Top 10 Richest World Cup 2014 Players

11 June 2014

With the 2014 FIFA World Cup about to kick off, Wealth-X today names Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal’s forward and captain, as the wealthiest footballer competing in this year’s tournament in Brazil.

 

With an estimated net worth of US$230 million, Ronaldo’s personal fortune accounts for nearly one-quarter of the combined net worth of the 10 players in the Wealth-X World Cup Rich List, beating other high-profile soccer players such as Lionel Messi from Argentina and England’s Wayne Rooney.

 

England has more ultra wealthy soccer players on the Wealth-X World Cup Rich List than any other country: forward Rooney (US$95 million), and mid-fielders Frank Lampard (US$60 million) and Steven Gerrard (US$55 million).
