#10 Michael Owen – $68 Million
The poster boy of Liverpool in the early 2000’s , Michael Owen was widely regarded as the most outrageously talented English footballer of his generation, cementing that reputation with a Ballon D’or award in 2001. He scored countless vital goals to keep Liverpool in contention for the European places throughout the years and eventually earned a big money move to Real Madrid. While his playing career went on a continuous decline ever since his ill-fated transfer, Owen managed to set up a successful career as a full time pundit for BT Sport. He also doubles as a commentator, although internet trolls have a field day making fun of his repetitive and obvious commentary.
