When Joe Citizen has to unload a vehicle and selling at the dealership isn't in the cards, listing the model one Craigslist, Auto Trader, or BringATrailer.com are all viable options. When Wayne Rooney needs to get rid of his Land Rover Ranger Rover Sport, he does the same thing - albeit through a third party.

Here's a roundup of the most expensive footballers' cars currently on Auto Trader, with descriptions provided by the company.

Alex Song's Rolls-Royce Wraith, £119,950

Ex-Arsenal player, Alex Song, decided to sell his beloved Rolls Royce after enjoying it for two years, due to his move to Switzerland in 2018. Built in 2014, this two-door 6.6l engine only has just 19,120 miles on the clock. No expense was spared on the vehicle, with a full black leather interior, chrome details and even massage seats.

Vincent Kompany's Ford Mustang, £49,499

Reminiscent of the Transformers Bumblebee, Vincent Kompany's limited edition Ford Mustang Shelby GT-California is one of just 215 made. The former Manchester City footballer is the only previous owner of the 4.6l manual car, which has just 3,000 miles on the clock. It's been fitted with a Ford Racing Power Upgrade Package, and superbly finished in Grabber Orange.

Wayne Rooney's Land Rover Range Rover Sport, £50,000

Rumoured to be Coleen Rooney's run-around, this 3.0l automatic Land Rover Range Rover Sport has done 74,000 miles. The SUV comes with red and black interiors, and is equipped with a freeview TV, no doubt to keep the kids entertained.

Michael Keane's Land Rover Range Rover, £49,990

England and Everton's centre back, Michael Keane, looked after his Land Rover Range Rover well, with the 3.0l diesel carrying just 33,000 miles on the clock. The pristine interiors include a digital tv, full rear seat entertainment system, and even massage seats.

This show-stopping Porsche Cayenne is a one-of-a-kind, having been made exclusively for former footballer, George Boateng in 2008. It's been wrapped in metal flake ice white, with chrome details and 22 inch wheels. The automatic SUV has a 4.8l engine and 78,000 miles on the clock.

Christian Fuchs' Land Rover Defender 90, £49,950

This SUV was bought as a celebration for Leicester City winning the Premier League back in 2016, with the team's manager, Ranieri, buying Defenders for each of his defenders – clever. Christian Fuchs' Land Rover Defender 90 has done just 500 miles since then and remained in impeccable condition. The 2.2l manual can do 0-60mph in 15.8 seconds, has cloth black interiors, and a full Overfinch Defender signature on the front.

Mystery Southampton defender, Porsche Macan, £38,995

Previously owned by a mystery Southampton defender, this Porsche Macan can do 0-62mph in 5.2 seconds, and has a top speed of 159mph. The SUV is fitted with GTS sports seats in the front, brushed aluminium and black interiors, and high spec BOSE speakers.

Mark Hateley's Ferrari 512, £174,900

This beautiful 1993 two-door Ferrari 512 TR coupe's first owner was former English footballer and manager, Mark Hateley. The iconic car features classic Ferrari designs, including crema leather interiors, Rosso carpets and Cavallino embossed seats. The 4.9l engine is a manual and runs on petrol.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's Porsche 911, £37,500

Originally owned by former footballer, Jerrel "Jimmy" Floyd Hasselbaink back in 2003, this Porsche 911 has since had four other owners. The most recent owner is privately selling the 3.6l automatic through Auto Trader, having restored the car with no expense spared six years ago. The bodywork is immaculate whilst the interiors boast custom alcantara interior with metropole blue leather.

Electric vehicles

Three new EVs we can't wait to see

The F-150 Lightning is just one of several new EVs we'll see soon.

Ford

With all the crazy news coming out of the auto industry this year, it'd be easy to believe that the rollout of new models is slowing to a snail's pace. The pandemic and ongoing microchip shortage have slowed vehicle production, to be sure, but they haven't put the brakes on automakers' push to roll out exciting new electric vehicles. In the next few months alone, we'll see several new electric trucks, cars, and SUVs hit the market, some of which will break new ground and help define their segments. We're on board with this trend 100 percent, and to help you get excited, we've rounded up a few of our favorites.

Here are the three upcoming electric vehicles we're most excited to see.

Ford F-150 Lightning

One of the world's best-selling and most popular vehicles is going electric. The Ford F-150 Lightning is set to arrive in 2022 with a fully electric powertrain, forward-looking technology, and a familiar style that will make any truck lover feel at home. We don't have full details on the truck, but Ford has shared some awe-inspiring performance numbers. The Lightning will offer around 563 horsepower and 775 pound-feet of torque, which should push the truck to 60 mph from a standstill in just four seconds. Payload capacity comes in at up to 2,000 pounds, and towing will reach 10,000 pounds for specific configurations.

The Lightning's starting price will come in under $40,000, but don't get your hopes up about actually buying one for that amount. Ford says the entry-level Lightning is a commercial truck that will be a stripped-down work-ready vehicle, which likely means features like vinyl seats and far fewer of the desirable tech goodies that you'll want. To get the truck you and your family will want to drive, you'll need to spring for the XLT model, which starts just shy of $53,000. That's quite a bit more, but it is still a somewhat reasonable price to pay for what will surely be a capable electric pickup.

Mercedes-Benz EQS

The S-Class is a unique model in Mercedes-Benz's lineup. The car typically showcases the automaker's latest technologies and design techniques and offers a glimpse of the features that eventually trickle down to the rest of Mercedes' vehicles. Soon, we'll see the EQS, a fully electric flagship sedan that paves the way for the brand's other electrified offerings. The car will have a range of well over 400 miles on a charge, up to 516 horsepower, rear-axle steering, and breathtaking technology.

The EQS is expected to land sometime late in 2021 and will carry a price tag that matches its premium brand name and top-notch feature set. Pricing for the "entry-level" EQS 450+ will come in at around $100,000, while the top EQS 580 4MATIC will land well north of that number. Remember, though, that Mercedes offers a long list of ultra-desirable options for its cars, so you'll likely shell out more than the base price to get the features you want.

Hyundai Ioniq 5

The Hyundai Ioniq name is nothing new, but the way it will be seen in the automaker's lineup will change significantly going forward. Rather than being a model name within the Hyundai catalog, Ioniq will split off and become its own sub-brand, covering a line of electric vehicles of all types. The Ioniq 5 is the first such vehicle and will be offered in single- or dual-motor configurations that generate 225 or 320 horsepower. The car's futuristic design is attractive and features a pixelated look for the front-end, lighting features, and rear. Inside, the vehicle is clean but comforting and offers the features buyers expect in a family crossover.

The Ioniq 5 should go on sale in late 2021 and is expected to cost between $40,000 and $50,000.

Audi, Bleacher Report, and Major League Soccer (MLS) have teamed up to film a second in-depth look at the footie organization's youth development program. This time around, they're putting the focus on the New York Red Bulls MLS Academy.

Each of the participants in the Academy is being trained and tested in hopes of becoming first and foremost a member of an MLS team, but they also could be part of a national team, or even head overseas to play in the Premier League or other organizations. Last year, filming followed the youth that are a part of Sporting Kansas City's efforts.

The Red Bulls MLS Academy is one of the 94 North American academy clubs that have strategically aligned themselves with MLS's player development platform. During the 2019 season, MLS invested $70 million in the program. As of April 2021, Audi has committed more than $2 million dollars to MLS Academies across North America.

"The Academy"provides an all-access look at the commitments and raw talent of young athletes as they follow their dreams to become professional soccer players. Highlighting the youth talent development system used by every MLS youth Academy in North America, the series gives fans a first-hand account of top players who join an MLS club as early as 12 years old.

Prominent New York Red Bulls personalities featured this coming season include New York Red Bulls Head Coach Gerhard Struber, Academy Director Sean McCafferty, Academy Coach Samuel Castellanos, academy stars like Tyler Adams and Sean Davis, along with Academy players Austin Brummett, Sam Joseph, Serge Ngoma, and Nicholas Rabiu.

The all-access five-part series has debuted exclusively on the Bleacher Report app and will be available across all B/R Football channels.
