That is their market value.
Football and their players 'income'cannot be compared in any way to other professional sports. They are in a league (sic) of their own.

Several years ago, I remember that 80k was minimum for a bog standard PL rugby player and up to 150k for top say 100. No doubt if they get a 3 year contract this could be variable. If, however, they get to international levels, vast amounts can be made an salted away for their retirement. Isn't it still everytime they play they get 10k, and they get a 100k annual retainer for being in the EPS??? I also know but no, the figures that a Lions Tour can be rewarded quite handsomely?

Sorry if these figures cause consternation amongst some lurkers! Always the way with discussion of how much someone gets paid, there is always some idiot who gets more than you, and some sucker who didn't or doesn't know.
