Ireland's record goal scorer may be coming to the end of his career but hopefully there's a little magic left in those boots. Keane (35), who has played for Coventry, Wolves, Inter Milan, Leeds United, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur (again) and LA Galaxy, has been on huge salaries for the last 16 years, including around €4.13m per year at LA Galaxy.

The Tallaght man also picked up good signing-on fees as part of his cumulative €81m in transfers. There is property in LA, a €1.6m house in Malahide as well as an office block in Cork. Keane has invested in a number of tax driven schemes including a lucrative deal to bankroll Hollywood blockbusters including Avatar and X-Men. He is married to Ultimo lingerie model Claudine.
