Football News

Wages in football is a controversial and divisive topic. The general consensus is that, yes, footballers are paid far too much money. But supply and demand necessitates that those best at their jobs will earn the most money. It happens in all walks of life - and football is no different.

The world’s biggest football clubs have the financial resources to offer the best players the most lucrative contracts. Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Barcelona and Real Madrid are five of the Europe’s richest clubs who are all currently in the process of strengthening their respective squads ahead of the 2014/15 campaign.

In this article, we’ve listed five transfer targets for the four aforementioned clubs and made a case as to why they’re worth shelling out big weekly wages on.

Di Maria and Suarez

Reports this morning claim that Manchester United have offered Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria a massive £150,000-a-week contract to come to Old Trafford. In fairness, that’s about the standard weekly wage for your average first-class player these days. Barcelona, for example, have agreed to pay former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez £140,000-a-week.

But we believe the five targets on this list deserve - in a sense - to be paid over that figure by their prospective new employers this summer.
