Marcus Rashford and Phil Foden’s earnings away from starring for Manchester United and Manchester City on a weekly basis have been revealed with the England internationals involved in numerous businesses away from their footballing endeavours.
We’re already well aware of Rashford’s philanthropic acts following the 25-year-old’s involvement in the ‘Free School Meals’ campaign as well as having a handful of books on sale. But the Three Lions forward is also shrewd when it comes to business opportunities.
Aside from earning a reported £200,000 per-week at United, Rashford also earns £48,000 a day from his businesses. Accounts from Companies House showed that the footballer’s businesses made £17.7million in the 12 months to April 2022 and hold total assets of £31 million.
The 25-year-old’s image rights company MUCS Enterprises did particularly well, increasing its assets from £9.1million to £20.1million. Additionally, housing business MUCS Properties made a £6.5million profit and now has £9.7million worth of assets.
MUCS Investments is also understood to have held £292,227 in assets as of January 2022 and a private security business called MUCS Security has been set up, of which the MBE is sole director. The company is yet to file its accounts.
As quoted by theSun, a source said: “Marcus is a bright bloke — and very quick to spot a business opportunity. His determination and drive comes from his childhood when he struggled. And he is now as good at spotting chances off the pitch, as he is on it — as his earnings show.”
