Tom Brady has sacrificed at least $60 million in his career with discount contracts to keep the Patriots competitive

  Tom Brady has sacrificed at least $60 million in his career with discount contracts to keep the Patriots competitive Maddie Meyer/Getty Tom Brady has made $197 million over the course of his career, but he could have made more. Brady has frequently taken contract extensions and restructured his deals to help the New England Patriots address other spots on the roster, giving up at least $60 million over the course of his career.We conservatively calculated what Brady might have earned in his career if he had signed a new deal equal to the going rate for top quarterback contracts throughout his career. The conservative estimate put his contract discounts at $60 million, but could have been closer to $100 million.

But there were also several breakout performances at this tournament, from young players, or those who were just looking for a chance and seized it. Here are five players who earned massive contracts at this World Cup and broke out in a big way.

There were so many wonderful performances this World Cup, and plenty from players who are already established as the world’s best. But there were also several breakout performances at this tournament, from young players, or those who were just looking for a chance ... and seized it.

Here are five players who earned massive contracts at this World Cup and broke out in a big way.

1. Denis Cheryshev

Cheryshev was one of the big breakout stars of this World Cup after an unfortunate injury to Alan Dzagoev only minutes into the first match of the tournament forced Russia manager Stanislav Cherchesov to bring in Cheryshev off the bench. That decision led to an absolutely shining performance from Cheryshev throughout the tournament, scoring four goals and helping drive Russia all the way to the quarter-finals before the hosts were knocked out.

Steinbrenner: Yankees have 'considerable' money to spend at trade deadline

  Steinbrenner: Yankees have 'considerable' money to spend at trade deadline The New York Yankees did an excellent job of managing their payroll leading into the season, allowing them to potentially add some significant contracts prior to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. "I would have to see where we are, who the person is, how badly that position needs help, so to speak, but I will say, we have a considerable amount of money to spend and I'm not averse to spending it," Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner told YES Network on Monday. "A considerable amount even staying under (the threshold). We've got some options there, flexibility.

Who are the other footballers with big salaries ? His new contract will earn him as much as £275,000 a week after tax. That is €20 million a year (£14. 5 million) and this is after tax numbers making him second highest paid player in the world behind Cristiano Ronaldo.

Cheryshev didn’t have the best season for Villarreal, mostly working as a substitute, but this World Cup showed just how good he can be under the right circumstances.

2. Kylian Mbappe

An odd choice, sure. Mbappe, pre-tournament, was already valued as one of the most expensive players in the world. But it says something about his World Cup performance that he’s only increased his value over the last few weeks. That’s how brilliant Mbappe has been, leading France’s attack at just 19 years old to a place in a World Cup final.

Mbappe has scored a trio of goals in this World Cup, but he’s also shown off an absolutely elite ability to run effectively, both with and without the ball. While “running effectively” may sound odd considering just how much running there is in this sport, just watch how Mbappe runs — the angles he picks and the timing on when he starts his runs or changes direction consistently leaves defenders off-balance if not completely lost. Mbappe’s runs are such an effective playmaking tool on their own that it’s almost unfair that he’s also really really good with the ball at his feet, whether shooting or passing.

Watch how close Fowler came to a hole-in-one in Scotland

  Watch how close Fowler came to a hole-in-one in Scotland Rickie Fowler is looking sharp with a week left until The Open Championship.Fowler carded a 6-under par 64 on Thursday, and he was unlucky to not post two ultra-low scores on his card Friday. At the par-3 12th hole, Fowler placed his ball perfectly on the front of the green from 173 yards and was inches away from recording an ace.

3. Christian Cueva

Christian Cueva may best be remembered at the 2018 World Cup for his stunning penalty miss against Denmark, but that one low moment should not undercut what was an incredible performance for the 26-year-old Peruvian. Cueva currently plays for Sao Paolo in Brazil, but with that creativity and passing ability, it’s all but certain that bigger European clubs will come calling soon. (Though he’s also being linked to a move to MLS?)

4. Harry Maguire

The Leicester City defender was not thought of as a strong feature of the England squad when it was announced for the World Cup, but the end result showed how much quality the young player has. He was a consistently strong defensive presence for the Three Lions all the way through the tournament to their eventual semi-final exit, and his headed goal against Sweden showed how effective he can be on set pieces as well.

William Nylander is the last player who will bite into the Leafs cap space

  William Nylander is the last player who will bite into the Leafs cap space Or so it seems right now. How much will be left over when his contract is signed in case the Leafs want to add another player? We last looked at the full list of Maple Leafs cap hits before the draft. Since then, much has changed, including some trades, some signings, and with about two months to go before the start of training camp, the Leafs have enough players signed at all positions to put a 23-man roster together. Only the cap hits of the 23-man roster count against the cap, along with some odds and ends of extras. The only player without a contract is William Nylander. By making some assumptions about who is likely to be on the roster/sitting as extra players in the pressbox, this is what the salary cap picture looks like: The bottom line, $12 million and change, is much more than enough to contain Nylander’s contract. Bear in mind that the Leafs can spend that full $12 million, then assign Nathan Horton to LTIR, and have a pool of $5.3 million to use to add even more players. The arguments for and against doing that largely revolve around ensuring that performance bonuses that might be earned this season get absorbed by this season’s salary cap and don’t roll over into 2019-2020. Bonuses cannot be absorbed by the LTIR pool, so to avoid a bonus carryover again, the Leafs would have to stay under the cap with Horton’s salary figured in, and in addition, have the cap space at the end of the year to cover those bonuses.

Maguire certainly had a good enough season for Leicester this season, but after Maguire showed just how good he can be at the international level, bigger clubs will certainly be looking at him.

5. Hirving Lozano

Hirving “Chucky” Lozano not only had the best nickname at the 2018 World Cup, he also had one of the true breakout performances, as the 22-year-old Mexico star led his country to thrilling wins over Germany and South Korea before eventually falling to Brazil in the Round of 16. Lozano plays club ball for PSV, and had a big year for them this past season in the Eredivisie. Combine that with this tournament performance, and the giants of Europe are going to be calling soon.

Honorable Mention: Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo already got a big-money move, making a shocking transfer from Real Madrid to Juventus after Portugal were eliminated from the World Cup. But he certainly put on a good showing during his time in the World Cup, tying Cheryshev and Romelu Lukaku for the second-most goals in the competition with four. It was arguably Ronaldo’s best World Cup showing in his storied career, though if it’s his last he’ll still be disappointed to not have gotten his country past the round of 16.
