10. Sergio Busquets $171,000
Sergio Busquets is that rarest of players, a defensive minded individual in the Barcelona team. Sometimes you look at Barca play and wonder exactly what it is that Busrquets does, exactly what makes him worth the money. Taking him out of the team however gives Barca an unbalanced look and shows defensive frailties that are just not there when he is in the lineup. It may be somewhat telling that when Luis Enrique was asked in a recent interview which footballer he would most like to be his answer was the vastly underrated Busquets. His greatest assets on the field are his tireless work ethic and exceptional positional sense and reading of the game. That is why he is worth this much money.
