Harry Redknapp is raking in almost as much as the average Premier League footballer – by playing the property game.
The ex-soccer boss and wife Sandra run firms that made £2.6million in the last 12 months, working out at £50,000-a-week.
The bonanza is detailed in accounts for property outfits HJR Enterprises Ltd and Pierfront Developments Ltd.
The bank balances of the two firms have nearly doubled in a year, from £2.7million to £5.3million.
HJR, which manages building projects, has revealed a £1.2million upsurge in income, while Pierfront’s retained income rose from £300,000 to more than £1.7million.
A source said: “Harry’s proving himself to be just as successful in the property game as he was in the beautiful game.

“He’s a shrewd operator and does his research, just like he did as a manager. He’s a winner in everything he does.”
He won millions of new fans when he entered ITV’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here in 2018, winning the show to be crowned King of the Jungle.
He later signed a £500,000 deal to star in sports-based TV ads for McDonald’s, and took part in a money-spinning 32-date UK tour talking about his football career and time in the jungle.
He went on to whip 13 England legends back into shape for ITV series Match Fit – and is now being tipped to appear in EastEnders.
Harry grew up in Poplar, east London, where his dad worked as a docker, before signing for West Ham in 1965.
He is believed to have built up a personal fortune of £14million and owns a mansion in millionaires’ playground Sandbanks, near Poole, Dorset, where he lives with Sandra, 73.
Our source added: “Harry has come a long way since his childhood in the East End. He’s a real grafter and he deserves everything he’s got.”
