David Beckham is by far the richest footballer in the world.  He makes so much money off of endorsements and advertisements.  I think he actually owns his own socks now.  It's quite incredible to see him so far ahead of every other player.

David Beckham is the best paid footballer currently. Forbes has a good list of the best paid footballers

However I believe your question states "who is the richest" is and this must be their current net worth which I don't know!
