The Top 20 Premier League Players’ Salaries (Highest Weekly Wages 2024 Updated)

The Premier League has consistently drawn some of the world’s top players, leading to an escalation in the financial stakes within England’s elite division.

With star talents hailing from both England and overseas, exorbitant sums are being disbursed to secure their services. But what exactly do these players earn on a weekly basis? Here, we delve into the top 20 Premier League salaries to unveil the staggering amounts collected by each player every week.

1. Kevin de Bruyne – Manchester City

Leading the pack in the salary rankings is Kevin de Bruyne, who has been an integral part of Manchester City for nearly a decade.

Since his return to England, de Bruyne’s stellar performances have led to a substantial increase in his earnings, now standing at an impressive £400,000 per week. The midfielder most recently renewed his contract with City in 2021.

Erling Haaland – Manchester City


Erling Haaland has been a sensational addition to Manchester City since his transfer from Borussia Dortmund, consistently finding the back of the net under Pep Guardiola’s management, thus validating his substantial wage at the Etihad.

With reports suggesting a release clause of around £173 million, it raises curiosity regarding how long he will continue his tenure with the Sky Blues.

3. Mohamed Salah – Liverpool

Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah currently pockets a big salary at Anfield, penning his latest deal back in 2022.

However, he has been of interest from clubs in Saudi Arabia, and with the Egyptian out of contract in 2025, this summer could see him depart the Reds.

4. Casemiro – Manchester United

The biggest Manchester United earner is holding midfielder Casemiro, who like Varane, swapped the Bernabeu for Old Trafford.

Like Varane, though, Casemiro is into his 30s, and there have been rumours of a potential exit for the Brazilian, despite being under contract until 2026.

5. Raphael Varane – Manchester United

Centre-back Raphael Varane was a marquee signing at Old Trafford back in 2021 shortly before former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer left.

Arriving from Real Madrid, the Frenchman hasn’t exactly transformed Manchester United at the back and even recently fell out of favour under Erik ten Hag.

6. Raheem Sterling – Chelsea

Chelsea signed Raheem Sterling from Manchester City back in 2022 and the winger has gone on to become a regular at Stamford Bridge under a number of different managers.

The Blues paid just under £50m for Sterling’s services and gave him a huge contract over five years.

7. Jack Grealish – Manchester City

Fellow England international Jack Grealish also picks up £300,000-a-week in Manchester following his big-money transfer from Aston Villa to City back in 2021.

After a relatively underwhelming first season, Grealish played a bigger role in his second year, helping the club to a famous treble.

8. Marcus Rashford – Manchester United

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is another who earns £300,000-a-week and has done ever since signing new terms last summer.

His previous deal was set to expire in 2024, but he now looks on course to remain at the club until 2028, looking to play a key part of the Sir Jim Ratcliffe era.

9. Bernardo Silva – Manchester City

One of four Manchester City players on £300,000-a-week or more is attacking midfielder Bernardo Silva. Heavily linked with an Etihad exit over recent years, the Portugal international has remained in Manchester, continuing to help City win plenty of trophies.

During his seven-year stay, Silva has made more than 300 appearances for the club, winning 15 honours.

10. Kai Havertz – Arsenal

Well-known for scoring the winning goal in the Champions League final for Chelsea against Manchester City, Kai Havertz headed across London to sign for Arsenal last year.

The German penned a five-year deal but has struggled to find the back of the net on a regular basis at the Emirates.

11. Gabriel Jesus – Arsenal

Gabriel Jesus left Manchester City to reunite with Mikel Arteta at Arsenal in 2022 in a transfer worth £45m.

The forward was immediately handed a huge Gunners contract and the famous no.9 shirt, with the Brazilian set to pick up £265,000-a-week until 2027.

12. John Stones – Manchester City

Yet another England international on the list is John Stones. The defender has gone from strength to strength under Pep Guardiola and played a pivotal role in Manchester City’s treble-winning campaign.

Stones has turned out as a centre-back, right-back and holding midfielder at the Etihad and has been with the club since 2016.

13. Reece James – Chelsea

Another England international who has had their fair share of injury problems is Reece James. The defender was named Chelsea captain last summer but hasn’t had the impact he would’ve been hoping for under Mauricio Pochettino.

James picks up £250,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge and, assuming he remains with the Blues, will do until at least 2028.

14. Mason Mount – Manchester United

Someone who looks to have a long-term future at Manchester United is Mason Mount, although the midfielder’s first season with the Red Devils hasn’t gone to plan.

Signed from Chelsea in 2023, Mount penned a five-year deal at Old Trafford but has missed large parts of the campaign through injury.

15. Anthony Martial – Manchester United

Things haven’t gone well for Anthony Martial at Manchester United in recent years, with the forward struggling with a variety of injuries.

The Frenchman still picks up a huge Old Trafford salary and has since 2019. However, his deal is up in the summer, so Martial’s days in Manchester could well be numbered.

16. Martin Odegaard – Arsenal

Another Gunners star – Martin Odegaard – is also on the same pay as Rice. The Norwegian has become Arsenal’ club captain and has become one of the club’s most important players following his permanent move from Real Madrid in 2021.

Odegaard actually signed a new deal last year, keeping him on the books until 2028.

17. Declan Rice – Arsenal

Declan Rice is now the most expensive British player of all time following his big-money move across London last year.

The midfielder swapped West Ham for Arsenal in a £105m transfer and also netted an eye-catching salary at the Emirates. Picking up £240,000-a-week across five years, Rice will pocket more than £60m during his north London stay.

18. Bruno Fernandes – Manchester United

Attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes has now been with Manchester United for four years and is under contract at Old Trafford until 2026.

The Portugal international took over the captaincy under Erik ten Hag last year from Harry Maguire, however, Fernandes isn’t the highest Red Devils earner, as you will see.

19. Phil Foden – Manchester City

Manchester City gem Phil Foden has progressed through the Etihad Stadium academy and is now one of Pep Guardiola’s most important players.

The 23-year-old has won 16 honours with City – including five Premier League titles and a Champions League – and he penned a new deal back in 2022 which saw his salary increase to £225,000-a-week.

20. Virgil van Dijk – Liverpool

Beginning the countdown is arguably one of the best defenders the Premier League has ever seen – Virgil van Dijk.

The Liverpool star made the move from Southampton in 2018 and has gone from strength to strength in Merseyside. He has an unbelievable record at Anfield and helped the Reds win the title back in 2020.
