Anthony Joshua £107m And Odion Ighalo With £18m Networth Make Top 20 Richest Sport Star’s List In England



They are one of the wealthiest clubs in the world so it perhaps unsurprising to see Manchester United dominate the Sunday Times Rich List for for those aged 30 or under.



There are five players inside the top 18 – with Paul Pogba leading the way from the Old Trafford outfit.

The midfielder, 27, sits third in this list with a wealth of £50million. His income has increased by £13m from 2019 seeing him jump up five places from eighth.
Joining Pogba is goalkeeper David de Gea. The Spaniard – who became Manchester United’s highest-paid star after signing a new £375000-a-week contract in September – is joint-fourth at £34m.

His earnings rose by £10m to see him move alongside Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne.

Like De Gea, Anthony Martial signed a new deal at United last year – worth £200,000-a-week – and that increase has helped him become a new entry in this list. He sits joint-11th at a wealth of £20m with Liverpool centre back Virgil van Dijk – who is another new entry.

Luke Shaw and Odion Ighalo complete the quintuplet of Red Devils. New entry Shaw sits joint-13th with Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah at £19m.
Meanwhile Ighalo is just beneath them in joint-15th. The striker’s £18m wealth is factored by his substantial £300,000-a-week wage at parent club Shanghai Shenhua.
Ighalo, who will be 31 in June, is on loan at United until the end of the month with the Premier League side contributing £130,000-a-week towards his wages.

From the top 20, football dominates the list with 17 places while Anthony Joshua is the only non-footballer having made the cut.

The British boxer sits second in the list with a wealth of £107m. This is an increase of £58m from 2019 – the biggest fortune rise of anyone.

The 30-year-old made the majority of his money from his two bouts with Andy Ruiz Jnr last year. The first fight – which resulted in a shock loss- took place at Madison Square Garden, New York in June.
The rematch in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – which saw him regain the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight belts, is reported to have earned him an estimated £60m before tax and deduction.

Only Gareth Bale topples Joshua. Bale, who was second last year and turns 31 in July, has moved into first with a wealth of £114m. The Real Madrid forward’s fortune has increased by £20m.
The most surprising entry in the top 10 is Daniel Sturridge. Sturridge is ninth in the list with a wealth of £22m. This is despite the fact he has been without a club since March.

The 30-year-old is currently serving a four-month ban for breaching betting rules and saw his contract at Turkish club Trabzonspor had been terminated by mutual agreement as a result.
