Man Utd striker Rooney could be hit financially by private life allegations

Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney could be hit hard financially if he splits with wife Coleen.

Coleen could pocket £10million if she divorces love Wayne - and DOUBLE her personal fortune.

Top divorce lawyer Ellen Kerr told The Sun: "If the Rooneys are worth around £35million together, it would seem right that Coleen would be awarded around £10million.

"They have a child so she would have to be given enough money to secure his future and she would take a larger share of the house if it was sold.

"Those nights with another woman have cost him dearly."

He could also lose up to £6million in "family man" sponsorship deals.

Finance expert Adam Johns said: "Rooney's philandering will hit him in the wallet. He could lose millions."
