Lionel Messi crosses the billion dollar revenue mark

Once again, it is difficult to decide between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Except this time, it is not only the sport that counts because the two rivals are also engaged in a small financial battle. And the ranking Forbes is a good indicator when it comes to wealth. A few months after its Portuguese rival, the Pulga also reached the symbolic mark of a billion dollars in revenue over its entire career. This ranking takes into account contracts with clubs but also those of sponsorship and merchandising.

With his 126 million earned this year, 25% of which come from sponsorship, the Argentine star becomes the 5th sportsman in history to cross this billion threshold, after Floyd Mayweather, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods and CR7. In the top 10, we also find Neymar on the podium while his PSG teammate Kylian Mbappé holds 4th place. Other French, Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann respectively occupy the 6th and 7th places.
