    Doesn't Leo have to be our highest paid player? I thought he signed a new contract which has him earning more than Zlatan? Or is this wages + other income?

    The lower the better, doesn't matter how low he is in the salary list, as long as he's happy and motivated at Barca.

    I am sure your owners would offer quintuple his salary, were he showing the slightest inclination of wanting a future at the man city

    Well said. I'm not too happy with Barca having most players in top 50 earners.

    Robinho gets paid more than any of our players. So if this list is based on wage, it's wrong.
