Xavi tops annual list of highest-paid footballers

In 2020 it looked like the footballer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (June 2) that Xavi is the highest-paid footballer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between May 2022 and May 2023, 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 Spanish 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 Xavi Burger” chain) in Madrid, a Football Team (the “Terrassa Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderxavi - Spain), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Xavi) and a fashion line called “Xavi Seduction”.

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