Man United star Bruno Fernandes has smashed Mike Tyson net worth

Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has earned some serious money since moving to the Premier League, giving him a net worth even bigger one of the most famous athletes in history.

Since completing a £47m switch from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020, Fernandes has been a key player at Old Trafford.

The Portuguese midfielder impressed so much that in March 2022 he was rewarded with a new eye-watering £240k-a-week contract.

United manager at the time Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was so impressed with Bruno's performances that he opted to increase his star's salary by £60k-a-week.



Fernandes is also a very marketable player, as proven by his Nike boot endorsement - this season the 28-year-old has worn Nike's Mercurial Vapor 15 boots.

That, combined with his bumper salary, means Fernandes has a net worth of £16m, according to Suprise Sports.

Not even legendary boxer Mike Tyson can compete with that kind of money.


The former undisputed heavyweight champion earned over £322m over his lavish career, but he lost every single penny after retiring.

Flashy cars, luxury homes and fashion drained Tyson's accounts, resulting in bankruptcy in 2004.

Since then though the former boxer has turned his life around.

Tyson is now an entrepreneur, earning £500k-a-month through his Tyson Holistic business that produces premium marijuana strains, edibles and extracts.


The business opened its first store in Amsterdam and has contributed to Tyson's current net worth of £8m (according to

"It's a dream come true to open our first coffee shop in Amsterdam," Tyson said after the opening of his new business.

"The Coffeeshop Tyson 2.0 will immerse fans in a full-on experience where they can enjoy my favourite Tyson 2.0 products the way I do.

"I’ve tried and tested all of them, and I can’t wait to share some of my most beloved and undefeated goods with Europe.


Bruno might well be one of the highest earners in the Premier League, but he is nowhere near topping the wage charts at United.

Casemiro, Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho and David de Gea are all believed to be taking home closer to £300k-a-week, so Fernandes has got some catching up to do.
