Highest Paid Players In Premier League: See 2022-23 Top 10

Who are the highest-paid players in the Premier League, 2022-23?

It is not exactly a secret that footballer salaries in England are among the best in the world, but who are the highest-paid players in the Premier League?

With each club receiving hundreds of millions in television money, even average Premier League footballers are extremely well-paid compared to many of their contemporaries on the continent.

But here are the 10 Premier League stars with the highest weekly wage* as the 2022-23 season gets underway.

=10. Casemiro (Man Utd, £300k)

Just edging out fellow big-name summer signing Kalidou Koulibaly into the top 10, Brazilian superstar Casemiro arrives at Manchester United as one of the league’s top earners.

And fair enough, really. Signing as a five-time Champions League winner and arriving at a club that started the season and can only offer Europa League football, you don’t imagine his agent needed to be a master negotiate to demand top dollar.

=10. Jack Grealish (Man City, £300k)

England’s great white hope – summer 2021 version – endured an underwhelming debut season at Manchester City following his £100million move from Villa.

But Grealish remains a player of immense quality, capable of beating his man and delivering incisive passes, and many observers expect him to perform closer to his ability in 2022-23.

“Jack is a number 10,” former City winger Trevor Sinclair told talkSPORT. “He’s one of these star players who gets fans off their seats and gives them excitement and we didn’t really see enough of that last season.

“We saw it against Real Madrid in the game where he came off the bench and was excellent, and I thought that should have been the catalyst to make him believe that he’s good enough this season coming and really hit the ground running.

“The season starts this week and I’m really hoping that he reproduces what we’ve seen him do at Aston Villa.”

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 existing forward options and is one of the best attackers around.

He’s yet to open his account for the Blues but we’re sure it won’t be long.

7. Raphael Varane (Man Utd, £340k)

Varane’s quality has never been in doubt – nobody has four Champions League gold medals alongside winning the World Cup without being able to kick a ball straight – but injuries meant his first season at United was distinctly unmemorable.

But his first appearance alongside Lisandro Martinez as United beat Liverpool 2-1 was very promising indeed. There’s time yet for his sizeable wages to look like money well spent.

=5. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool, £350k)

After a contract impasse that threatened to overshadow Liverpool’s season, Salah signed a new deal until 2025 that makes him the highest-paid player in the club’s history.

“At the end of the season, from maybe April until the end, there was a lot of talk about (his) contract and stuff,” Virgil van Dijk told The Telegraph in July. “We’re all human beings and maybe that affected him a little bit, unfortunately.”

But it’s safe to say Salah has earned his pay rise. Expect to see Anfield’s Egyptian King banging in the goals this year.

=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…

That ice-cold finish against Liverpool offers hope year two will be different.

Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho celebrates scoring against Southampton at Old Trafford, Manchester, February 2022.

=3. David de Gea (Man Utd, £375k)

De Gea is by far the Premier League goalkeeper pocketing the most cash per week – second-placed Kepa Arrizabalaga gets a relatively trifling £150k – and United’s shoddy defending last year meant he earned every penny.

The long-serving keeper is determined for United to improve this season, telling The Guardian: “We cannot do the same because it was a disaster. I really hope we’re going to play much better. It was very tough, embarrassing sometimes.

“Some games were a mess. It was painful, unacceptable. Sometimes, you have to feel pain to go up and keep going.”

=3. Erling Haaland (Man City, £375k) 

Forget his underwhelming Community Shield display; Haaland will back himself to break Premier League goalscoring records and City fought off competition from the cream of European football to bring him to the Etihad.

It normally takes players a season to acclimatise to Pep Guardiola, but, at £375k a week, the 22-year-old has already scored three goals in his first three Premier League appearances.

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 their Player of the Season for 21-22…

Premier League Player of the Year Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City celebrates scoring against Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester, England, 6th March 2022.

1. Cristiano Ronaldo (Man Utd, £515k)

Ronaldo has spent the entire summer pleading to leave United, and we suspect Ten Hag wouldn’t be displeased if Ronaldo did so, but the 37-year-old remains the Premier League’s highest-paid player on £515k per week.

It remains to be seen whether that will remain the case after the transfer window closes.
