5. Paul Pogba

Flamboyant Frenchman sees finances fly. Yes, there could not be a list in Premier League football without mentioning the enigmatic midfielder. Even with monumental amounts spent on hair-dye, he is included.

The France midfielder is worth £25m, he has made £10m this year. An estimated £290,000-a-week is sure to keep his cash-pile increasing.

4. Theo Walcott

Former Arsenal and England winger Theo Walcott is a slightly surprising inclusion. He has not become poor since he left London for Merseyside.

During his time with Arsenal he made about £24m, adding roughly £2m from Everton recently. Signing for the Gunners in 2006, the 29-year-old has been making millions a year, for 10 years.

3. Mesut Ozil

German international Ozil is a good negotiator. Not a particular quick one; yet he got his £350,000 salary in the end.

Winning the World Cup is the 27-year-old’s standout CV moment, naturally. It is also significant in advertising, sponsorship and wage terms. In his time as a ‘top-pro’, Ozil has made £28m.

2. Eden Hazard

Belgian starlet Hazard may not be at Stamford Bridge next season. Chelsea have failed to guarantee Champions League football for 2018/19. While he has been there though, he has amassed a fortune of £32m.

I expect Real Madrid to offer him an extra £100,000 improvement on his already quarter-of-a-million weekly haul.

1. Sergio Aguero

The richest player in the Premier League is the Argentinian goalscorer-extraordinaire. A whopping £48m saw him clinch top-spot.

Announcing his departure from Manchester City in 2020 won’t stop his earning capacity due to his training ethic. Moving back to Argentina will consequently earn him rather less than the lucrative China.

Did any entries surprise you? Especially since Andy Carroll just missed out on the richest list with a fortune of £17m.
