Wayne Rooney ‘plotting to make his family RICHER than the Beckhams with new multi-billion pound marketing deal amid US move ‘
Footballer Wayne Rooney has reportedly signed a multi-billion dollar marketing deal in the United States to rival that of David Beckham’s.
The former England star, 32 – who has just crossed Stateside to play for Washington team DC United – is said to make a fortune with his latest signing with marketing giant Octagon.
According to The Sun, the deal is set to be signed this week and could see Wayne become one of America’s richest soccer players.

The publication reported that Wayne – who moved to Washington with wife Colleen and four children in July – could even see success on reality TV, as well as endorsements for sports, food, phones and cars.
The new deal could see Wayne and his brood earn more than David, who earned a whopping £175million in marketing following his move to LA Galaxy in 2007.
But Wayne’s new contract could see the star topple what the fellow England star earned, with the potential to see even more income.
David – who is married to wife Victoria and shares four children with her – once reached number eight on the Forbes list of top-paid athletes following his five-year endorsements deal.

An insider told the paper: ‘Things have really fallen into place for Wayne and his family so far and he’s loving life in America…
‘This deal was a key part of his and Coleen’s plan to move there and will open them up to a completely new audience…
‘The promotion deals will feature all the Rooneys. Brands are already lining up to work with him — there is even talk of a reality TV series.’
MailOnline have contacted Wayne’s representatives for comment.

Coleen and her brood, sons Kai, Klay, five, Kit, two, and Cass, six-months, joined Wayne in Washington, after confirming they will uproot from their Manchester home and relocate across the pond.
The TV star’s recent social media posts came as she insisted it was an easy decision to uproot her life in Manchester to move overseas, claiming there was ‘no doubt’ that she would go with Wayne.
She told The Mirror: ‘I don’t think the move will affect us as a family – as long as you are all together, we can take on anything. When Wayne signed, there was no doubt in my mind that we wouldn’t go…

‘We are a family. Especially for the kids. You want your mum and dad when you are growing up – like my mum and dad were there for me. We have always been a close unit – I want that for my kids as well.’
She did concede that it was hard when her sons are so settled in their Manchester home in the UK. Wayne, who is reportedly earning a staggering £300,000-a-week from the move, announced the move last month.
Coleen took to Instagram to mark the moment and excitedly announced: ‘Wishing our Daddy and my Wayne all the luck, happiness and success in America!!! It’s a move we are going to do as a family.’
