With the combination of luxury and performance, it’s no surprise that the Range Rover Sport is the choice of transport for many footballers.

Arguably England’s best and most important player, it may come as a surprise that Kane doesn’t frolic around in an ostentatious motor, and instead is inclined to the practical and modest Jaguar F-Pace. Kane’s a father of one, and with another on the way, the F-Pace offers a balance of need for speed and domestic life. Its recent upgrade provides the same engine specifications as the Range Rover Sport at half the price – Kane definitely had a ‘strike’ of luck when it came to this deal!

With an entire fleet of cars in his possession, the £140 000 Mercedes G Class takes the crown in Sterling’s collection. Completely impractical in Sterling’s hometown of Manchester, but the G Wagon oozes exclusivity, with a limited number produced a year! Without the glossy exterior and fancy features, the G Class is built for utilitarian off-roading, with military characteristics such as locking differentials in the front and rear axles and low range transfer case.

Starting from £155 000, the Bentley Continental GT is in another league when it comes to luxury motors.
