5. David De Gea - £375,000 per week
David de Gea is such an important player for Manchester United that the goalkeeper agreed to a deal in 2019 that pays him £375,000 per week and contains a four-year contract that includes an option for the following season.
After Alexis Sanchez signed his record-setting contract 18 months ago, the Spanish goalkeeper has been snubbed for the Player of the Year award by the Red Devils for the fourth year in a row. He has also been unable to secure a new contract during this time.
In light of the fact that doubts have been raised regarding the goalkeeper's potential future with Manchester United, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have both been mentioned as possible destinations for De Gea.
Even though the player's fortunes have been up and down since he signed with the club, the 31-year-old was selected as the club's Player of the Year for the fourth time in the 2021/22 season.
4. Erling Haaland - £375,000 per week
Since joining for Manchester City over the summer, Erling Haaland has vaulted himself into the top five of the Premier League's scoring charts.
After Manchester City outbid European powerhouses Borussia Dortmund to sign Haaland for a salary of £375,000 per week, the player has emerged as one of the most coveted young footballers on the continent of Europe.
After spending two and a half years at Dortmund and scoring 62 goals in 67 games played in the league, the 21-year-old is set to make his debut in the Bundesliga during the following season.
If he takes some time off, the reigning Premier League champions will be unbeatable in the upcoming season.
3. Kevin De Bruyne – £385,000 a week
During the time when Haaland's contract is in effect, Manchester City's highest-paid player is Kevin De Bruyne, who earns £385,000 a week.
In recent years, Kevin de Bruyne has been named the Player of the Year in the Premier League. He also received the honor of being named the PFA Player of the Year for the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons.
After leading the Premier League in goals scored with 15, the Belgian international was honored as Manchester City's player of the season. Manchester City was crowned champion of the Premier League thanks to his efforts.
The four-time winner of the Premier League at the Etihad Stadium will want to continue his historic contribution to the club during the upcoming campaign.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo, with a weekly salary of £385,000
This past summer, Cristiano Ronaldo decided to rejoin the team at Old Trafford for a salary of £385,000 a week, making him Manchester United's highest-paid player.
This record-breaking club has returned home more than ten years after the player first left to pursue opportunities at Real Madrid and Juventus. This season marks the club's return.
Despite Ronaldo's return, it has been a disappointing season for the club, as they are currently sixth in the Champions League standings. The Red Devils scored 24 goals across all competitions.
After becoming dissatisfied with the club's lack of interest in the transfer market, it is believed that the captain of Portugal wants to depart the team during this summer's offseason.
1. Mohamed Salah - £400,000 per week
With the signing of his new deal, Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah will become the highest-paid player in the Premier League, receiving a club-record £400,000 per week for his services.
The Egypt international has been a vital part of Jurgen Klopp's recent success with the Reds at Anfield, keeping five consecutive clean sheets during his time at the club.
In the previous year, he was honored as the Player of the Year by both the PFA and the FWA. In addition, he was awarded three Golden Boots for the Premier League and became one of Liverpool's top 10 goal scorers.
Even though Sadio Mane is going to depart Liverpool this summer to pursue a new challenge, his new contract with the club will give the Reds hope that they can compete for big titles in the upcoming season.
