Who is his wife?

Rey Manaj is not married yet, but he is dating his girlfriend. However, he has not revealed any information about her. 

They were spotted together in Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 on July 5, 2023. They had returned from Milan to London

According to sources, they had packed light as they knew that their trip to London would not be long.

He spent lockdown with his family

But during the COVID-19 pandemic, Rey was fortunate to spend time with his parents, grandmother, and his beloved pet, a labrador named Budino, in Barcelona

He got to eat Albanian food like sultjash. 

He also enjoyed his free time reading books, including The Secret, which espouses the virtues of positive mental thinking. 

He said in an interview that the book has helped him a lot during difficult times. He really likes reading because of the details, and it clears his mind.

He gifted his parents a car

There is no gift in this world that can reward every sacrifice you made for me

His parents lift the cover to discover a black Mercedes Benz. They both get emotional and happy at the same time. 

The person handed over the car's key to his father.

Why he didn't have a good time at Inter Milan?

Rey, along with his entire family, has always been an Inter Milan fan and rejoiced for the Scudetto. 

He joined Inter Milan on July 14, 2015, by signing a five-year contract for a 1 million euro fee. 

During his time at Inter Milan, he was loaned out to Pescara from 2016 to 2017, Pisa in 2017, and Granada from 2017 to 2018. 

He was suspended from Pescara due to his behavior. 

Massimo Oddo, the coach of Pescara, said Manaj was out for disciplinary reasons, and he was not there to tell what had happened in the dressing room, but that day, something happened that should not have happened. 

Oddo added he prefers to take a player from the youth team instead of a player who does not know how to behave. 

During an interview, Rey said that his time in Inter Milan was not good because he didn't have the right attitude. 

At that time, his parents had told him to be humble, but he did not understand why it was important. 

They also advised him not to do things, but he was wrong. He also said his maturity is thanks to his family.

Will Rey play for Euro 2024?

The Albania national team has qualified for the UEFA European Championship 2024. 

They had been able to secure a place in Euro 2016 as well, and in both times, they secured a top-two position in the qualifying group to directly qualify. 

Sylvinho announced his squad for Euro 2024, and Rey made it to the Albania squad as a forward. 

Net worth

Rey Manaj has an estimated net worth of $1 million to $5 million. His current market value is 3 million euros.
