Footballer salaries revealed

According to The Mail, exiled Wayne Rooney is Manchester United’s highest-paid player on £300,000-a-week – not bad for just warming the bench.

The same could be said of Man City’s in-and-out duo, Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure, who are both earning £240k.

It may come as a surprise to hear that three Premier League clubs towards the bottom of the table are paying upwards of £100,000-a-week to their top player.

According to the Times' figures, one of the most surprising revelations is the wage of Crystal Palace's Christian Benteke, who is being paid an eye-watering £120,000-a-week to help the club stay in the Premier League.
