Football has become a costly sport with all the TV deals, corporate sponsorship and government intervention. Transfers have become increasingly expensive and players are paid an insane amount of money to switch their allegiance. However, Some clubs have a strict wage structure while others are underappreciated and intentionally underpaid.
5. Christian Eriksen – £75,000/week

It is plain criminal that a player of Christian Eriksen’s quality, who can create magic on the field with his vision, silky dribbles and impeccable passing, is paid less than half of what he could be making in the footballing world.
Eriksen is paid a meagre £75,000-per-week at Tottenham Hotspur. The Dane has been one of the most crucial cogs of Pochettino’s system that has propelled Spurs to a place of relevance in Europe.
Tottenham Hotspur have a very rigid wage structure and this has often stopped them from being able to keep hold of their best players and if they don’t improve Eriksen’s wages, the player, who could yet hit his peak, he might very well move to another big club that makes him feel more valued.
4. Paulo Dybala – £92,000/week

Paulo Dybala has shown us enough glimpses of brilliance to be dubbed the next Leo Messi. Though he has quite a long way to go, he is easily one of the best attacking midfielders in the game right now.
Dybala has, in fact, played a great role in Juventus dominating the Serie A and going guns blazing in the Champions League over the last few years. That is why it is disappointing that Dybala earns just £92,000 a week.
It was rumoured earlier this year that Paulo Dybala will be given a contract extension that will see his wages rise to £120,000 a week but even that would keep him on this list, to say the least.
3. Harry Kane – £100,000/week
Harry Kane, simply put, is one of the very best strikers in the world. He has scored more than 25 goals in the Premier League for 3 seasons running! Those are ridiculously amazing returns.
