John Terry’s fortune is ‘five times greater’ than Meghan Markle’s and Prince Harry’s combined.
Footballers earn enormous salaries, and former Chelsea captain John Terry is no exception. However, it may come as a surprise to some that the England legend’s net worth is five times that of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The 40-year-old former Blues defender captained both his club and country throughout a 20-year career that saw him become one of the Premier League’s finest ever centre-backs.
Terry left Chelsea after a successful career that featured a Champions League winner’s medal and three league titles to join Aston Villa as an assistant manager, where he stayed until the conclusion of last season.
And he’s reaped the financial benefits of his achievement, surpassing even Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in terms of net worth.
Terry was named one of the top ten richest players in the world by Business Insider in 2017, with a net worth of $50 million (£39 million).
He was an Aston Villa player at the time, earning significantly less than his Chelsea wage, but his net worth has reportedly increased to roughly $70 million (£51 million) following his spell as an assistant coach.
As a former professional player, Terry is now worth far more than Harry and Meghan, who stepped down from formal obligations earlier this year.
As a result, the royal couple no longer receives money from the Crown through the Sovereign Grant, although they continue to amass significant riches from numerous sources.
According to Forbes, the 37-year-old Prince’s main source of money is a £7.3 million bequest from his late mother’s estate, as well as a £50,000-a-year pay as a British army captain.
Despite having purchased a £10.7 million estate in Montecito, California, and still possessing their UK house, Frogmore, the couple’s total worth is estimated to be roughly £7.3 million.
Following a lucrative £73 million contract with Netflix in 2020 to produce diverse documentaries and feature films, that figure is expected to skyrocket.
They’ve also agreed to a three-year podcasting agreement with Spotify, for up to £11 million.
