Using figures from Celebrity Net Worth, Forbes and The Richest, money and entrepreneurship website Wealthy Gorilla recently conducted a study to see which footballers – past and present – rank as the richest players in the world from their football and football-related activities.
Juventus superstar Ronaldo and former England midfielder David Beckham shared top spot in the top 10, which also included Messi, Pele, Francesco Totti, Gareth Bale, Alexandre Pato, Wayne Rooney and Dave Whelan.
Among those just outside of the top 10, former FC Barcelona and Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o ranks among the best of the rest with a reported net worth of $95 million (R1.3 billion), which is matched by AC Milan and Real Madrid legend Kaka.
Didier Drogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ronaldinho trail closely behind, with the three being valued at around $90 million (R1.3 billion) each, although the latter's estate is questionable given recent reports that he was nearing bankruptcy.
Other retired footballers, such as ex-Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand and Bayern Munich legend Arjen Robben, also feature – you can view the full list by scrolling through the gallery above!
