The list has a few surprising names with Mesut Ozil being the only player on the list from the English Premier League.
He also has the lowest followers on Instagram out of the top 10, with his Facebook followers pushing him up to seventh in the list.
Controversial Real Madrid players James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale make the top five, albeit barely featuring in Real Madrid's squad this season with both rumoured heavily to leave Spain.
Lionel Messi sees himself in third place but at a caveat.
Messi doesn't actually have Twitter, so would easily be second if he did, only trailing second place Neymar by only 300,000 followers.
Cristiano Ronaldo nearly doubles second place Neymar with a difference of 186,500,000 followers.
