English-born footballers in Premier League attract most sponsorship: Wealth-X report

Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o is the wealthiest foreign-born English Premier League (EPL) player, with a net worth of 39 million (US$64 million), according to a Wealth-X list that also includes players from Spain, Argentina and the Czech Republic.

Cameroonian-born Eto'o signed a one-year deal with Chelsea in August 2013 for an undisclosed fee, although several media reports claimed he took a substantial pay cut to move to the English club from Russian football club, Anzhi Makhachkala. The combined fortunes of the ten footballers on the 'foreign-born' list is 245 million (US$402 million).

But this is 10 million less than the combined net worth of the individuals on Wealth-X's list of the wealthiest English-born EPL players.

Wayne Rooney topped that list and also ranks first on the combined list of English and foreign-born EPL footballers - with his 45 million (US$ 73 million) personal fortune.

Three Chelsea players appear in the list, and collectively their combined wealth totals 87 million (US$142 million). Manchester City is also represented by three players on the list, with a combined net worth of 68 million (US$ 111 million).

Below are the top 5 wealthiest foreign-born EPL players:


Michael Byrne, Wealth-X UK Director, said: "The results of this survey may come to a surprise for many, who may have been under the impression that foreign-born EPL players receive more rewarding compensation than their English counterparts.

"English-born footballers in the EPL amass greater sponsorship and are therefore in a position to accumulate greater overall net worth. The foreign-born run-down certainly produces more surprises than the English-born list".
