Nasri’s big money move to City made sure that his wages soared up. He currently earns £140k per week and rounds off the top 10 list.
He scored a goal on the last day of the 2013-14 campaign to help his team win the league.
#9 John Terry (Chelsea)
At the age of 33, Chelsea’s ‘Captain, Leader and Legend’ John Terry is the premier league’s highest paid defender.
He was back to his old self in the previous campaign and would be looking to carry on that form as long as possible.
He currently earns £150k per week.
#8 Mesut Ozil (Arsenal)
Ozil is currently ranked at number 8 in the list of highest paid players in the league with a salary of £160k per week. Arsenal’s future hopes are pinned on this man and that’s precisely why they made him their costliest player.
#7 Fernando Torres (Chelsea)
Is Torres justifying the money he currently earns at his club? That can always be debated, but for now, the Spanish striker earns £175k per week.
#6 Eden Hazard (Chelsea)
The man who is tipped to be a future Ballon d’Or winner is Chelsea’s highest paid player. He currently earns £185k per week, and Chelsea may have to breach the £200k mark if they intend to keep him out of PSG’s reach.
#5 Luis Suarez (Liverpool)
Your star players need to be kept happy. And Liverpool kept their star man Suarez happy by handing him a £200k per week contract.
That contract extension put an end to all the speculation surrounding his immediate future and he brought Liverpool back in to the Champions League after a five year hiatus.
#4 Robin Van Persie (Manchester United)
Van Persie kicks off the Manchester domination on the list of highest paid players in the premier league.
He earns £200k per week and proved his worth by helping United clinch their historic 20th league title in 2013.
#3 Yaya Toure (Manchester City)
Yaya Toure also earns a staggering £200k per week and he isn’t even the highest paid player in the squad. Yaya was without a doubt City’s best player of the 2013-14 campaign which saw them win the league title twice in the span of three years.
Barcelona might be kicking themselves now for letting him go.
#2 Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)
Manchester City on their part have made their number 1 striker the highest paid player in the squad. Aguero earns £220k a week, and if he keeps giving the team moments like the stoppage time winner which won them the title in 2012, then surely his purse will keep getting bigger.
#1 Wayne Rooney (Manchester United)
After all the confusion surrounding Rooney’s proposed move to Chelsea early in the season, Manchester United made sure they held on to their star man by making him sign a new five year contract worth £300k a week.
