GARY Lineker hopes to score in business after setting up a property development company to add to his fortune.
Lineker, 59 – who this week agreed to take a £400,000 BBC pay cut – could recoup the cash after launching the firm with a pal.
Lineker, said to be worth about £30million, and builder George Constand, 33, have established GCGL Properties.
They are the only directors of the company in Croydon, South London.
A source said: “Gary is a very canny operator and knows an opportunity when he sees one.
“He’s set this up with someone he trusts and wants to make money from the housing market.”
