Footballer-turned-coach Mikel Arteta made a lot of money during his playing days, although he wasn’t the most high-profile name. He started out at Barcelona, before playing for Paris Saint-Germain, Rangers, Real Sociedad, Everton and Arsenal, before becoming a manager for Manchester City and Arsenal. It’s notoriously private, but how much is it really worth?
What is Mikel Arteta net worth?
Mikel has never been one to flash cash and share the ins and outs of his life on social media, but that hasn’t stopped him from racking up over 1.5 million followers on Twitter and nearly 900,000 on Instagram. He is estimated to be worth £15m, but some sources claim up to £70m.
After his impressive 17-year career as a football player, he began a coaching apprenticeship as an assistant to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. He spent 12 years of his Premier League career with Everton and Arsenal. He had a £75,000-a-week contract with Everton, but it was reported he took a pay cut to join Arsenal in 2011. His pay is believed to have risen rapidly when he became captain of the team in 2014.
As head coach of Arsenal, he reports that he brings in around £5million a year. He currently has a four-year deal worth an impressive £20m until 2023.

Along with his coaching role, Arteta is likely to have sponsorships and endorsements that bolster his bank account.
As a player, he had sponsorship deals with adidas and Puma, but it appears he is not tied to a single sponsor. He has previously been seen wearing Nike boots at Manchester City and adidas at Arsenal.
He’s been deprived of his personal life and limiting what he shares online, but fans are getting a behind-the-scenes look at a new series.
