We all like to talk about footballer’s wages and the huge amount of money that is now in the English Premier League.
Year after year, salaries across the 20 clubs seem to rise with the average top-flight player now taking home around £240,000 each month.
But which superstars are currently the biggest earners in the Premier League?
Here – using data from Spotrac – we reveal the top 5…
A player who always seems to be in the press, Paul Pogba is said to be the fifth highest earner in the Premier League with a salary of over £15million per-year. The Frenchman has been in and out of the Manchester United team this term and is in the final year of his contract. It is looking unlikely he will be handed a new one – especially on these terms – but, with the talent the midfielder possesses, we also wouldn’t be surprised to see him secure a bigger move.
