Rabat – Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo has topped Goal.com’s Rich list 2015 for the second consecutive year. The Portuguese international’s personal fortune stands at €210m, €10 million ahead of eternal Rival Lionel Messi who came in second place.
“Ronaldo has increased his wealth substantially, thanks largely to having collected bonuses for helping Real Madrid to the Champions League and Club World Cup crowns. He also received a sum for winning the 2014 Ballon d’Or,” Sports website Goal.com said.
Barcelona striker Neymar is ranked third in the Goal Rich list with a net worth of €135 million, followed by PSG star Zlatan Ibrahimovic in fourth place (€105) and Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney in fifth place (€103).
Goal estimates footballers net worth based on identifiable assets including salary, length of contract, bonuses, endorsement and sponsorship deals, properties and other business interests.
Players who made it to the list include Fifa-registered professional players of all nationalities in any professional league – or registered players currently without a club, but who are actively looking to sign for a professional outfit.
