Footballers who love Ferrari: Cristiano Ronaldo, Mario Balotelli and Robert Lewandowski are all aficionados of the Italian carmakers

THESE footballers all fancy an Italian, and we’re not talking pasta.

The world’s best players love driving fancy cars and they don’t get any better than Ferrari.

A symbol of speed, luxury and wealth, the Italian carmakers made their first luxury automobile in 1940.

Since then, players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Mario Balotelli have all been seen jumping behind the wheel of these stylish motors.

SunSport champions the Ferrari-riding footballer aficionados, suffering slight car-envy in the process. But who owns what?

David Beckham

When he was still whipping in pinpoint crosses at Man United, Becks owned a gorgeous 360 Spider.

Capable of reaching a top speed of 183 mph, we doubt the former Red Devils star went that fast in it.

But he did pay £120,000 for the supercar in 2001, before selling it privately when he moved to Real Madrid in 2003.

It went up for auction last year and fetched around £95,000.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Not just a Ferrari aficionado, the Real Madrid ace has a car collection with other incredible motors in it worth millions.

But nestled in his garage next to his Bugatti Chiron, Lamborghini Aventador and Bentley Continental is a stunning Ferrari F12 TDf.

Worth an eye-watering £350,000, it’s one of many Ferraris he’s said to have.

The Portuguese is also believed to drive a Ferrari 599 GTO, an F430 and a 599 GTB Fiorano.

Despite seeing his earning potential take a hit at LA Galaxy, at least the Swedish forward has his cars.

One of his flashy motors is a Ferrari Enzo, which is astonishingly valued between one and two million pounds.

Only 200 models of the Enzo were made, which makes it a collector’s item.

Zlatan also owns a Volvo, who he has a sponsorship deal with.

The Chelsea legend has been seen in a number of Ferraris over the years and loves collecting their cars.

In 2015, he bought a classic 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB, which is estimated to be worth over two million pounds.

He also owns his dream car, an Enzo, that he got his hands on in 2013.

It was reported he paid around two million pounds for that, previously admitting it was on his bucket list to drive.

Robert Lewandowski

So, if we told you it belonged to the speedy Bayern Munich striker, you’d hardly be surprised.

Costing around £250,000, Lewandowski is often seen arriving to training in his supercar.

We bet he’s never turned up late once.

Mario Balotelli

Ever the speed demon, the Italian striker loved getting into trouble in his Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.

If he wasn’t caught speeding in it, racing his mates’ Lamborghini, he would be parking the car outside his favourite Manchester restaurants.

The Nice forward was also known to zoom around town in a Ferrari 458 Spider, which retails at around £170,000.

He’s believed to have a car collection worth an estimated one million pounds.

Ryan Bertrand

When they splash the cash on a new car, footballers love sharing their expensive purchase on social media with their followers.

Southampton and England defender Bertrand is no different.

So when he showed off his F12 on Instagram, he couldn’t help but post a mini-toy version his daughter had next to his pride and joy.

Talk about living life in the fast lane.

While visiting his local Tesco Express in North London, the Arsenal striker thought he would take his Ferrari 488 GTB for a spin.

This £250,000 beauty can hit a top speed of 205 mph and is powered by a 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine.

But it doesn’t have much room for shopping bags.

The Man City keeper has been in inspired form this season.

Off it, he’s looked just as stylish too in a Ferrari 458, which has a value of around £170,000.

The Brazilian goalie is often seen taking his ride to training, stopping to sign autographs for fans.

But he won’t want them getting too close and risk damaging his paint work.

Theo Walcott

The former Arsenal forward loves his cars, so it’s no wonder he is in on the Ferrari kick.

However, the Everton star has a Ferrari on the lower end of the scale – the California model worth around £140,000.

Originally, he bought it for his missus Melanie Slade on her 21st birthday, but he enjoys getting use out of it too.

But don’t forget… this is a man who drives a Volkswagen Touareg as well.
