2014-15 the story of the Premiership season - so far!

Over £835 million was spent on transfers this summer, making every Guinness world record book obsolete. (Don't even bother trying to get a refund. It's a waste of time) The most eye-catching transfer was Angel Di Maria's move to Manchester United for what some economists have described as "quite a lot of money", or in layman's terms "£59.7 million." The Argentine is rumoured to be on around £200,000 per week, which raises the age old question:

Do footballers earn too much money?

Wages: £200,000 per week.

Tax: £89,733.21 per week

National Insurance: £4,062.14 per week

Rent: With house prices continually rising, it is very difficult for young people to get on the property ladder. Most footballers are young men in their 20s, and so, they are forced to rent. - £171 per week (Even more in London)

Utilities: Gas, electric, water etc. - £50 per week

Food: Breakfast, dinner, snacks. (Lunch will usually be provided for free at the training ground) - £40 per week

Video Streaming Services: Bling culture is an integral part of football. Many players will subscribe to both Netflix AND Amazon Prime as a way to brag about their status as wealthy young men. - £2.76 per week

Dating: Socialising romantically is an important part of life. All footballers have Orange (EE) phones, which means they are able to utilise their Orange Wednesday code. As it is currently the 21st century, one person should pay for the cinema and the other will pay for the pizza. As a gesture of goodwill, the footballer will usually offer to pay for the most expensive one. - £10
10,000 barrels of crude oil: Oil is a valuable resource. - £620,000

Total:  £-512071.11

Conclusion: Footballers are not paid enough. Even the highest earners are losing over £500,000 a week. Read the full article at 888Sport here.
