2018 Africa's Richest Footballer [See Net Worth]

Yaya Touré, Manchester City — net worth £43 million ($55 million); enough to make the world's top 10 richest footballers and Africa's wealthest.

Yaya Touré defied media speculation linking him with a transfer to AC Milan and Inter Milan by signing a one-year contract extension at Manchester City.

He was previously earning £10.4 million ($13.3 million) a year but might have had to accept a 50% pay-cut just to stay at the Etihad Stadium.

Toure is the only African player in this bracket, but didn't in any way get to the £100 million mark.

Net worth data from the Sunday Times rich list, Forbes, and financial services site shows that only three out of the ten footballers are worth over £100 million: Cristiano Ronaldo worth £250 million, Lionel Messi £230 million and Zlatan Ibrahramovic £110 Million. Even Neymar, the world most expensive player, is yet to attain the situation
