You’d be wrong, however, because it’s actually some 19-year-old kid who plays in Leicester City’s reserves, according to an article in ladbible.com.
The world’s richest footballer is none other than Faiq Bolkiah, who’s worth an estimated $20 billion (£14 billion).
Footballers are known for making an absolute shedload of money but interestingly enough, that’s not actually the reason why faiq has all the money he has.
As well as being a sportsman, Faiq is also the nephew of Hassanal Bolkiah, the Sultan of Brunei.
Born in LA, the talented winger has been playing over in England for a while now – having started out at AFC Newbury when he was younger.
In 2009 Southampton then added Faiq to its academy, and in 2013, despite not having a contract, Arsenel offered him a trial. He competed with them in the 2013 Lion City Cup – even landing a goal in the competition.
Chelsea then offered him a two-year deal, though after just one year Faiq left to join Leicester on a three-year contract.
