The captain of the Swedish national team is brash and cocky but backs it up on the pitch. He won FIFA’s 2013 Goal of the Year for a bicycle kick against England. With a salary of 15 million euros, he is the highest-paid player on Paris St. Germain, the team where David Beckham finished up his career. He also has a sizeable Volvo deal.
