Richest Barcelona Player, Not Popular among the Squad.

Martin Braithwaite is the second richest player at FC Barcelona after Lionel Messi, according to Forbes. Braithwaite owns a real estate business with his uncle that has a market value of 250 million USD as well as a clothing business with his wife and a smart house project in Philadelphia.

Given the fact that Messi is currently a free agent, the Danish forward is technically the richest player in Barcelona's squad.

He has invested millions in providing affordable, smart housing in historically black neighborhoods in Philadelphia and New Jersey, while also working on ways to provide more opportunities to African-Americans in the tech industry and entrepreneurship.

Braithwaite and his uncle are founders of NYCE Companies, a real estate company that offers shares of real estate investments via IPOs. His uncle, Philip Michael and the Barcelona star intend to help inspire and create 100,000 millionaires of color through this project.

Braithwaite began his venture in real estate in 2017 with an investment of 850,000 USD. Today the same business is worthy 250 million USD. In addition, he runs the 'Trente' clothing business that has reached a success in France as well as the Gava restaurant near Barcelona.

Recently, Braithwaite and his Uncle launched "The TEMPLE," a smart home project designed for Temple University featuring Virtual Reality leasing, Al-powered VIP concierge and keyless/facial recognition.
