This combined XI would set you bet a cool £111m PER YEAR in wages!
All figures quoted are annual salaries from relevant club, i.e. doesn’t include sponsorship deals etc…
Goalkeeper: Iker Casillas (Real Madrid) £5.2m
Spanish international and Real Madrid captain deserves to be the best paid custodian on the planet.
Right-Back: Philipp Lahm (Bayern Munich) £8.6m
Just think how many Oktoberfest pints Mr. Lahm can afford!
Centre-Back: Thiago Silva (PSG) £8.49m
Apparently the Brazilian didn’t want to leave AC Milan to join PSG but we are guessing his wage packet took the edge off the disappointment.
Centre-Back: John Terry (Chelsea) £8.23m
Blues skipper might want to make the most of his current salary as it’s likely he won’t get a new Chelsea deal.
Left-Back: Ashley Cole (Chelsea) £10.7m
Best left-back in world football is fairly paid a princely sum to do so, he’s still got less money than Prince William, a point the future king appears happy to point out in the image above.
