3) Jermain Defoe

2014 Guaranteed Salary: $6,180,000

Team: Toronto FC

Position: Striker

Jermain Defoe swapped the Premier League for the MLS this season, another player to link up with Ryan Nelsen in Toronto.

And it is fair to say he has settled in well in his new surroundings with three goals in three games so far this season.

Whether his goal scoring exploits can get him a place on the plain to Brazil remains to be seen but the former Tottenham and Portsmouth striker is clearly enjoying life in North America.
