5. Victor Valdes
Wage: £5 million-a-year
Victor Valdes may well have played his last game for Barcelona after being ruled out of action for seven month with anterior cruciate ligament damage in his knee.
He is certain to miss the World Cup and may never play for Barca again as his contract expires at the end of the season.
However, Barcelona's transfer ban may force the club to offer Valdes even more money to convince him to stay a few more years.
With 19 major trophies under his belt at the Nou Camp, no one can blame the Spanish shot-stopper for seeing a fresh challenge.
