Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic — $140 Million

He hails from Sweden and is one of the most famous and wealthiest soccer players of all time. By the time he was only six, he was already playing soccer with several different leagues. Throughout his teenage years, however, he spent a great deal of time wondering if he should continue the game. He actually considered quitting and working at the local docks. Thank goodness he didn’t, because while we don’t know what would have happened if he quit soccer, we do know it wouldn’t be making it onto this list as one of the richest soccer players in the history of the game.
