Neymar, Kaka and R10 on Goal Rich List
Brazil dominate the 2014 Goal Rich List as published over the past weekend, with no fewer than three candidates listed among the world's ten wealthiest players. Some superstars have failed to make the top ten ranking, such as Gareth Bale and Radamel Falcao, but the burning lights of at least a couple of Brazilian players are still going strong.
The list, which only contains current players (hence the absence of the likes of David Backham), takes into account the earning s of today's footballing royalty and there is little surprise perhaps that Cristiano Ronaldo is at its summit.
But delve down a little deeper and you can see Neymar, Kaka and Ronaldinho, the latter two coming as something of a shock considering the presence of the likes of Bale, Falcao and Luis Suarez these days.
Indeed, the almost-former Brazil players have monies of $82 and $78 million respectively, sandwiched by Neymar, whose total at the age of 22 is a frightening $80 million.
