Gareth Bale's arrival at Tottenham shook the football world. Not only because he is a great player, but also because he will have the largest salary in the entire league, exceeding 600,000 euros a week. It is without a doubt a completely exorbitant salary, so we decided to compare it with the other top earning players in that league.
1. David de Gea- 375,000 euros per week
Until Bale's arrival, de Gea was the player who won the most in the league, as well as the goalkeeper who won the most. Recently, however, he has questioned whether he really deserves this salary, as he has not played at the level expected of him. The newspaper El Confidencial highlights that "the Spaniard has been without a penalty stop in the Premier League since 2014."
2. Kevin de Bruyne- 320,833 euros per week
The Manchester City player is invaluable to his team. This past season, he had 13 goals and 20 assists in 35 appearances averaging 2.23 points per game. Recently, he was revealed as one of the three nominees for best footballer of the 2019-2020 season by UEFA.
3. Raheem Sterling- 300,000 euros per week
Another Manchester City player, but this time a forward. With 33 appearances and 20 goals, he is undoubtedly an invaluable piece on the whole. At just 25 years old, the future is great for Sterling.
4. Paul Pogba- 290,000 euros per week
This Manchester United player has had, like de Gea, a rocky trajectory in his team. Their participation has had marked ups and downs and has failed to produce results. However, this does not prevent him from being one of the highest paid in the league.
5. Mesut Ozil- 268,750 euros per week
The Arsenal veteran continues to move impressive amounts of money, even though their recent results are not the best and they are less and less viewed by coaches as a first choice on their team. The benefits of seniority.
