In 2016 it looked like the footballer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top.

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 $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 Pogba Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Lagny-sur-Marne Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderpogba - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Paul) and a fashion line called “Paul Pogba Seduction”.
