8. David De Gea
Club: Manchester United
Wage: £3.64 million-per-year
Manchester United made David De Gea the most expensive goalkeeper in Premier League history after signing him for £18.9m from Atletico Madrid in 2011.
The then-20-year-old Spaniard was tipped to be the next great goalkeeper but initially struggled to take a hold of life in the Premier League.
However, he has slowly but surely asserted himself at Old Trafford and continues to impress despite Manchester United's struggles this season.
