Thomas Müller tops annual list of highest-paid footballers

In 2015 it looked like the footballer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (November 24) that Müller is the highest-paid footballer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between October 2016 and October 2017, 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 German 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 Müller Burger” chain) in Berlin, a Football Team (the “Weilheim in Oberbayern Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondermüller - Germany), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Thomas) and a fashion line called “Thomas Müller Seduction”.

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