Highest-paid Footballer Weekly
This is an article compiled by FootballTerms about Highest-paid footballer weekly updated latest and most complete
The former Chelsea midfielder is reportedly keen to join the La Liga giants, even though that would mean his current weekly wage of more than £500k would dramatically decrease.
He is currently sitting pretty in the world’s top 10 highest-paid players thanks to his deal with Shanghai Port, but Barca won’t be able to offer him anywhere near that figure.
They already have one player on the list, while stars from Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Paris Saint-Germain also feature.
Check out the ten highest-paid footballers weekly via today’s blog.
10. David de Gea – £375,000 per week
Plenty of reasons to celebrate David de Gea. United’s shot-stopper De Gea has been with the club for over a decade now, so has managed to work his way up the pay scale.
His bumper contract makes him the highest-paid goalkeeper in the world, something which he has largely vindicated on the pitch during his Old Trafford tenure. He is also one of the highest paid Premier League players weekly.
9. Philippe Coutinho – £380,000 per week
Who should get a pay rise and a pay cut? Let us know in the comments section.
Barcelona is still part of funding Philippe Coutinho’s contract after he joined Aston Villa. Aston Villa’s new boy Coutinho is one of many stars who Barca has chucked money at in recent years and is now deeply regretting it.
He could permanently join the Midlands club in the summer, but they are still contributing to his nearly £400k-a-week wages while he makes his Premier League return.
8. Eden Hazard – £381,000 per week
Real Madrid hasn’t had much in return for Eden Hazard’s sizeable contract. Oscar’s former Blues team-mate Hazard has cost Real an eye-watering amount with a £100m transfer fee in 2019 and a mega pay packet.
They did not receive anywhere near what they expected from the Belgian superstar as injuries have cursed his time in La Liga.
7. Kevin De Bruyne – £385,000 per week
Man City handed Kevin De Bruyne a pay rise last year. City’s top earner makes a list and rightly so because only the odd spell on the sidelines can stop the midfield magician from tearing opponents apart.
In fact, De Bruyne’s 2021 contract extension made him the highest-paid player in the whole of the Prem, until the arrival of…
6. Cristiano Ronaldo – £385,000 per week
Cristiano Ronaldo happily put pen to paper on his Manchester United contract Red Devils legend may have fallen down the list by leaving Juventus, but he still sits sixth overall thanks to the deal he signed last summer.
While he has the same basic wage as De Bruyne, Ronaldo will earn millions more each year from his unrivaled sponsorship deals.
5. Kylian Mbappe – £410,000 per week
Kylian Mbappe is 23 years old and earning mega bucks. PSG is one of the largest financial superpowers in world football today, and the fact that Mbappe is earning more than £400k each week aged just 23 proves that.
Of course, that contract is expiring at the end of the season, when the Frenchman looks set to sign yet another ludicrous deal with Real.
4. Gareth Bale – £528,000 per week
There’s only a matter of months left before Gareth Bale will see a giant wage drop. It looks to be one-in, one-out at the Santiago Bernabeu in the next transfer window because Bale will be leaving when his deal is up.
Real will be thankful because Bale has been earning way over the £500k mark while spending significant periods of this season sidelined with various problems.
3. Oscar – £540,000 per week
Oscar sits third on the list, as per data from multiple sources. Oscar is without a doubt the biggest beneficiary of the Chinese Super League’s crazy cash injection in the mid to late 2010s.
He was initially on £400k-a-week after his £60m moved in 2016, but a contract extension two years later saw his weekly wages increase to £563k, though that has since dropped slightly.
2. Neymar – £606,000 per week
The world’s most expensive footballer, Neymar, is not its highest earner. As the most expensive footballer in the history of the beautiful game, of course, Neymar features in the upper echelon of this list.
The Brazilian forward is compensated heavily for his flicks and tricks by PSG, with more than £600k deposited into his bank each week.
1. Lionel Messi – £960,000 per week
The legendary Lionel Messi is rightly benefiting from PSG’s financial resources. Messi was willing to take a 50% pay cut to stay at Barcelona but instead ended up with a massive pay rise when he joined PSG.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner is by far and away the highest-earning footballer on the planet.
His form in Ligue 1 has been underwhelming, but he has dazzled in the Champions League.
