Highest earning Premier League players at each of last year's top 6 clubs
Football is as much a business as it is a sport nowadays, with astronomical transfer fees and third party allowances. Players themselves are paid in millions to enthrall fans all over the globe. With such high numbers in the game now, it is no surprise that the Premier League clubs pay their players, especially their star players, rather handsomely.
Let us take a look at the highest earning footballers at each of last season's top 6 clubs.
#6 Manchester United - Paul Pogba
Paul Pogba returned to Manchester United last season from Juventus in a world record £89.3 million transfer. The figures involved in that move were astronomical, none more so than the weekly wage of the French international.
Pogba earns £290,000 a week, £50,000 more than second highest earner at the club, Romelu Lukaku. The big bucks are self-explanatory though, with Pogba an integral part of the Manchester United midfield machine. With trophies already added in his first season back, he will be looking to increase his haul this season and make a mark in the Champions League.
