Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore believes top players could earn £200,000 a week by the end of the decade.
Scudamore told the Daily Express: "Is there no end to the money going up? I don't think so. Football provides entertainment. People want to watch it.
"It has been like that for the 16 years since the Premiership began."
"I can see the day when one or two are earning £200,000 a week but only the biggest superstars.
"The average now is just under £19,000 a week which means some are earning under £10,000 a week."
