Sunderland flop Jozy Altidore earns a staggering $4.75million a year salary with Major League Soccer side Toronto FC, it has been revealed.

Here’s the list of top earners’ 2015 base salaries:
1. Kaka (Orlando City) – $6.66million
2. Steven Gerrard (LA Galaxy) – $6.2million
3= Michael Bradley (Toronto FC) – $6million
3= Frank Lampard (New York City) – $6million
5. David Villa (New York City) – $5.61million
6. Sebastian Giovinco (Toronto FC) – $5.6million
