His family claims 2,300 cars, including an armada of Bentleys, Ferraris, and Rolls-Royces, 8 Boeing jets, 5 boats, 500 chateaus, and castle structures.
Faiq Jefri Bolkiah, since early on, started playing at AFC Newbury, Southampton, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Leicester City. He has recently joined Maritimo in Portugal, following four years at Leicester.
Cristiano Ronaldo is rated by many as the best player on the planet. He currently earns roughly 30 million euros per year from Manchester United, alongside with benefits from business ventures and other type of advertising activities. Cristiano Ronaldo is among the most richest players on the planet.
As a player who has won almost everything he could over the years, it's no surprise to anyone to see Ronaldo earning so much money as he does nowadays. However, most of his income isn't coming directly from his salary, but rather advertising partnerships...
According to Tuttosport, Ronaldo is one of the most wealthy players in the present day and he can earn nearly 1 million euros for a 4-hour publicizing sponsorship contract (250,000 euros each hour). A photograph meeting, five signed shirts, and various online entertainment posts could be more than enough for Ronaldo to become even more rich in a matter of hours.
Lionel Messi is another name in the sport every fan admires and unsurprisingly he is also one of the players who earns the most when it comes to salaries. His earnings come from his paycheck with PSG, advertising contracts, and of course, other businesses ventures.
Messi's became incredibly popular while playing for FC Barcelona in Spain, where he has managed to collect a total of 6 Ballon d'Ors, something no other player has ever done. The Argentine superstar is said to be earning roughly 30 million euros per year in PSG. Lionel Messi is undoubtedly one of the most popular players on the planet and already cemented a legendary status among fans.
Neymar Jr is behind a contract with PSG that is valid until 2025, with a quite impressive salary estimated to be around 40 million euros per year. Just like his teammate Lionel Messi, the Brazilian ace also manages to earn a lot of money from advertising partnerships. Nowadays, Neymar is already entering the last stages of his professional career as a footballer, but his wealth is expected to continue to grow in the years to come...
His yearly income from advertising and endorsements is said to be around 30 million euros.
