#10. Karim Benzema: £225,000 per week
Karim Benzema is often underrated at Real Madrid as his vast work rate and dedication allow the players around him to work their magic. Real Madrid obviously value him very highly by making him one of the highest paid footballers in the world. The Frenchman has scored a huge amount of goals over his career and has been of key reasons for Madrid’s recent two Champions League wins. There is always a lot of speculation surrounding him but if any club want him to sign for them, then they are also going to have to keep him as one of the highest paid players in the league.
