France's top division, Ligue 1, boasts some of football's highest-paid players, and it's no surprise that PSG factors heavily into the top 30 earners in the league, which was reported on Tuesday by L'Equipe.

Brazil star Neymar, who cost a world-record-shattering fee for PSG to pry from Barcelona is the league's best-paid player by far, followed by a slew of his teammates. 

The attacker left Barcelona to join Paris Saint-Germain for a whopping £198m last summer, completing football's biggest-ever deal to become the face of a franchise, having gotten tired of operating in Lionel Messi's shadow.

The next seven players on the list (h/t @stephdarmani) are also from PSG, with Monaco's Radamel Falcao breaking it up a bit lower.

As revealed by this list, 12 of Ligue 1's 13 highest-paid stars play for PSG. But it really isn't any shock, given the team's financial backing and clout in the market. 

Seven of them hail from Marseille, meanwhile, while five ply their trade at Monaco. Lyon also have four of the league's highest earners in their employ. 

The only player who isn't contracted to one of the aforementioned is former Liverpool forward Mario Balotelli, who plays for OGC Nice.
