The England World Cup team is apparently so happy with its performance so far, or are just doing a bit of online shopping during their downtime, that they are planning a post-Russia spending spree on luxury cars. This news came from Magnitude Finance, which has 13 members of the 23-man England squad on its client roster.
Magnitude Finance looks after celebrity car purchases and told the Daily Mail and other press, “it has been preparing numerous vehicle finance packages for players and their wives and girlfriends ready for when the tournament ends.”
It also reports that the average price of the cars on the team members’ wish lists is in the region of £215,000. Interestingly, that also happens to be the exact amount of the bonus each player will get if England goes on to win the World Cup. Perhaps they know something that football fans don’t?
What cars do World Cup footballers want to buy?
Head of sales at Magnitude Finance, Tim Marlow, said: “From the proposals we’re putting together, it will be the largest amount of finance provided for our footballer clientele during a summer – irrespective of how England fair in Russia. Many of the England squad, their wives and girlfriends and Premiership-based players representing other nations are looking to buy new cars either to mark a good tournament, or as a treat at the end of the season.”
The cars they will be treating themselves to include the 2018 Range Rover, the Bentley Continental GT, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, an Audi R8 and the Lamborghini Urus, Lambo’s first venture into the world of SUVs. The average price tag of £215,000 also suggests that the World Cup footballers will be going for plenty of customised options, raising the cost of each luxury car.
Tim Marlow also believes that the sudden rise in vehicle finance requests from the players is due to giving a lot of time on their hands, saying: “Since landing in Russia, there has been a significant increase in traffic from the region to our website, which tells us they are busy looking at finance options for their next car purchase.”
He also pointed out that the players were very competitive about their car purchases – they all want to have the best, most exclusive car with the rarest features, he told the media.
