The next top earner of the Premier League would be Gareth Bale after his return to Tottenham has been confirmed.
Fourfourtwo reports alleged to be worth £500,000 a week at Real Madrid, the PA news agency is looking at the current top wages in the Premier League.
- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal)
Fresh from inspiring Mikel Arteta’s side of the FA Cup and the Community Shield. A new and improved three-year deal worth £375,000 a week has been signed by the Arsenal captain this week.
- David De Gea (Manchester United)
Last September, United made Spaniard the world’s best-paid goalkeeper internationally, albeit on a temporary basis, putting an end to widespread speculation about its future. David De Gea’s return to the club after shining for Sheffield United has put pressure on the player’s position that he’s going to earn around £375,000 a week.
- Mesut Ozil (Arsenal)
The winner of the World Cup has not played under Arteta, and he still has a year to run on his weekly wages of £350,000.
While you might be questioning the logic of paying Aubameyang so much at the age of 31 – the same age as Bale – the Gunners are surely going to get better value out of him than they are at the age of Ozil.
- Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)
In Manchester City, the reigning PFA Player of the Year is reported to be £330,000 per week when guaranteed bonuses are taken into account. On the extension of the Belgian star deal at the Etihad Stadium, talks are reportedly underway.
- Kai Havertz (Chelsea)
The biggest signing of the summer to date, the Germany international is reportedly taking home a weekly salary of £ 310,000. At the beginning of the month, the 21-year-old joined Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of £ 70 million and made his debut against Brighton on Monday.
