Wayne Rooney Net Worth right now. The 10th highest paid footballer (salary) in the world right now, Wayne Rooney is the 8th richest footballer in the world in terms of net worth. Earning a cool £15.6 million every year, the England international might be playing next season at a new club.
Settling for a bit-part role under Jose Mourinho this year, Rooney’s powers as a top notch footballer have firmly been on the decline, but the United number ‘10’ still manages to rake in moolah because of his business ventures, investments and many commercial endorsements.
Rooney’s net worth has been built because of deals with Nike, Harper Colins, Coca-Cola and EA Sports in the past. Also, the former Everton star has made some investments in a hotel at Newcastle and in some real estate.
The poster boy of English football a few years back, it is no surprise to see Rooney ranked among the richest footballers in the world.
