10 Premier League players with the highest salaries in 2022–2023: KDB, Ronaldo

The Premier League is regarded as the richest in football, and players from Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool earn some of the highest salaries in the world.

Footballers in the Premier League are extraordinarily well paid, with each team collecting hundreds of millions of dollars in television revenue. The majority of Europe’s highest-paid footballers play in England.

As the 2022–23 season gets begun, we’ve done some research and, thanks to Capology, have determined the ten Premier League players earning the highest weekly salaries.

10. Kalidou Koulibaly (Chelsea, £295k)

After spending years as a semi-mystic rumor mill fixture, Koulibaly has finally made it to the Premier League, and Chelsea is paying him a salary commensurate with his elite status.

Following the exits of Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel moved swiftly to sign the Napoli center defender, who will don John Terry’s former No. 26 jersey.

9. Jack Grealish (Man City, £300k)

The summer 2021 iteration of England’s great white hope had a lackluster debut campaign with Manchester City after his £100 million transfer from Villa.

However, Grealish is still a very talented player who can beat his defender and make sharp passes. Many experts anticipate that in 2022–2023, he will play more effectively.

Former City winger Trevor Sinclair told talkSPORT, “Jack is a number 10.” “He’s one of those superstar players that excites and rouses supporters, and we really didn’t see enough of that last season,” said one fan.

We witnessed it against Real Madrid in the game when he came off the bench and performed superbly, and I believed it should have been the motivating factor to make him a starter.

8. Raheem Sterling (Chelsea, £325k)

It’s no surprise that Chelsea are paying Sterling £325,000 a week; the summer signing from City represents an upgrade on their exisiting forward options and is one of the best attackers around.

7.Raphael Varane (Man Utd, £340k)

Nobody with four Champions League gold medals, the World Cup, and the ability to kick a ball straight has ever doubted Varane’s ability, but injuries made his first season at United distinctively forgettable.

In addition, with Erik ten Hag and Lisandro Martinez now publicly supporting Harry Maguire, £340,000-a-week Varane might find himself the outlier in United’s backline.

6. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool, £350k)

Salah signed a new contract that keeps him at Liverpool through 2025, making him the highest-paid player in the team’s history after a contract standoff threatened to overshadow the team’s season.

Virgil van Dijk admitted to The Telegraph in July that “towards the end of the season, from maybe April till the finish, there was a lot of chatter about (his) contract and whatnot.” “Unfortunately, we’re all human, so maybe that had some impact on him.”

But it’s safe to say that Salah has earned his wage increase, and this season, expect to see Liverpool’s Egyptian King hammering in the goals.

5. Jadon Sancho (Man Utd, £350k) 

United will be hoping for a greater return on their Sancho investment this season but he’s certainly capable of living up to his billing…

4. David de Gea (Man Utd, £375k)

De Gea earns every penny he receives because of United’s poor defense last season. He is by far the Premier League goalkeeper earning the highest money per week; second-placed Kepa Arrizabalaga earns a paltry £150k.

The veteran goalkeeper, who has been with United for a long time, said to The Guardian: “We cannot do the same because it was a disaster. I sincerely hope that we will play much better. It was really difficult and occasionally embarrassing.

There were some messy games. It hurt and was unacceptable. Pain is sometimes necessary to move forward and carry on.

3. Erling Haaland (Man City, £375k) 

Forget about his poor performance in the Community Shield; Haaland is confident that he can break Premier League goalscoring records, and City beat out the best of European football to sign him to a contract at the Etihad.

Players typically need a season to adjust to Pep Guardiola, but at £375k per week, the 22-year-old will be expected to start strong. And please don’t claim he’s not on your fantasy team.

2. Kevin de Bruyne (Man City, £400k)

Even at £400k, De Bruyne represents brilliant value for City; the midfielder can do things with a football that’d be considered illegal in parts of the Southern Hemisphere and was deservedly named the Player of the Season for 21-22…

1. Cristiano Ronaldo (Man Utd, £515k)

Ronaldo has been begging to leave United for the entire summer, and we have a feeling that Ten Hag wouldn’t be upset if he did, but at £515k per week, the 37-year-old is still the highest-paid player in the Premier League.

It’s unclear whether that will hold true until the transfer window expires.
