In 2019 it looked like the footballer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday, (July 2, 2022) that Zidane is the highest-paid footballer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between August 2021 and August 2022, a nearly $60 million lead over his closest competition.

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 $275 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 Zidane Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Olympia Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure WonderZidane - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Zinedine) and a fashion line called “Zinedine Zidane Seduction”.
