5. David De Gea earns £375,000.
Because of how crucial he is to Manchester United, David de Gea signed a £375,000 per week contract in 2019 that includes a four-year term with a season-long option.
Concerned that the goalkeeper has been linked to Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United has made De Gea a sizable offer to lock down his future.
The 31-year-old has had mixed success since joining, but in the 2021–2022 campaign, he was voted the team’s Player of the Year for the fourth time.
4. Erling Haaland, who earns £375,000.
Since arriving with Manchester City this summer, Erling Haaland has climbed immediately into the top five in the Premier League.
After Manchester City outbid Borussia Dortmund for his services and signed him for £375,000 per week, Haaland has emerged as one of the most sought-after prospects in European football.
The 21-year-old is anticipated to make his Bundesliga debut the following season after tallying 62 goals in 67 league games over his two and a half years at Dortmund.
The champions of the Premier League will be unbeatable if he takes a break.
3. Kevin De Bruyne makes £385k each week.
At £385,000 per week under Haaland’s contract, Kevin De Bruyne is the Manchester City player making the highest salary.
The PFA Player of the Year for the 2019–20 and 2020–21 seasons was De Bruyne, who has recently been voted the Premier League’s Player of the Year.
The four-time Premier League champion at the Etihad will try to build on his legendary contributions to the team the following season.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo makes £385,000 weekly.
Last summer, Cristiano Ronaldo returned to the club at Old Trafford for £385,000 a week, making him the highest-paid player for United.
The Red Devils have had a dismal season, finishing sixth in the Champions League, despite Ronaldo’s comeback seeing them score 24 goals across all competitions.
1. Mohamed Salah earns £400,000 weekly.
With a club-record salary of £400,000 per week under his new contract, Mohamed Salah of Liverpool will become the highest-paid player in the Premier League.
Last season, he earned three Premier League Golden Boots, was crowned PFA and FWA Player of the Year, and ranked among Liverpool’s top 10 goal scorers.
