Top 10 Luxury Homes Of Footballers

10. Willian
The Brazilian winger joined Chelsea in the summer of 2013 for a ludicrous fee of £31 million, but he has failed to live up to the expectations. 

Willian is talented, no doubt about that, but he has never been able to light up the games, just like he used to when he was playing for Shakhtar Donetsk. But he can’t complain; the Brazilian has a nice house and a couple of months ago he posted a picture of it. It is huge, fancy and with a pool inside.

9. John Obi Mikel
Despite managing only five shots on target in four seasons for the Blues in the Premier League, scoring just one league goal in his entire career at Stamford Bridge, John Obi Mikel is living life to the fullest. 
With an annual salary close to £6 million, outside profits from endorsements and commercials, the question is: how do you spend all that money?  Mikel has bought some expensive cars and also owns a huge mansion in London.

8. Luke Shaw
Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw rents a fabulous five-bedroom mansion owned by Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo. Shaw is thought to be paying the Portugal ace £7,000 per month. 
The house is located in Alderley Edge, Cheshire, has an indoor swimming pool, steam room and Jacuzzi and also it has its own gym and wine store area. The mansion sits on a private road and has a gated entrance. Use your money Luke!

7. Peter Crouch
The towering English striker might easily be one of the most traveled players in the Premier League. Peter Crouch bought a £4.5 million mansion in 2011, and it wasn’t that hard for him to splash that amount of money since he was earning £80,000 per-week at Portsmouth. 
His mansion boasts a gym, a cinema room and a swimming pool and the house is located in Pretsbury. The house has a large kitchen and 10,200 square foot of living space.

6. Oscar
The Brazilian playmaker took the world by storm in 2012 with a superb brace against Juventus in the Champions League, but has struggled to replicate his form this season. With the Serie A champions eying up a move for Oscar, the future of the 23-year-old midfielder seems far from certain. 
He can’t complain, though. The Brazilian earns £90,000 per-week, allowing him to buy a £1.1 million house in Surrey, a very nice one.

5. Theo Walcott
Arsenal’s midfielder Theo Walcott is the type of player, who doesn’t like to brag about his wealth or anything. However, he does own a huge mansion in Hertfordshire. 
His house was subject to a burglary back in 2011, while all his family was in the stadium cheering for him. The property, however, went up for sale for £1.7 million following the incident. It seems that Theo Walcott and his family wanted to move out of that area.

4. Frank Lampard
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has a 19,500 square meters house, valued at more than £5 million. The huge property consists of 10 bedrooms, a boat dock and a swimming pool. 
It also has a tennis court, a guest house and a Private Driveway long in the house. Frankie is going to play in the MLS next season and he has set his eyes on a stunning £64,000 a- month apartment in New York. From London to New York with class!

3. Didier Drogba
Chelsea is a quite fancy area. Some even say that it’s a footballer dream. Just take a close look at the huge mansion of Didier Drogba. According to Rich Lifestyles, the Chelsea striker is believed to have the most expensive home among footballers. 
His house has 8 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and some rooms for children. The mansion was built back in 2007, but it is still valued at $21 million. He has plenty of space to place trophies too.

2. John Terry
Chelsea captain John Terry bought the£ 4.35 million former mansion of golfer Colin Montgomerie a couple of months ago. 
The stunning mansion has seven bedrooms, which is nested in a half-acre estate in Oxshot, Surrey, has also six bathrooms, four reception rooms and a two-bedroom staff annex.  It is considerably smaller than his former homes, but it is still a lovely house. John Terry earns a reported £175,000 per-week.
1. Wayne Rooney

England and Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney may not have the Hollywood appeal of David Beckham, but he and his wife have expensive tastes with homes all over the world. Among other houses, the mansion located in the village of Prestbury stands out. 

The house is valued at £7.5 million near many other English celebrities, on what is now hailed as the most expensive road in North England. It’s all about money!
