PSG Players Make Up 18 Of Ligue 1's Top 20 Highest Earners

Neymar, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe are unsurprisingly the top earning players in Ligue 1, and it seems that PSG take up 18 of the top 20 spots.

It's hardly new information that PSG spent a ridiculous amount of money, they are backed by an oil rich country after all and have the most expensive players in the football history in their team.

The fact that Neymar, Messi and Mbappe rake in the cash in every week will come as a surprise to no one, even if the Brazilian being above his teammates might not have been as predictable.

It's not just their misfiring front three of ridiculous talent, that fans have recently booed, who get paid a lot though, with most of Mauricio Pochettino's squad earning more than their league rivals.

According to L'Equipe, all but two of the 20 highest earners in France's top tier belong in Pochettino's side, with only Monaco pair Wissam ben Yedder and Cesc Fabregas breaking up the Parisien monopoly.

The wages on the list are monthly wages, meaning that Neymar is getting over €4 million-a-month, and more than a million euros a week!

Not too far behind him is Messi, whose transfer fee was nothing, saving PSG a bit of money but undoubtedly costing them more in wages.

Mbappe is actually quite a way behind his two strike partners, which might have something to do with his probably move to Real Madrid in the summer, when his contract expires.

If the former Monaco forward is feeling short changed then he's certainly hoping to make up for it with his proposed transfer, or at least his mum is.

PSG could get rid of even more money off their wage bill in the summer, with claims that the owners are ready to sell Neymar.

That came in the wake of their latest failure in the Champions League, where Real Madrid came back from two goals down with 30 minutes left of the second leg of the tie, to go through, thanks to Karim Benzema's hat-trick.

Clearly not many sides could afford Neymar's contract, but the 30-year-old has been linked with a move to Newcastle United in the summer.

The Premier League are one of the few teams who could actually afford Neymar's wages, which as we now know are ridiculous!
