#2 Bastian Schweinsteiger – 275k Per Week
The German legend arrived a few months ago at Manchester United and he has not come cheap. Even though he is nearing the end of his career, it is still believed that he will be able to live up to people’s expectations in addition to that of his wage. Upon arrival he is the penultimate player who earns the most in the Premiership today. PREVIEW FOR #1: Even though he has recently admitted his dip in form lately, Wayne Rooney is still the number one bread winner within the Premier League. His astronomical sum has risen every year to keep him playing at Old Trafford, and some are beginning to think his wage now outweighs his abilities.
