Premier League highest wages

The players from Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Arsenal are always the highest-paid in the Premier League.

Premier League highest wages

It’s little wonder that some European clubs have begun to snidely refer to the Premier League as the ESL – the English Super League.

The financial might of England’s top-flight dwarfs the rest of the continent. Napoli won Serie A at a canter last season, playing brilliant, beguiling football that also carried them to the Champions League semi-finals.

Yet, Luciano Spalletti’s squad had a lower wage bill than Leicester City – who couldn’t even avoid Premier League relegation.

Among this upper echelon of economic dominance are some of the world’s best-paid footballers. However, not everyone in this gold-lined group entirely represents value for money.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Manchester City, like every other club, was in a financial hole, even though it had a lot of money and some people didn’t like it.

But Kevin De Bruyne was able to talk City into making him the best-paid player in the Premier League during this slump. Using a data company’s services, De Bruyne’s case for a 30% raise was very convincing.

At first, De Bruyne’s agent contacted Analytics FC to find out if City would still be the best club for De Bruyne. Once the projections showed that they were always in the running for the Champions League, the company looked at De Bruyne’s skills, weaknesses, and overall effect on the team.

Erling Haaland is thought to have a slightly lower base pay (£375,000 per week) than his teammate (£400,000 per week), but he makes up for it with a lot of bonuses.

The Daily Mail says that Haaland gets a total of £865,000 every Friday when he hits “almost guaranteed” appearance-based goals.

Mohamed Salah finally signed a huge new deal with Liverpool in the summer of 2022. He will earn an estimated £18.2 million per year, making him the highest-paid player in the club’s history.

The negotiations were long and difficult. At that rate, Salah makes £440,000 every nine days, which is how much Liverpool paid for the legendary Kenny Dalglish.
