Football, or soccer as it is called everywhere, is one of the greatest sports in the world. It’s a game that brings people from different tribes and countries together.

Football has made great players past and present. Unique players with unique play styles team up to play as one under the voice and guidance of a manager who brings in the tactics and various techniques to defeat their opponent.

7: Eden Hazard: 85 million euros

Eden Hazard came in sixth in the ranking. The Belgian international was set to become Real Madrid’s new superstar after CR7 left. In terms of sport, this plan did not work out, but the salary that Hazard collects there comes very close to that of an absolute top star. As a result, among other things, he was able to earn a fortune of  85 million euros.

6: Gareth Bale: 130 million euros

In the meantime, Gareth Bale would have problems ranking the best footballers in the world in 5th place. But thanks to his monster contract with Real Madrid, Gareth Bale was not only able to win the Champions League four times, but also a good chunk of coal that catapulted him to fifth place in this ranking. Bale’s fortune amounts to  130 million euros.

5: Neymar Jr: 160 million euros

His € 222m move from Barcelona to Paris will have boosted his fortune again thanks to an astronomical salary. It is currently estimated at 160 million euros – and since Neymar is a lot younger than many other players in this ranking, one can assume that he will overtake one or the other in the course of his career.

4: Zlatan Ibrahimović: 180 million euros

The Swedish striker has built a brand that goes beyond football. With his extremely self-confident, sometimes arrogant manner, he polarized and became a highly paid advertising figure.

2: Lionel Messi: 600 million euros

The world footballer ends up just ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo in this ranking, but still not in the first place. With an estimated fortune of 510 million euros, the Argentine will probably be able to cope with that.

1: Faiq Bolkiah: 20 Billion US Dollars

The current fortune of the barely 20-year-old is estimated at 20 billion US dollars. Bolkiah is the son of the current Sultan of Brunei – which probably explains this immense sum. He is currently playing in the second team of the Portuguese club CS Maritimo.

As you have probably noticed, only one German player made it onto the list. But Germany’s professional footballers don’t have to worry
