Since Cristiano Ronaldo has signed a contract
extension with Real Madrid, voices are going round of how this beautiful game
is hampered by the ugly face of money. Rooney being the latest in the list to
sign a contract extension cannot make the cut in this compilation which shows
you how far the game has gone when it comes to money.
For a player to start his career from a club that does not
exist now, Yaya Toure is worth every penny of the money that he earns now. He
has been the most consistent player for Manchester City this season and if City
are going to upturn Chelsea in the title race, this is certainly a player they
need to remain on the pitch for the most of next two months.
Yaya Toure has played club football in 5 countries with
England 6th in the list.
With 13 goals and 5 assists so far this season in the Premier League, Yaya Toure is a prime example that hard work has definitely been the
key to success in his case. He earns around 170k a week.
Eden Hazard and Fernando Torres:
With one player looking past his prime in Fernando Torres,
Eden Hazard is exactly the opposite as the Belgian is currently hitting his
best form since joining Chelseaby contributing with a total of 7 assists and
12 goals this season. Both of them earns around 185k a week.
Lampard and Luis Suarez:
From a villain to a magician, Luis Suarez is the prime
example of why Liverpool is this high in the PL table. They not only have
exceeded the expectations of the other teams, but also of their fans as they
are sitting 2nd in the league. On the other hand, nearly a finished
article, Lampard earns the same money as Luis Suarez. Both of them earns around
200k a week
“The game’s gone mad”. These were the comments
offered by Sir Alex when he saw his side got beaten in the race to sign the
Brazilian wonder kid. However the performances shown by the 19 year old has
limited game time for fellow experienced players like Pastore, which shows that
he is worth the money barrier that was exploded by PSG.
paying €45 million for a 19-year-old boy you have to say the game's gone
mad." Sir Alex on Lucas Moura transfer fee.
Lucas Moura earns more than any player did at his
age in the history of football by getting MERE
205k a week.
6. Radamel Falcao:
If Falcao huge money transfer was a shock for
you, his wages can cause a headache. Since moving to a side that has just been
promoted to French League, Falcao is earning a money twice more than what he
was earning at his former club Athletico Madrid.
had nearly signed for Chelsea but 8.5million pounds a year salary by Monaco per
year prompted the U-turn.
He gets paid a handsome salary of around 268k a
5. Edinson Cavani:
If there is one team that has benefitted the most
by selling its players, it is Napoli. The former Liverpool boss has enjoyed
excessively of the sale outs of star player like Cavani by bringing in new
players like Higuain who have disturbed the goal scoring charts.
Although this man has been overshadowed by the
noisy Swede on his counterpart, he is just 2nd to his fellow team
mate in the goal scoring charts with 14 goals so far. He stands 5th
with 288k a week.
4. Gareth Bale:
Gareth bale was surrounded by a lot of criticism
following his mega money move from Tottenham, but his performances for the LOS
BLANCOS has silenced the critics. In the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo, the
Welsh International has coped well with his team mates, and he is one of the
main reason why Real Madrid is sitting at top of La Liga this season. He earns
around 300k a week
3. Zlatan Ibrahimovich:
Although the Swede is out of the World Cup thanks
to another man in our list, he would simply have many other things to do thanks
to the money his earning at the Qatar group owned PSG. He can be described as
the only player whose behavior on and off the pitch shows the media why he is
best even at an age of 33. He earns around 418k a week, after averaging nearly
a goal per game for the French Champions this season.
2. Lionel Messi:
This season hasn’t been the most industrious for
Messi as his injury allowed Ronaldo to escalate above him, not only on his pay
scale but also by grabbing the Ballon D’Or award. He gets around 500k a
week, although with the same amount of money he was the top paid last year, but
Ronaldo contract deseeded him from being on the number one spot.
From the one man army in the Portugal route towards
the world cup qualification, to the Ballon D’Or winner this season, Cristiano
Ronaldo has got every right to prove he is the man best suited to being the top
paid player in the world. He will earn 155million euros over the span of next
five years thanks to his contract extension, which makes him the highest paid
footballer in the world.
