Michael Strahan tops annual list of highest-paid footballers

In 2019 it looked like the footballer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (July 28) that Strahan is the highest-paid footballer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between June 2020 and June 2021, a nearly $40 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 American footballer-television host has an estimated net worth of $215 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 Strahan Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Houston Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderstrahan - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Michael) and a fashion line called “Michael Strahan Seduction”.

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