The other businesses of the footballers



That football is a business is nothing new and whoever says that it is not, is lying. The clubs are authentic companies in which, as in any other, what matters most is generating money and footballers are the most important assets. Soccer moves billions of euros around the world every year, but not all the protagonists are satisfied with their salary. The large amounts of money that elite footballers receive have to be in motion to generate more profits and some of them have been able to use their resources very well to further increase their fortunes. So today we bring here a compilation of 5 players who have diversified their money in other businesses.

Leo messi

Messi, like most of his millionaire colleagues, has invested big money in real estate. You have a company that manages offices and parking spaces, and in his native Rosario he has built a residential complex with seven neighborhoods, a beach, a golf course and a sports area. Also, he is the owner of some restaurant in the same town and in Barcelona.
