The Premier League is one of the most exciting Leagues in the world. Players from the biggest clubs in England’s top league such as Chelsea, Man United, and Liverpool are paid well and earn the highest salaries around.
With each club receiving hundreds of millions in television money, Premier League footballers are extremely well-paid and most of Europe’s highest-paid footballers ply their trade in England.
As the 2022/23 season enters its match week 4 this weekend, with the help of data collected from Capology, we have ranked players with the highest weekly wages in the League below.
1. Cristiano Ronaldo (Man Utd, £515k)
Ronaldo arrived at Man United from Juventus in a shock last-minute transfer. He is regarded as the best of all time alongside Lionel Messi.
Having been reunited with his former club where he rose to greatness before transferring to Real Madrid obviously Ronaldo 37, it goes without saying was to be among the big earner at United.
He enjoys £515k per week, and with rumours surrounding his desire to leave the club, it is a matter of wait and see.
2. Kevin de Bruyne (Man City, £400k)
The Belgian international is paid £400k per week, De Bruyne boasts quality and creativity and is considered one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.
He was named Premier League Player of the Season for 21-22.
=3. Erling Haaland (Man City, £375k)
Erling Haaland signed for Manchester City from Dortmund this summer having impressed in the German club and with Norway close up to the World Cup qualification.
Haaland although produced minimal results as per expectations of fans in the community shield and pre-season has since bagged three goals in the League and looks fit to battle for the Golden boot this season.
He is at £375k a week.
=3. David de Gea (Man Utd, £375k)
The Spanish international was electrifying last season and was the only outstanding player together with Ronaldo in a Man United team that was dysfunctional.
David de Gea is the highest paid among goalkeepers with his fellow countryman, Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga coming second in the list of goalkeepers with £150k.
=5. Jadon Sancho (Man Utd, £350k)
The Manchester United winger did not have a fruitful season after arriving at Old Trafford but he looks to fit this season under the tutelage of Erik Ten Hag.
Jadon Sancho scored an ice-cold finish against bitter rivals Liverpool and he hopes moving forward United will hold on to the momentum.
Sancho was magnificent during United’s pre-season tour and is expected to live up to his Dortmund form this season.
=5. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool, £350k)
There’s no doubt about Mohamed Salah, He has been one of the best players and after contract negotiations that threatened to stall he penned down a new deal that saw him become Liverpool’s highest earner in history.
He is at £350k per week
7. Raphael Varane (Man Utd, £340k)
Varane’s quality has never been in doubt, nobody has four Champions League gold medals alongside winning the World Cup without being able to kick a ball straight. But injuries meant his first season at United was distinctly unmemorable.
But his first appearance alongside Lisandro Martinez as United beat Liverpool 2-1 was very promising indeed. There’s time yet for his sizeable wages to look like money well spent.
8. Raheem Sterling (Chelsea, £325k)
It’s no surprise that Chelsea are paying Sterling £325,000 a week; the summer signing from City represents an upgrade on their existing forward options and is one of the best attackers around.
He’s yet to open his account for the Blues but we’re sure it won’t be long.
