The subject of footballers’ wages, especially those in the Premier League, is one of fascination.
Sponsorship and broadcasting money has flooded into England’s top-flight over the past two decades.
This has seen wages rise season after season and there really sees no sign of that slowing.
Liverpool have the third highest wage-bill in the Premier League behind Manchester City and Manchester United, but who are the Reds’ top-paid players?
Here’s the top-5 highest earners at Anfield (all numbers according to spotrac).
Simply one of the best free transfers in Premier League history. James Milner signed on at Liverpool after leaving Manchester City in 2015. A player who can be relied on to play a number of positions, the former England international has become a key part of a successful side at Anfield. As well as helping them win the 2018 Champions League final, he went one better to win it the following year and looks set to add a third career Premier League title when the season resumes.
