#8 – Sergio Agüero ($23.3 Million)
Sergio Aguero hails from the other side of the Atlantic of his teammate Yaya Toure, coming from Argentina to play in Manchester City. Aside from once being married to Giannina Maradona, the daughter of an Argentinian soccer God, he may also be the richest nerd in all of sports.
Aguero has had a very successful senior career, with a combined 163 goals over the past 11 years with Independiente, Atletico Madrid and Manchester City. We should have known that his success was imminent when he won the FIFA Young Player of the Year Award in 2007 to go along with the most goals in the 2007 U-20 World Cup. Aguero isn’t close to done yet, as he is only 26 years old
