Inside Gary Neville’s booming business empire including plush hotels and football team as star is set for Dragons' Den | The Sun

GARY NEVILLE has swapped a glistening career in football with a booming business empire.

Earlier today the Manchester United legend and Sky Sports pundit announced his latest gig after landing a role on hit BBC show Dragons' Den.

But becoming a Dragon is simply the culmination of more than a decade of savvy decisions that have seen his business portfolio bring in tens of millions of pounds every year.

Neville owns a chain of hotels and townhouses after first getting into property development in his early 20s.

Among his prize assets are a string of hotels and development projects.

His investments include Hotel Football, a luxury hotel overlooking Old Trafford, and the stunning Stock Exchange Hotel near Piccadilly Gardens.

He is also part of the £120million St Michael's Project, which aims to build apartments, hotels, offices and a high-end restaurant in the city centre.

However, the 48-year-old's business stakes do not end there.

League Two side Salford City are perhaps his most famous investment alongside fellow members of the Class of 92'.

He founded "Relentless" – an investment company who specialise in ventures around the Manchester area – in 2015, while also running property and construction consultancy firm "Zerum".

His use of the name "Relentless" has a particular affinity with Neville.

Writing on his website, he said: "'Relentless' is my favourite word and sums up my approach to life, business, everything really."

He adds these vision and values "are embedded within the fabric of everything that we do".

Neville even has his fingers in show production, co-founding Buzz 16 in 2017.

The firm's work can be credited on programmes such as The Overlap, Soccerbox and Class of 92 Full Time.

In February, he sold his controlling stake in the company for a reported fee of £200m.

Before leaving the venture in 2019 he was also a senior investor in E3 Creative, a digital creative agency who specialise in online marketing and corporate strategy.

GG Hospitality, a hospitality management company, are another of Neville's ventures, along with a higher education institution named University Academy 92.
