The English Premier League is arguably Europe’s most sought-after top-division with the best financial capability to attract the best of talents to the league.

While the league is known to be one of Europe’s most equipped divisions capable to meet the salary demands of all the top players plying their trade in the country, ever wondered who are the highest earners in the league?

Like most of Europe’s top divisions’ players’ salaries are all relative, as such we’ll look at the highest earners in the EPL who are paid mouthwatering salaries weekly.

10. Carlos Casemiro – (Man. United, £300,000 – per-week)

Carlos Casemiro is a well-renowned defensive midfielder known for his tackling, good positioning and excellent game reading which stands him out amongst the rest in world football.

Manchester United announced their agreement for his transfer in 2022 having agreed to a £60million, plus £10 million in add-ons deal with Real Madrid signing a four-year contract with the Red Devils.

His lucrative salary package at United eclipses that of his salary at Real Madrid which is a whopping £300,000 per week which ranks him among the highest earners in the Premier League.

9. Jack Grealish – (Manchester City, £300,000 – per-week)

When Grealish first joined City in 2021 he admitted to being intimidated by the quality of players around him, but now with his imperious form and performance for the Citizens this season the former Aston Villa will certainly not feel intimidated anymore.

Grealish’s £100million move to City from Aston Villa eclipses the amount United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba, having shown his immense quality, and ability to beat his man and deliver decisive passes into the opposition’s yard.

The England international’s £300,000 per-week salary ranks him among the highest-earning players in the English Premier League, having signed a lucrative contract with Pep Guardiola-led team.

8. Kai Havertz – (Chelsea, £310,000 – per-week)

German international Havertz became Chelsea’s record signing back in 2020 when he arrived from Bayer Leverkusen for £75.8million, signing a five-year deal with the London giant.

Havertz was handed a mouthwatering weekly paycheck reported to be £310,000 per-week, having signed a five-year contract with the Stamford Bridge side in 2020 as one of Frank Lampard’s summer signings.

Since joining Chelsea in 2020 he’s been striving to impress Stamford Bridge fans having come to the club with a lot of potential from Bayer Leverkusen.

7. Raheem Sterling – (Chelsea, £325,000 – per-week)

When Sterling left City in the summer it came as a huge surprise to many football enthusiasts who thought the Englishman has a future at the Etihad Stadium, but surprisingly he joined Chelsea in the summer for £47.5million as an upgrade on their existing forward options.

His five-year contract with the Blues came with a whopping £325,000 a week to put him on the list of Premier League highest earners weekly.

Though Sterling hasn’t lived up to expectations at Stamford Bridge since he joined, the Three Lion forward has been pushing hard to impress the fans with his performance and goals-contributions.

6. Raphael Varane – (Manchester United, £340,000 – per-week)

Varane’s move to Old Trafford in the summer of 2021 saw his salary double to £340,000 per-week after he was reported to be earning £170,000 a week at the Santiago Bernabeu.

He arrived at Manchester United with a high pedigree having won three La Liga titles, four Champions League and a World Cup as a marque defender who could be trusted with the assignment to protect his defense.

The former France international endured an injury-plagued debut season at Old Trafford, but he has since rediscovered his best form with his magnificent partnership with Lisandro Martinez.

5. Mohamed Salah – (Liverpool, £350,000 – per-week)

Liverpool star Mo Salah eventually put pen to paper on a new bumper deal reportedly worth £350,000 a week over the summer, committing his future to the Anfield side until 2025.

After signing the deal he became Liverpool’s highest paid player and also one of Premier League’s top earners after the long negotiations was finally resolved.

On and off the pitch the Egyptian remains an icon of the club, but this season it is safe to say Salah hasn’t delivered enough looking at the inconsistency of the team both in the league and Champions League.

4. Jason Sancho – (Manchester United, £350,000 – per-week)

After a not-too-impressive performance for Manchester United this season and last campaign, Old Trafford fans would hope Sancho returns with a bang next season in order to justify his lucrative weekly wages.

He joined United from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2021 for £73million after a prolonged transfer saga with the German outfit.

While he’s shown glimpses of his talent when he first joined, Sancho really needs to start proving himself on the pitch as one of the league’s highest earners to avoid criticism from fans and pundits.

3. David De Gea – (Manchester United, £375,000 – per-week)

Up until the start of last season, De Gea was the Premier League’s highest paid player after he signed a four-year contract in the summer of 2019, but now the Spaniard is ranked third in the league.

Aside from being one of the highest earners in the league, De Gea is also the highest paid goalie in world football presently with £375,000 a week take home.

While his contract is reportedly set to expire soon, the club could decide to offer him a new contract if he continues to deliver top-notch performance in between the stick for the Red Devils.

2. Erling Bruut Haaland – (Manchester City, £375,000 – per-week)

Haaland makes his debut on this list for the first time as one of the highest earners in the English Premier League with £375,000 a week, having joined City from Borussia Dortmund for £51.2million.

The Norwegian has continuously proven to the world with his total goals scored (28) this season so far that he deserves the mouthwatering wages the Citizen pay him at the end of every week.

With his current wages at Manchester City the former Borussia Dortmund forward stands as the second-highest-paid player in the Premier League.

1. Kevin De Bruyne – (Manchester City, £400,000 – per-week)

Only Kevin De Bruyne earns more than City summer signing Erling Haaland at the Etihad with a mouthwatering weekly wage worth £400,000.

The City skipper penned a four-year deal in 2021 that skyrocket his weekly wages to £400k, having consistently proven himself as one the most complete footballers in the world.

Though the Belgian hasn’t won Europe’s most coveted UEFA Champions League trophy with City, however, he has cemented himself as one the finest to ever grace the Premier League.
