Earning 220,000 pounds per week, Toure doesn’t make as much as some of the other stars on this list, and he’s aware of it. Recent reports have said that Toure has threatened to leave Manchester City if he doesn’t get more money. He signed a new four-year deal with the team last year, and has said he’ll wait until after the World Cup to make any big decisions.
