Fans might be forgiven for believing either Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi is the wealthiest footballer in the world, but that would be incorrect! The player who reportedly holds that tag is just 25 years old and plays in Thailand.
So, why does he have all that money? While Portugal’s captain is said to be worth £500 million (R12 billion), his counterpart is believed to have a net worth of £471.5 million (R11.3 billion). It must be a nice life!
