Ronaldo and Messi top Instagram’s rich footballers list

Global megastars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi reign supreme atop the 2024 football Instagram rich list.

Cristiano Ronaldo, boasting a staggering 617.2m followers on Instagram, claims the top spot among Instagram’s football rich list, raking in approximately £1,537,855 ($1,960,000) per post. Ronaldo’s arch-rival Messi follows closely, earning £1,239,794 ($1,580,000) for every post on the social media platform, according to Football’s Finest.

Kylian Mbappe secures the third spot, with earnings nearing £277,532 ($353,423) per post, while Arsenal and England standout Bukayo Saka surprisingly clinches fourth place. Saka, boasting 5.8 million Instagram followers, earns £233,756 ($297,600) per post.

Completing the top five is Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, while Manchester City’s goal-scoring sensation Erling Haaland lands in eighth place. Harry Kane, Jude Bellingham, and Kevin De Bruyne also secure spots in the top ten.

Despite nearing the twilight of their illustrious careers, Messi and Ronaldo’s dominance extends beyond the pitch. Messi will feature for Inter Miami against his boyhood club Newell’s Old Boys on February 16 in a pre-season friendly. While the 39-year-old Ronaldo is scheduled to play for Al-Nassr against Al-Hilal on Thursday.
