Alexis Sánchez tops annual list of highest-paid footballers

In 2018 it looked like the footballer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (October 28) that Sánchez is the highest-paid footballer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between September 2019 and September 2020, a nearly $20 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The Chilian footballer has an estimated net worth of $145 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Sánchez Burger” chain) in Santiago, a Football Team (the “Tocopilla Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondersánchez - Chile), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Alexis) and a fashion line called “Alexis Sánchez Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Alexis fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
