The football landscape has shifted in 2023, with the Premier League no longer boasting the highest-paid superstars in the game. Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, and Neymar now command salaries that eclipse even the top earners in England’s top flight.
While the Premier League may lack the very top tier of earners, its stars are still handsomely compensated. We’ve compiled a list of the league’s highest-paid players – midfielders and forwards – and their estimated annual wages.
DM. €21.3million. Casemiro
A serial Champions League winner with Real Madrid, Casemiro brought his world-class defensive midfield talents to Manchester United in 2022. The Brazilian’s tenacious tackling and intelligent positioning have given United much-needed protection and balance in midfield. Still in his prime at 30 years old, Casemiro’s experience and work rate have proven invaluable for United’s rebuild under Ten Hag.
CM. €24.3million. Kevin De Bruyne
With his sublime passing range and flawless technique, Kevin De Bruyne is the creative heartbeat of Manchester City’s all-conquering side. The Belgian maestro can unlock defences with trademark whipped crosses or slide-rule-through balls from midfield. Despite injuries hampering him last season, a fit De Bruyne remains the Premier League’s preeminent playmaker and most devastating assist king. Secured to a lucrative new contract until 2025, De Bruyne’s genius will continue driving City’s quest for domestic and European glory.
CM. €18.3million. Bernardo Silva
A wizardly technician capable of wizardry on the ball, Bernardo Silva is the perfect encapsulation of Manchester City’s aesthetic style. The Portuguese midfielder’s close control, vision, and passing allow him to glide across the pitch, dictating play from all angles. Despite wanting to leave last summer, Silva remains integral to Guardiola’s midfield orchestration and interchangeable tactics. With his tenacity matching his technique, the 28-year-old continues proving invaluable to City’s dominance across competitions.
RW. €21.3million. Mohamed Salah
Since arriving at Liverpool in 2017, Mohamed Salah has established himself as one of the Premier League’s most prolific goalscorers and dazzling talents. The Egyptian’s pace, trickery, and lethal left foot regularly terrorize defences and lift Anfield with moments of magic. Despite struggles in 2022-23, Salah remains devoted to bringing more silverware to Liverpool when he inevitably rediscovers his best form. With his world-class ability and relentless drive, Salah will continue pushing himself to break more records in a Liverpool shirt.
LW. €21.3million. Jadon Sancho
After starring in the Bundesliga, Jadon Sancho’s much-anticipated move to Manchester United has yet to fully ignite after joining in 2021. The gifted English winger shows flashes of brilliance but has struggled for consistent form amid the club’s recent turbulence. With Ten Hag’s rebuild in progress, Sancho still has time to thrive and be the electrifying match-winner he was nurtured to be. If he can produce his best football, Sancho’s direct running and creativity could finally transform United’s attacking fortunes.
ST. €22.8million. Erling Haaland
The Norwegian phenom has exceeded even the loftiest expectations since arriving at Manchester City, smashing Premier League scoring records with his freakish finishing. Built like a frontline tank with deceptive pace, Haaland is a defender’s nightmare who devastatingly spearheads City’s attack. His ruthlessness in front of goal makes Haaland the most dangerous striker in the world, capable of deciding any game singlehandedly. With Haaland leading the line, City have an even more frightening cutting edge unlocking their domestic and Champions League ambitions.
