1. Iker Casillas

Club: Real Madrid

Wage: £6.3 million-a-year

Iker Casillas is in quite the juxtaposition at Real Madrid. Although he is top of the earners list, he has watched Real Madrid's entire La Liga campaign from the sidelines as Diego Lopez continues to usurp the number one spot.

Although given playing time in the Champions League and cup competitions, Casillas still is not playing enough to deserve such a high wage.

Luckily his cult status at the Bernabeu spares him the roth of the otherwise unforgiving Real Madrid faithful.

He should remain the national first choice goalkeeper for the World Cup, keeping out Reina and De Gea in the process.
