Discover the Premier League’s Top Five Highest Paid Players Revealed by L’Equipe
French publication L’Equipe has recently revealed the top-five highest-earning players in the Premier League along with their corresponding salaries, including Erling Haaland’s staggering bonuses, which have also been highlighted in the report.
1. Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) – £1.7 Million Monthly Salary
Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne tops the list of the highest earners in England’s top flight, grossing £1.7 million a month (£425,000 a week). The Belgian famously commissioned a data firm to break down in finite detail his value to Pep Guardiola’s team, becoming the Premier League’s best-paid player thanks to the detailed analysis. With six goals and 21 assists in 35 games across all competitions this season, De Bruyne’s importance to Manchester City has never been in doubt.
2. Erling Haaland (Manchester United) and David De Gea (Manchester United) – £1.609 Million Monthly Salary
Both Haaland and De Gea earn £1.609 million a month, equating to £402,250 a week, placing them at a tie for the second-highest earners in the Premier League. However, Haaland can earn a ridiculous amount of money through bonuses, which allows him to more-than double his wages to £865,000 a week when scoring at the rate he has so far this season, including a mind-boggling 28 goals in 26 games in the Premier League alone.
3. Mo Salah (Liverpool) – £1.495 Million Monthly Salary
Mo Salah takes the fourth spot on the list, taking home £1.495 million a month (£373,750 a week) at Liverpool, following the bumper contract he signed towards the end of the 2021/22 campaign. While Liverpool have struggled this season, Salah’s performance has been one of the few saving graces, with 21 goals in 38 games.
4. Jadon Sancho (Manchester United) – £373,750 Weekly Salary
Finally, De Gea’s Manchester United team-mate Jadon Sancho sneaks into the top five, earning a reported £373,750 a week. Manchester United went all out to secure the winger’s signature, splashing a further £73 million on him during the summer of 2021. Although the move hasn’t quite worked out so far, there are promising signs Sancho will be able to eventually turn it around and prove his worth to the club under Erik ten Hag’s tutelage.
While the salaries earned by Premier League players are astronomical, they still fall far short of the best-paid footballers in the world, which include Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, and Messi, among others.
