Wayne Rooney Net Worth
Wayne Rooney net worth and salary: Wayne Rooney is a British footballer who has a net worth of $160 million and annual salary of $26 million. But it's not his net worth that's made him a famous soccer player around the globe – rather it's been his skill and talent in football that put him on the map. His athletic career began as he was a very young child, playing football with the Liverpool Schoolboys. He seemed destined for greatness even then. At one time he held the organization's record for most goals scored in a single season, at 72 goals. As Rooney grew older, his football star continued to rise, until eventually he was playing for Everton, making his senior debut in 2002, becoming the youngest-ever goal scorer at Everton at the age of 16. In 2004, the outstandingly valuable Rooney was snatched up by Manchester United, where he played until 2017. His career with that organization has been as distinguished as everyone could expect, continuing to break records with the team. Like many big soccer players, Rooney has a career in international football as well, playing in several World Cups. Rooney scored 15 goals in 67 appearances with Everton and 183 goals in 393 caps with Manchester United. He joined Everton once again starting in 2017. Rooney also scored 53 goals representing England in international competition at the senior level. He is a forward or attacking midfielder. With more than 200 Premier League goals he was the second top scorer in history behind just Alan Shearer. Rooney does hold the record for most goals with one Premier League club at 183 with Manchester United. He was named the England Player of the Year in 2008, 2009, 2014, and 2015. He won the Premier League five times with Manchester United and has many individual honors including Premier League Player of the Season, FIFA Club World Cup Most Valuable Player of the Final, and more. In June 2017, Wayne signed a three-year deal with D.C. United of Major League Soccer. Between June 2017 and June 2018, Wayne earned $30 million between salary and endorsements.
