75 Highest Paid Footballers list: Liverpool have 6, Tottenham and Arsenal have 1!

Something doing the rounds a fair bit is the top fifty highest paid footballers list that is all over the web right now. It can be found on the telegraph website, but see below, can it really be accurate?

Other Premier League big spenders include Newcastle, Portsmouth and of course Chelsea and Man United dominate the list.

Darren Bent earns that much! Michael Owen gets more than Totti! Sol Campbell is even on here! Take a look and feel free to a) doubt the validity of this list (as we do too) and b) poke fun at opposing supporters for how much they pay their stars! Excuse the wages being in Euros as it would have worn out the COS calculator convert all of these astronomical sums to pounds!
