Six goalkeepers in the Premier League will earn more than Andre Onana as full list emerges

Manchester United are reportedly advancing in a deal to bring Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana to Old Trafford.
Last week, it was confirmed that David de Gea will leave United after a 12-year-long career as a Red Devil.
In the midst of the uncertainty surrounding De Gea’s future, United had already started to look for a new number one behind the scenes.
It has been widely reported that Erik ten Hag is a huge fan of Inter’s Onana, with both clubs set to finalise a deal this week.
According to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, United are set to offer the 27-year-old a deal worth £5.5-6 million per year, plus bonuses.
This means that the goalkeeper is set to take home a weekly wage of £115,000.
If the figures are true, Onana will become the seventh-highest-earning goalkeeper in the Premier League.
According to Capology, Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga and Liverpool’s Alisson Becker are the highest earners goalkeepers in the top flight as they rack up £150,000 per week.
In third place in Everton’s England number one Jordan Pickford, who has a weekly wage of £125,000. Pickford is followed by fellow Englishman and Arsenal stopper Aaron Ramsdale, who earns £120,000 each week.
Aston Villa’s World Cup winner Emiliano Martinez and West Ham backup Alphonse Areola are both also taking home a weekly wage of £120,000.
Onana will slot in behind the above-mentioned goalkeepers with his reported wage of £115,000 per week, meaning he earns more than Manchester City’s treble-winning keeper Ederson, who is believed to make £100,000 per week.
Prior to his departure, De Gea was a long way clear as the highest-earning goalkeeper in the Premier League with a huge reported weekly wage of £375,000.
Upon announcing his exit, De Gea wrote: “I just wanted to send this farewell message to all Manchester United supporters.
“It’s been an unforgettable and successful period since I came here. I didn’t think from leaving Madrid as a young boy we would achieve what we did together.”
He added: “Now, it’s the right time to undertake a new challenge, to push myself again in new surroundings. Manchester will always be in my heart, Manchester has shaped me and will never leave me. We’ve seen it all.”
