EA pays Wayne Rooney £200,000 a year

Publisher splashes the big bucks to win FIFA endorsement from England striker

Electronic Arts pays Wayne Rooney £200,000 a year in sponsorship money, according to the footballer's legal records.

The Man Utd and England striker appears on the box-art for FIFA, as well as in television advertising and other promotional activity for the series.

Details of Rooney's earnings were revealed in a Court case taken out against the star in Manchester this week.

Rooney and wife Coleen are being sued by former sports management agency the James Grant Group for £4m in allegedly unpaid commission.

Legal papers filed in December 2008 revealed details of the Rooney's wealth - at the time estimated to be £35m.

In addition to his club salary of £90,000 a week, Rooney got £760,000 a month for image rights.

He earned £1m a year from Nike, £200,000 a year from EA and £600,000 from a four-year deal with Coca-Cola.

Not a bad little earner...
