Luca de la Torre Net Worth And Career

The American player has been playing professional soccer since he was 13 and would later play 64 matches for the Dutch team. Moreover, having been a part of Premier League’s Fulham, he must have amassed a considerable amount of wealth. So, we can assume that Luca de la Torre’s net worth must be massive.

Torre made his Fulham debut on August 9, 2016, in the EFL Cup first-round match against Leyton Orient, while his first league game was against Bolton Wanderers in 2017, where he played as a substitute. He scored his first goal for Fulham in another EFL Cup game against Millwall in 2018.

Likewise, Torre signed a two-year deal with Heracles on August 6, 2020, and provided an assist on his Eredivisie debut a month later against ADO Den Haag. He was also named in the Team of the Month in March 2021, followed by another Team of the Month in January of next year.

Aside from that, the soccer player made his senior team debut for US Team in a friendly match against the Republic of Ireland as a substitute on June 2, 2018. Then, on February 2, 2022, he made his full debut against Honduras in the World Cup Qualifiers.

According to Salary Sport, Torre earns $2,515 (£2,000) per week, totaling to $130,818 (£104,000) annually from Heracles. Furthermore, with his contract expiring on June 30, 2023, the Dutch team must have planned for a contract extension. So, that might further increase Luca’s income. Hence, Luca de la Torre’s net worth must be immense.

Is Luca de la Torre Single?
