Experienced goalkeeper Petr Cech is moving to Arsenal on a £10.9m deal after spending 11 seasons with a different Premier League powerhouse.
Cech has spent his final season at Chelsea as their backup goalie after being benched in favor of Thibaut Courtois.
The 33-year-old’s switch to Arsenal has notably made Chelsea fans upset, but it has also put him in company with some of the most historic deals for goalkeepers.
Here are the 12 highest-paid goalies in football history.
12) Simon Mignolet – Liverpool – £9m
Transfer fee according to BBC
Mignolet signed a five-year deal with Liverpool in 2013, and he had a steady run as Liverpool’s starter as he made 53 consecutive starts until being benched in December 2014 for Brad Jones. Mignolet recovered from his benching after Jones was injured and got his performance back on track, although his season ended in disappointing fashion as Liverpool lost their final game, 6-1.
11) Samir Handanovic – Inter Milan – £9m
Transfer fee according to Goal
The Slovenia international joined Inter Milan in 2012 and has spent the last three seasons with them while making 104 appearances in Serie A matches.
