These are the highest-paid players of the Premier League

The crowded football calendar, battles for television rights, huge sponsorship contracts, salaries and transfer fees into the hundreds of millions. On top of that there are new football formats such as the Nations League or the renewed format of the Champions League. It’s safe to say that commercial and financial interests weigh heavily in modern-day football. It’s not without reason that there has been growing discussion in recent years of a Super League, a league that would replace the regular, national league containing the biggest European football clubs.

Kevin de Bruyne wage

But actually, there is already a Super League: the English Premier League. No league can match that of the English, which is the leader not only in terms of viewing figures and fans, but also financially. And with this financial violence also come big wages. These are the highest-paid players in the Premier League. 

1. Kevin de Bruyne – £400,000 a week

Kevin De Bruyne tops the list. Manchester City’s midfield maestro earns a staggering £400,000 every seven days. With over 100 goals as well as assists, the Belgian had a massive impact on Manchester City dominance in recent years. The absolute architect of Pep Guardiola’s attack.

2. Erling Haaland – £375,000 a week

Erling Haaland, Manchester City’s goal scorer, signed a lucrative five-year deal in 2022, elevating him to one of the Premier League’s top earners. Like De Bruyne, Haaland has been crucial in Pep Guardiola’s side’s ways of thinking and playing, breaking Andy Cole and Alan Shearer’s record of 36 goals in a single Premier League campaign in 2022/23. Haaland’s impact on City’s success is undeniable, earning him every penny.

3. Mohamed Salah – £375,000 a week

On place three we find Mohamed Salah, an outsider in the Manchester influences of this thread. The Liverpool’s prolific forward penned a lucrative three-year deal in 2022, cementing his status as one of the Premier League’s top earners. The Egyptian forward is the Reds’ all-time Premier League top scorer. His impact under Jurgen Klopp is invaluable. His weekly earnings of £350,000 reflect his talismanic role, crucial to Liverpool’s trophy-laden success.

4. Casemiro – £350,000 a week

Manchester United’s bold £60 million acquisition of five times Champions League winner Casemiro sparked scepticism. Whether he is worth the money or not, on the pitch the Brazilian midfielder was an added value in his first season for the Red Devils. When he is not suspended or injured, he has been one of the first names on the team sheet. And in the first season with Casemiro in the ranks, Manchester United won their first cup in six years.

5. Raphael Varane – £350,000 a week

Raphael Varane, the second Manchester United’s player on this list, made a similar move like Casemiro from Real Madrid in 2021. The Frenchman has not brought yet what was expected. Injuries hampered his debut season. Despite a promising partnership with Lisandro Martínez during their Carabao Cup triumph, Varane’s form dipped, which means he is not always sure of a starting place anymore.
