#3 Yaya Toure – 240k Per Week
A transfer fee of £24 million, a five year deal and a huge weekly pay packet saw Yaya transferring from Barcelona in 2010. He has mainly played in midfield and is renowned for his shot power and pace. Last season saw rumors that the Ivorian was unhappy playing at Manchester City. How anybody could be upset with 240K a week begs belief. PREVIEW FOR #2: 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.
