Aubameyang new Arsenal contract makes him the Highest Earner in the English Top Flight.
Despite the financial strain caused by COVID-19 pandemic, this summer has seen some English premier league players signing mega deals and eye-watering contracts.We saw Arsenal rewarding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a new contract earlier this month making him the highest earner in English Football as it stands now.
The future of the Gabonese star was up in the air for months now but he has put pen to paper extending his contract by another three years putting all talk of a move away to bed. Not only does that make him the Gunner’s top earner but it also make him pocket more money than anyone else in the premier league.
Below are the top earners in England’s top-flight:
- William (Arsenal)
William is believed to be earning £220k-per-week after signing three years contact with them
- Sergio Aguero | Man City | £230k-per-week
- Anthony Martial | Manchester United| £250k-per-week
- Paul Pogba | Manchester United | £290k-per-week
- Raheem Sterling | Man City | £300k-per-week
- Kai Havertz | Chelsea | £310k-per-week
- Kevin De Bryne | Man City | 320k-per-week
3.David de Gea | Man United | £350k-per-week
- Mesut Ozil | Arsenal | £350k-per-week
- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang | Arsenal | £375k-per-week
There’s a lot of money made on the list which is of course, dominated by players from big teams. Ex-Chelsea player William recently sign three years contract with north London rival Arsenal after rejecting a two- year contract with Chelsea and he is believed to be earning around £220k-per-week at his new club
One of the new recruits for Chelsea this season, Kai Havertz has proven pedigree in one of the best leagues in Europe. The 21-year-old has shown impressive versatility given his age. It’s not surprising to see him ranked 5th on the list and being Chelsea highest earner due to his exceptional talents he’s having but let’s wait and see how he can adjust to the intensity of the premier league and live to the expectations.
No Liverpool player makes the cut and it’s interesting tho but we have to accord that respect to the premier league champions for having a strict wage structure in place. The situation surrounding Mesut Ozil is devastating as the player remains frozen out of first-team action. He has recently confirmed he is “fit and ready” to play but the Gunner’s playmaker has been frozen out of manager Mikel Arteta’s plans despite earning a whopping £350k per week as he enters the final year of his contract
Three of the top highest earners now play for Arsenal and with so much money being spent, let’s see if they can get hold of a silverware this season.
