Romelu Lukaku is a household name following his spells with super-clubs such Chelsea, Manchester United and Inter Milan, but his younger brother Jordan has enjoyed an impressive career of his own with teams such as Lazio and Anderlecht.

Kylian Mbappe and adopted brother Jires Kembo-Ekoko, who played for the likes of Rennes and Bursaspor, follow in second place with a combined amount of €183 million (R2.9 billion), although the bulk of that figure is made up of Mbappe's mega-money move to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017. 

Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard has two footballing brothers, Thorgan and Kylian, but it is with the former sibling that he climbs to third place in the list. Together, the current Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund stars boast a combined transfer history of €170 million (R2.7 billion).
