PELE is considered one of the greatest players of all time alongside Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Brazilian, born in 1940, made a name for himself in his homeland with Santos.
His incredible goal tally saw him score 77 goals in 92 games for Brazil in 14 years with the national team.
During that time he won an incredible three World Cups and showed how much he was worth to Brazil.
But here at SunSport we have all the information on how much he’s worth off the pitch.
What is Pele’s net worth?
At the peak of his career, Pele was the highest paid athlete in the world and holds many records
With 1,297 career goals, he remains the all-time leading goalscorer after breaking through at the age of just 15.
His reported net worth is $100 million which is equivalent to £83 million as claimed by Forbes.
While that doesn’t compare anywhere to Ronaldo and Messi, it’s important to remember that Pele played in a different generation without the record-breaking deals and sponsorship deals of the 21st century.
After his playing career, he was also Minister of Sports for Brazil and a true icon of football in South America.
Pele reportedly earned around $10 million or £8.3 million a year from his businesses after his playing days were over, with his net worth rising to $100 million or £83 million in 2022.
