Premier League Highest Earners List Dominated By Manchester United Stars


Premier League Highest Earners List Dominated By Manchester United Stars

Data has been released which details this season's highest Premier League earners, with the top 10 dominated by Manchester United players.

Over the past decade or so, we have seen wages in football explode, as teams up and down the Premier League look to find a crucial edge over their rivals.

Where once a player earning £200,000 per week was enough to make your jaw drop, it now wouldn't even see them break into this season's top 10 list.

Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Old Trafford this summer was remarkable for a number of reasons, but strictly in financial terms, it was the moment that Premier League wage structures changed forever.

As we will go on to show, second of the list of 2021/22 Premier League earners is Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bryune, whose £400,000 per week salary is £110,000 below that of Ronaldo.

The next three entries are all United players, with David De Gea, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane third, fourth and fifth respectively.

Amid an ongoing row over wages, Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah is well down in 19th, currently earning £200,000 per week - half that of De Bruyne.
