Not many former athletes have billions of dollars, but Jordan is a special case.

Throughout his career, the NBA legend regularly surprises. He always knows how to create new turning points both on and off the field. While playing for the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards, Jordan earned just over £66 million – a negligible amount when compared to his brand.

Forbes says Jordan has earned £1.32 billion from being the face of brands such as Nike, Hanes and beverage company Gatorade. More specifically, since 1984, Nike’s Air Jordan shoe model alone has helped the former athlete pocket 1 billion pounds.

Overall, Jordan, the owner of the Charlotte Hornets basketball team in the NBA, has a net worth of around £1.2 billion.

According to the above estimates, the combined net worth of Messi and Ronaldo is £672 million, a huge number. Even so, this is still lower than Jordan’s net worth, which is around 1.2 billion. Even when adding Messi and Ronaldo’s money together, they are still around £500 million behind Jordan.

This gap is expected to widen, given the fact that Messi and Ronaldo are playing the final years of their careers.
