Arjen Robben 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 Thursday (October 29) that Robben is the highest-paid footballer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between September 2019 and September 2020, a nearly $30 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 Dutch footballer has an estimated net worth of $185 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 Robben Burger” chain) in Amsterdam, a Football Team (the “Bedum Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderobben - Netherlands), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Arjen) and a fashion line called “Arjen Robben Seduction”.

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