One would think this automatically makes Ronaldo the richest footballer but another footballer gets a bigger bag than him.

Faiq Bolkiah, the 24 years old nephew of the Sultan of Brunei is reportedly the richest footballer with a net worth of £13bn, making Ronaldo’s wealth a  drop in the ocean compared to Bolkiah’s.

If that seems like a big deal, it’s because the majority of his wealth has nothing to do with his football career. Despite being from a royal family with enormous wealth, Faiq still chose to go his own way and pursue a career as a professional athlete.

The royal bloodline sportsman has had spells at Premier League clubs Southampton, Chelsea and Leicester under his belt.
