With help from the Sunday Times Rich List, here are the 10 richest young footballers plying their trade in the Premier League
Many people find how much top-professionals earn interesting. It is also fascinating to occasionally, voyeuristically, peer inside their mansions or super-cars too.
First of all, let’s get the boring information out-of-the-way. According to Wikipedia, the Sunday Times Rich List is:
“…a list of the 1,000 wealthiest people or families resident in the United Kingdom ranked by net wealth. The list is updated annually in April and published as a magazine supplement. The Rich List is not limited to British citizens and it includes individuals and families born overseas but who predominantly work and/or live in Britain.”
Now it is time to reveal the countdown of the wealthiest 10 footballers under 30-years-of-age in the Premier League:
10. David De Gea
Lowest on our richest list is Manchester United’s goalkeeper. Yet do not pity him, the Spanish international has been playing in England since 2011. During that time the current world’s best ‘stopper’ made most of his £18m net worth.
And he is due to sign a new contract with the Red Devils which could see him earn £350,000-a-week. Not bad at all.
9. Daniel Sturridge
A figure of ridicule, unfairly, due to his constant injuries. No one is laughing now, apart from him; yep, all the way to the bank. Although, now I have seen him on this list I feel mildly envious.
An expertly talented and underrated deft-finisher. This former England forward’s total net worth is up £3m this year to £19m. So Mr Sturridge, get down the gym as soon as you can, mate!
8. Alexis Sanchez
Recently moving to United from Arsenal has boosted the eighth placed entrant. According to the Mirror he now amasses a mind-boggling £500,000-a-week.
In his bank account is £21m, up £5m thanks partly to his United bonuses. Surely he will be out to prove he is money well spent next campaign.
Chelsea winger Willian is becoming a real favourite in the elite English league. 2018 net worth for the Brazilian is £23m, this is an annual rise of £4m.
While he isn’t the most appreciated of Chelsea players, he’s certainly a reliant player. He has bad spells but more often than not, he’s coming up with the goods from wide positions.
6. Juan Mata
This Spaniard is universally admired on and off the pitch. However, many may not be aware of his savvy business sense, Mata owns restaurants and more including lucrative sponsors. Known for his smile and bubbly personality, he’s a lot more business-orientated than people would imagine.
