Jadon Sancho Becomes The Second Highest-Paid Teenager In World Football
Jadon Sancho has catapulted to second place alongside Real Madrid's Vinicius Junior in the highest-paid teenagers in world football.
The Borussia Dortmund star, 19, has agreed to a stunning new deal that will see him pocket £190,000 per week in Germany.
And the Daily Mail has found that Sancho, who will earn £10m a year in his new contract, has become one of the best-paid youngsters in football.
According to the newspaper, only Callum Hudson-Odoi is above him as he edges closer to signing a five-year deal with Chelsea worth up to £200,000 per week.
The Blues winger, 18, has been in talks with the club over a new contract and has returned to training early after being sidelined by an Achilles tendon injury he picked up in April.
Further behind Hudson-Odoi, Sancho and Vinicius is Madrid's highly rated Rodrygo, who arrived at the club this summer and is on a £76,000-a-week contract.
Tottenham Hotspur summer signing Ryan Sessegnon is on £70,000 per week and rounds off the top five.
And Joao Felix, who was Atletico Madrid's marquee signing after they splashed out £113m to sign him from Benfica, came sixth with his £58,000-a-week deal.
