9. Robert Lewandowski – $76 million
Robert Lewandowski seems to have been in sensational form for about five or six seasons in a row right now. The Polish hitman is another who is a pure striker who on his day can put games out of reach for the opposition quickly. This of course happened to extraordinary lengths earlier in the year when Lewandowski scored five goals in an insane nine minute spell against Wolfsburg. It was a once in a lifetime purple patch, but Lewandowski will keep scoring goals as long as he plays the game. With Real Madrid and perhaps even Liverpool considering a bid for the Pole it will be interesting to see where he is playing at the end of January and perhaps this summer.
