A number of Premier League players are currently active on the popular video-sharing website Cameo, including Thiago Silva, Harry Maguire and Willian.

Founded in 2016, Cameo connects fans with their favorite athletes, musicians, performers, creators, and social media influencers.

Mike Tyson, for example, is charging $300 for a one-off personalised message and recently, he earned over $20,000 for a six hour stint on the website.

A host of Premier League footballers, past and present, are also making a hefty amount for pre-recorded videos that can be downloaded and shared online.
Brazil international Thiago Silva, who plays his club football at Chelsea, has the highest price per video at £317 per message, while Manchester United centre-back Harry Maguire charges a fee of £238.
In terms of current players in England’s top flight, Willian [£238], Trevoh Chalobah [£158] and Oleksandr Zinchenko [£103] also feature on the Premier League section, alongside several former players.

Michael Owen is charging a hefty £143 for a personalised video, while former Manchester United and Newcastle forward Andy Cole makes £119 per message.

Avram Grant, who managed Chelsea, Portsmouth and West Ham in the noughties, currently rakes in a mammoth £792 for every video he makes, although at the time of writing, he has only completed a single recording.

Here is a list of the top earning names in football on Cameo, featuring Emmanuel Adebayor, Adriano and former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann.
