There have been several debate on who the richest players in football is. Many have always assumed that the two biggest names currently play will be the richest in the sport, but to their surprise, they are not the richest.
There are footballers that might not have made as much name for themselves but have been able to amass wealth in several ways. This beg the question, how well do we know our players? Apart from their weekly wages and endorsement deals that are publicized, do we really know all their source of income?
In reality, many of these footballers also don’t want all their source of wealth to be disclose to the public, so they rather keep a low profile. This is why its difficult to determine who the richest footballer is in the world sometimes.
