Ronaldinho still richer than most high profile playing football players

The retired former Barcelona and AC Milan playmaker still boasts an impressive net worth despite spending a month in a Paraguayan prison back in March last year.

Brazilian World Cup winner Ronaldinho still boasts a higher net worth than Karim Benzema, Paulo Dybala and Kevin De Bruyne despite spending time in jail.

The former Barcelona playmaker spent 32 days in prison in Paraguay last year after being arrested upon entering the country on suspicion of using a fake passport.

Despite this, though, he still has an estimated net worth of $90million (£67.2m) thanks to his career earnings and a number of high paying brand endorsement deals.

This is higher than that of current stars Benzema, Dybala and De Bruyne, who are estimated to be worth $70million (£52m), $40million (£30m) and $60million (£45m) respectively.

Ronaldinho was arrested at an airport in Paraguay back in March 2020 before spending just over a month behind bars in the South American nation.

The 41-year-old was taken into custody along with his brother Roberto and while in prison he took part in an exhibition futsal match.

His impressive net worth is boosted by his career earnings as he played for some of Europe’s biggest clubs as well as via a number of lucrative endorsement deals.
