#2. Thibaut Courtois – £6.25 million
One of the best young goalkeepers in the world is also one of the highest paid. Thibaut Courtois finally appeared for Chelsea in 2014 after a number of seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid. The Belgian is just 24 years old but has already won the Europa League, played in the Champions League final, and won league titles in three different countries. There aren’t many better goalkeepers in the air than Courtois and the Belgian could be first choice for club and country for a decade. The 24 year-old currently earns £6.25 million per year.
