2. Manuel Neuer

Club: Bayern Munich

Wage: £5.6 million-a-year

No one can rival Manuel Neuer for presence between the sticks. When a player lines up to take a penalty they have a huge target to hit. That target shrinks significantly when the Bayern Munich goalkeeper stands in their way.

Playing for the best club in the world, Neuer was always likely to be high up on the list. He has performed exceptionally for Bayern Munich as they continue to dominate the European and domestic stage. They are on course for an unheard of double treble this season.
