5 Players Not Worth Their Big-Money Contracts

This weekend, it's back to domestic football.

It's going to be an interesting round of games, as we get a better look at players who were bought, sold and loaned during the summer months.

But perhaps we'll never get to see some of these players…ever. Maybe they'll never make it off the subs bench. There are a few signings that have already raised eyebrows, like Manchester City's purchase of Martin DemichelisChelsea's last minute swoop for Willian and Fulham's unlikely loanee, Adel Taarabt.

One thing these players all have in common is that none of them are worth their big-money contracts.

I'd like to point out that each player occupies their own bracket of relative wealth on this list, and that each has their own different reason for not being worth the money their club shelled out for them.

The slideshow includes players who were signed in the summer transfer window or players starting their first full season for their club only, it is not an all-encompassing list of the Premier League's most dubious high earners.

Ranked in no particular order, read on to find out why these players were chosen and let us know your thoughts below!
