Edison Cavani – (Manchester United, €292,000)
Call him El-matador or Cavani you won’t be wrong the Uruguayan was a shrewd recruitment for the Red Devils when he joined on a free transfer after leaving Paris Saint Germain last summer, and since then his impact has been felt decently both on and off the pitch no wonder he smiles to the bank with a whopping €292,000 par week.
With Manchester United acquisition of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund a player that would also often smile to the bank with a gigantic paycheck every week going into the new season pairing the likes of Cavani, Rashford, or Martial would be key to the Old Trafford team success.
Anthony Martial – (Manchester United, €292,000)
Former AS Monaco forward Martial is also one of the highest earner in the English top-flight with a robust paycheck every week. Although he had an underwhelming campaign last season with the Red Devils yet that doesn’t hamper him from smiling to the bank at the end of the week with huge cash.
The new campaign is upon us as such quite a number of United fans would be looking forward to see their players excel both in the league and on the continent. With that in mind Martial must be ready to deliver come next season with aplomb.
Timo Werner – (Chelsea, €315,000)
If there is any Chelsea player who had an underwhelming performances last season despite all the huge expectations from the fans and neutrals, that player is no other than the former RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner.
Though he was involved in the Chelsea goal that got them the Champions League at the final yet many still felt he could have done more for the team in terms of his goal ratio. Regardless of what happened to him last season the German international his one of the highest earner in the team.
Paul Pogba – (Manchester United, €338,000)
Hate or like him the Frenchman is undoubtedly one of the best player of his generation. The jury has always been on his case especially since he joined United from Juventus in 2016.
Pogba couldn’t help Les Blues progress further at the just concluded European Championship won by the Azzurri’s, but he did shown what he’s capable of at the tournament with his play and the beautiful goal he scored. His one of the highest earner in Old Trafford even with another lucrative deal on the table for him to sign which he hasn’t yet.
Raheem Sterling – (Manchester City, €350,000)
The Wembley roar at the European Championship in every match that involves the Three Lion of England was ignited by the performances of that man from Brent in terms of his goals and all round contributions on the pitch.
Sterling was quite impressive at the Euro from the back of a below par display for City in the English Premier League last season. Truly he couldn’t drag the English national team to winning the trophy but he was very instrumental in their journey to the final and should he take that form to City for the new season that might also fetch him a new contract and more money.
Kai Havertz – (Chelsea, €362,000)
To say Havertz won Chelsea the 2020-21 UEFA Champions League is an understatement the German international endured a difficult first season at Stamford Bridge following his move from Bayer Leverkusen. Following the appointment of his compatriot the former Bayer midfielder hit the ground running with some couple of decent performances in the Champions League and most importantly in the final.
Thomas Tuchel would definitely be expecting his compatriot and one of the highest earner in his team to up his game more compared to what he brought to the table last season as we edge closer to the new campaign both in the English Premier League and on the continent.
Jason Sancho – (Manchester United, €408,000)
Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finally got their most coveted player in the transfer market from Borussia Dortmund for a whopping amount reported to be £73m. With the deal already signed and delivered Sancho will be the second most expensive English player of all time behind his United teammates Harry Maguire.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – (Arsenal, €408,000)
Aubameyang and Arsenal had a 2020-21 season to forget both in the English Premier League and on the continent, but as we edge closer to the new campaign the Gunners would hope to have a fruitful and better 2021-22 campaign with all their focus only on the league and league cup.
The Gabonese his undoubtedly the go to man for the Gunners when in need of goal so with that in mind Mikeal Arteta would hope to see his man hit the ground running once the season commences.
Kevin De Bruyne – (Manchester City, €449,000)
The Belgian international De Bruyne is one of the best midfielder in the English Premier League and as such it is expected that he makes these list as one of the highest earner. The midfield maestro was immense for the Citizens last season both in the league and Europe winning the title and coming second in the Champions League.
He couldn’t help Belgium prevail at the Euro Championship losing to the hands of the Azzurri’s, regardless of what happened at the tournament the number one earner in the topflight his expected to pick up from where he left it last season.
