Manchester United icon, Cristiano Ronaldo has emerged the richest footballer in 2022.

The 36-year-old Portugal international has tied with England legend David Beckham for the number one position ahead of Paris Saint-Germain superstar Lionel Messi.

Beckham retired from football in 2013 and the 46-year-old Manchester United legend is the current co-owner and president of MLS side Inter Miami and co-owner of Salford City.

The former England international also has enjoyed lucrative sponsorship deals with the likes of Adidas, Giorgio Armani, Pepsi, Gillette and the Haig Club and was paid eye-watering £150m to become the face of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

To determine the top 20 richest footballers past and present, Wealthy Gorilla compiled data from The Richest, Celebrity Net Worth and Forbes using their net worth estimates.
