With his contract, the Belgian midfielder is the highest earner in England and has the highest salary at the club, which is a matter of little pride.

De Bruyne is playing a great game for the citizens.

7. Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) – 531,000 per week.

The Portuguese forward has moved to Juventus over the summer, where his wages have more than doubled at Old Trafford, but he is still the biggest loser in the Premier League.

Ronaldo is one of the most prolific athletes on the planet and is possibly the world’s greatest footballer, with sponsorships and other areas amounting to 470 million a year.

6. Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint -Germain) – 566,000 per week.

The lowest paid of the PSG’s top three stars but still earning 10 worldwide, Mbappe is definitely on the list at least until the next decade, where he is also playing football.

5. Gareth Bale (Real Madrid) – 690,000 per week.

Contempt the dent his repute has endured in recent years, with Bale being one of the highest paid players in the game.

Hence Ronaldo moving into the top five with a move to Manchester United.

The Welshman is on the list, but Carlo Ancelotti’s return to Real Madrid has given him a chance to catch up.

4. Antoine Griezmann (Barcelona) – 793,000 per week.

Due to Messi’s departure, Griezmann is Barcelona’s only representative in the 10 highest paid football players 2021.

His tough salary is a burden on his struggle for the Catalan club and therefore, he needs to justify his salary this season after a disappointing few years.

3. Luis Suarez (Atletico Madrid) – 793,000 per week.

Someone in the top three, Suarez, is proving that Atleti is running out of money and that they can still do it at the top level.

After leaving from Blaugrana, Suarez performed brilliantly at the former Griezmann club, therefore, helping them to win La Liga Santander title in his first season.

2. Neymar (Paris Saint-Germain) – 836,000 per week.

The second PSG player on the list, Neymar is now second due to Messi comes in and when Ronaldo has lost his second position.

The Brazilian forward is a world star but still unable to compete with Ronaldo in status of sponsorship covers.
