The Premier League is the biggest, most watched league in the world. As a result, the clubs can afford to have the best paid players in the world on their payroll. So, here are the best-paid players in every position. 

GK: David De Gea (Manchester United) – £375,000

De Gea is now the undisputed first choice at Manchester United, and earns £220,000 more than any other goalkeeper in the Premier League. 

RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) – £180,000


The Liverpool academy graduate recently signed an extension, and that has taken up his wages to be the best in the right-back spot. 

CB: John Stones (Manchester City) – £250,000

Stones was criticised for his poor form and how much he cost City a couple seasons ago. However, with the arrival of Ruben Dias, he has established himself as one of the best in the league. 

CB: Raphael Varane (Manchester United) – £340,000

Varane recently moved to Old Trafford and is already the best paid central defender in the league. The former Real Madrid man has agreed on a contract until June 2025 with them. 

LB: Ben Chilwell (Chelsea) – £190,000

Chilwell was a highly anticipated recruit by Chelsea, and he is the best-paid left-back in the league alongside being the most expensive in terms of transfer fees. 

CM: N’Golo Kante (Chelsea) – £290,000

Kante is without a doubt the most essential part of the Chelsea squad and was the best-paid player until the arrival of Lukaku. He is in line for a new deal that could take his wages up further. 

CAM: Jack Grealish (Manchester City) – £300,000

Grealish was offered a £200,000 contract by Aston Villa if he wanted to stay at the club. However, Man City paid his release clause and he is now earning three times his former wage. 

CM: Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) – £400,000

De Bruyne is without a doubt the best player in the Premier League, and after negotiating a new contract all by himself, he is the best-paid midfielder in England. 

LW: Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) – £300,000

Sterling has found his form in recent months, especially with England in the Euros. The Man City winger is also in line for a new contract soon. 

RW: Jadon Sancho (Manchester United) – £350,0000

Sancho is only in his early 20s and earns more than most established players not only in Manchester United but also in the Premier League. This will surely be some form of pressure on his shoulders while with England. 

ST: Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) – £510,000 

Upon his successful return to Manchester United, Ronaldo has agreed on a salary a little less than what he was being given at Juventus. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is now the best-paid player in England.
