Chelsea are reportedly paying £25,000-a-week to new signing Michael Ballack for his image rights alone. The German superstar recently arrived on a free transfer at Stamford Bridge but his three-year contract is costing the Blues a staggering £130,000-a-week. But The Mirror claim a significent portion of his salary is earnt just by allowing Chelsea to use his name.The paper also says that Ballack will receive a multi-million payout if the west Londoners decide to exercise the option of a 12-month extension to his contract.

but the deal was a part exchange deal with del horno. This looks a more advanced development though.
