It also takes a look at the best-paid players in the Premier League such as Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Eden Hazard who all earn well over £14m each year and highlights the eye-watering figures involved in modern day transfers with Angel Di Maria’s £59.7m move to Manchester United the highest transfer fee paid by a British club to date.
