LONDON - A British study says New York Yankees baseball players are the best paid in global team sport ahead of Real Madrid's footballers.

The "Review of Global Sports Salaries" published Sunday shows that Madrid's biggest rival Barcelona had the third highest salaries, followed by Premier League club Chelsea.

The next seven teams were all from the NBA, with the Dallas Mavericks at No. 5 followed by the Los Angeles Lakers.

The report, compiled by www.sportingintelligence.com, only gave figures in British pounds, with Yankees players listed as having an average salary in 2009 of 4.7 million pounds (currently about $6.95 million). The figure for Madrid was 4.2 million pounds, and 4.07 million pounds for Barcelona.
