According to the Sunday Times Rich List of 2015, these are the richest football players in the Premier League.
10) Robin van Persie – Net Worth: £25 Million
Prior to Wayne Rooney signing his new contract, Van Persie was the highest earner at Manchester United. Signed by Sir Alex Ferguson to clinch his final title, the Dutchman has struggled to rediscover the former that saw him earn the Premier League Golden Boot during his first season at the club. His £200,000-a-week contract with Manchester United expires at the end of next season, and there has been talk that the club would be willing to sell Van Persie for the right price. According to Franc Football, the Dutchman earns £18.7-million annually due to his high wages and lucrative sponsorship deals with Pepsi and Adidas.
9) David Silva – Net Worth: £26 Million
Silva signed for Manchester City in 2010 and recently extended his contract at the club to keep him in the Premier League until 2019. His new deal will see him earn £170,000-a-week, a figure City are happy to part with to keep their midfield maestro. Silva is sponsored by Adidas and was part of the Spain squad that won the 2008 and 2012 European Championships and the 2010 World Cup.
