In 2018 it looked like the footballer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (August 14) that Sakho is the highest-paid footballer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between July 2019 and July 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 French 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 Sakho Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Paris Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondersakho - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Mamadou) and a fashion line called “Mamadou Sakho Seduction”.

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