Four years after moving to ex-Premier League champions Leicester and making his senior club debut, Faiq Bolkiah – the player whose royal bloodline is rich in wealth most clubs can only dream of – has moved to Portugal.
Former Southampton, Arsenal and Chelsea youth player Bolkiah has an amazing estimated value of $ 20 billion as he is the son of Jefri Bolkiah the Prince of Brunei and the nephew of Hassanal Bolkiah, the current Sultan of Brunei .
Born in Los Angeles, he is the captain of the Brunei national team, and enjoys hanging out with his favorite tiger, although he didn’t make the lavish effort his father allegedly spent paying $ 16 million to the late pop star Michael Jackson quite reached his 50th birthday part in a Brunei amusement park in 2013.
In an extraordinary representation at the Vanity Fair in 2011, the Prince of Brunei is said to have been a “constant companion in hedonism” to his brother, who was the richest man in the world in 1987.
The couple reportedly drove their Ferraris through the streets of the capital Bandar Seri Begawan in Brunei at midnight and sailed a fleet of yachts, among which Bolkiah named three of his yachts after parts of the female bosom.
Her extravagant spending included importing ponies and Argentine players for polo games, buying five-star hotels in London, Paris, Beverly Hills and beyond, and taking over businesses like the Queen’s jeweler in London, the Bolkiah supposedly had paid $ 385 million for 1995.
The Sultan once built a 49-acre palace house with 1,788 rooms while his brother, whom the outlet dubbed the country’s “infamous royal playboy”, had asked for $ 800 million for two properties and paid $ 800,000 for statues with numbers in the crisis of the Gender as part of the details set out during a lawsuit suing two British attorneys over $ 23 million.
Bolkiah junior signed his first professional contract with City soon after they shocked the world by winning the Premier League in 2016 and signing a three-year deal that was renewed in 2019.
Although the 22-year-old winger has played six games since joining the Foxes and scored once for his country, he was unable to join the first team at King Power Stadium and has now moved to Portuguese club Maritimo.
The Primeira Liga club is based in Madeira – known as the birthplace and home of another billionaire, Cristiano Ronaldo – and has an average attendance of under 7,000. The last time he won a major trophy was when he won the Campeonato de Portugal in 1926.

“I’m sure this is the right club for me and my career,” said Bolkiah, targeting an upcoming game against former Champions League winners Porto.
“My goal is to always get the best out of myself in every training session and to develop myself in every game and to help the team with everything that is needed.
“I am very happy to be here and to have made this decision.”
