Brazilian striker Hulk is sitting on top of the charts with his astronomical £320,000-a-week wages at Shanghai SIPG taking that honour.

Former Southampton man Graziano Pelle – now also in China with Shandong Luneng Taishan – comes in second on an eye-watering £290,000.


For context’s sake, that is the same as Manchester United‘s world-record buy Paul Pogba – who cost the Premier League side a whopping £109m in the summer.

They all earn more than arguably the best two players in the world in Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi – who earn £288,000 and £275,000 respectively.
