Top 5 highest paid forwards in the Premier League
Three Manchester United forwards make this rich list
The English Premier League is one of the most marketable leagues, apart from being one of the very best in the world. It boasts some of the finest players in the world in every position.
In any team, the forwards are perhaps the most important factor because they create and score goals that decide the outcome of a game. No wonder they dominate the lists of highest paid players in any generation.
The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi who are considered as the greatest forwards at the moment, play in the La Liga. But, that doesn't mean the Premier League has any scarcity of top-quality strikers. The English top-tier also boasts some of the finest strikers of this generation and thanks to the wealth of the English clubs, their contributions are weighed equally well in terms of money.
That being said, let's have a look at the top 5 highest paid forwards in the English Premier League.
#5 Eden Hazard (£220,000 per week)
Belgian winger Eden Hazard moved to Chelsea in a £32 million deal from French club Lille in 2012. Since his arrival in England, he has grown into one of the best players in the world, let alone the league.
Eden Hazard currently earns £220,000 per week at Stamford Bridge. Playing on the left, the Chelsea speedster is excellent at cutting inside and creating chances for his teammates to score goals. Also, he has superb dribbling abilities which enable him to get past opponents with ease.
His exploits haven't gone unnoticed since Spanish giants Real Madrid are hell-bent on signing him as a replacement for Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. No doubt he has what it takes to be a Los Blancos player, but it definitely won't be easy to fill the mighty boots of CR7 at the Bernabeu.
