10 Rich Soccer Players Who Own A Private Jet

Cristiano Ronaldo private jet

It is not a secret that soccer players earn huge salaries every single week. They are capable of buying the most expensive accessories of life, and this is because they give a lot on the pitch and are rewarded financially for it.

They are expected to dedicate their time to their contracts with their respective teams; it is therefore not too surprising to see highly exotic cars in multiple numbers in soccer players’ garages. Some of them even have private jets to make their transportation easy in between their very tight schedules.

However, as much as football is very financially rewarding and well-paying, not all soccer players can afford a private jet. Here are the top current and ex-soccer players who own one.

10. Ronaldinho

Ronaldinho owns an Embraer Phenom 100, which he uses to travel with his friends and family.

The jet costs £2.6 million and has a maximum flight range of 1,355 miles at a speed of 466 miles per hour, and can carry seven people max on the go.

According to Patricio Rubio, a former teammate of Ronaldinho who played alongside the 2002 World Cup winner in Mexico, the Brazilian football legend would take his private jet to Cancun to party after matches. Rubio also revealed that he never saw Ronaldinho train on Mondays.

9. Kaká 

Brazilians know how to enjoy their lifestyle, and despite being retired, Kaka has a Cessna Citation CJ3 Plus.

The jet can lift up to nine passengers at a speed of 478 miles per hour and 2,040 nautical miles.

The jet has a fully digital autopilot system in case of an emergency, and it costs £5.7 million.

8. Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale didn’t shy away from putting his preferences in a pyramid before retiring, Wales-Golf-Real Madrid in that order.

Travelling to different golf courses is a small matter for the Welsh with his Cessna Citation XL Plus.

Cessna Citation XL Plus can do up to 2,100 nautical miles and can fly at 507 miles per hour, and for a cost of £8.6 million, it is totally worth it.

7. Neymar Jr.

It will be ironic if one of the world’s most expensive players ever does not have a jet, Neymar, who owns an Embraer Legacy 450.

This jet ferries him around the world at ease, especially for a man who enjoys partying and birthday celebrations.

The plane’s speed can cover up to 531 miles an hour and a whooping 2,900 nautical miles at once.

The £10.8 million priced jet has an enhanced flight vision system and an infrared camera.

In June 2022, it was reported that Neymar’s private jet was forced into an emergency landing in Brazil due to a technical problem. Neymar was on his way to his summer holiday after a long season with PSG and international duty.

6. Wayne Rooney

Former Manchester United player Wayne Rooney owns a Dassault Falcon 900LX that cost £14 million and stands at 66 feet long and 24 feet in height.

The aircraft is considered one of the most fuel-efficient planes in the world. The Dassault Falcon 900LX is a three-engine jet aircraft built by Dassault Aviation.

Rooney has been seen walking to his private jet, which is parked at the airport, in several editorial photos.

5. Paul Pogba

A man of class and royalty like David Beckham only deserves a class jet like the Bombardier Challenger 350, which is the best-selling business jet of the last decade.

At £19 million, the jet can do over 3,200 nautical miles and can reach a top flight speed of 528 miles per hour.

3. Zlatan Ibrahimovic
