Ex-France and Arsenal star Mathieu Flamini has built up an eye-watering net worth in retirement that dwarfs that of Brazil’s World Cup icon Ronaldo by a difference of more than £10billion.

Ronaldo is living a fine life in retirement with a net worth in the region of £133million and ownership of a football club – but his wealth is dwarfed by that of Arsenal hero Mathieu Flamini.

With the Brazil icon purchasing a majority stake in Real Valladolid and a controlling stake in Cruzeiro since calling time on his career – Flamini has been even busier.

Flamini, 37, who had two spells with Arsenal and also lined up for Crystal Palace, retired in 2019 after co-founding the appropriately named biochemical company GF Biochemicals.

With GF Biochemicals breaking ground by becoming the first to be able to mass-produce levulinic acid – which is an oil substitute with numerous uses – Flamini and business partner Pasquale Granata have earned millions.

Not only that, but Forbes estimate that their stakes in the company give them a net worth of £10.2billion each.

With over 400 workers on their books, the genius duo have also shared their progression with other forward-thinking minds who are helping the environment.

Speaking of their project, Flamini said: “What we’re trying to achieve here is to tackle the chemical pollution.

“This investment is a first step of a major journey which will also move in the direction of developing key partnerships and agreements with large producers of household and industrial goods.”

Flamini was known as a tough tackling midfielder during his career, starting at Marseille before two spells with Arsenal either side of a stint with AC Milan.

Ronaldo, on the other hand, is focussed on his ownership roles in both Spain and France – while supporting Brazil from Qatar at the current World Cup.

Earlier in the year, the former Barcelona and Real Madrid striker went on a 280-mile cycling tour to fulfil a promise to his Real Valladolid players.

He had to fulfil the bet after they secured promotion to La Liga from the second division, following the Camino de Santiago trail.
