on the list, with Americans (63) the most prevalent thanks to sky-high salaries in basketball, American football and baseball.
