England defender Kyle Walker has the highest energy bills of his fellow Three Lions team-mates — paying about £16,200 a year to heat his mansion, run his swimming pool, fish tank and personal waterfall, according to research from Uswitch.com, the comparison and switching service.
Walker’s £3 million Cheshire home has six bedrooms, a football-themed games room and a hot-tub, making his energy bills 15 times the average household’s £1,125-a-year costs. Thankfully, his £110,000-a-week estimated salary means he can pay off his bill in little more than a day’s work.
The Manchester City star’s home measures about 860m2 — approximately nine times the size of the average 90.18m2 UK house. Walker could save a staggering £3,245 if he moved from a standard variable tariff to one of the best fixed deals on the market.
England and Man City team-mate John Stones spends an estimated £15,900-a-year on energy bills for his £3 million pad, which has six bedrooms, five reception rooms, five bathrooms, a sauna, cinema and leisure complex, plus an indoor pool that costs £5,000 to heat annually.
