After dominating the international scene and winning every team and individual award at Real Madrid and Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo decided to go back to Manchester United in the summer of 2021. With just a few days left in the transfer window, the Portuguese star tied himself to a two-year contract with the Red Evils that will pay him £515,00 per week.
In his two stints in England, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored over one hundred Premier League goals and won the EPL title three times.
2. Erling Haaland – £375,000 per week
In less than five seasons at the highest level in European club soccer, Norwegian star striker Erling Haaland has taken the world by storm and he is chasing every major scoring record. Manchester City jumped ahead of the competition, securing his signing and tying him to a five-year £375,000 per week contract.
Erling Haaland is redefining the striker position thanks to an unprecedented combination of speed and power that allows him to dominate against any defender and rarely miss a goal chance.
3. Mohamed Salah – £350,000 per week
In six seasons as a Red, Mo Salah has become one of the all-time greats in Liverpool history and one of the most loved players by the fanbase. After rumors of a possible exit in the summer of 2023, Mo Salah decided to extend his stay at Anfield by signing a three-year £350,000 per week contract extension in July 2022.
Mo Salah has over two hundred fifty goal contributions with Liverpool and has won every trophy available since he joined the club in 2017.
4. Jadon Sancho – £350,000 per week
Just like his former Borussia Dortmund teammate Erling Haaland, Jadon Sancho reached stardom playing in the Bundesliga, the German top-flight league where he was constantly among the top goal providers. In the summer of 2021, Sancho made his return to England by signing a five-year £350,000 per week contract with Manchester United.
Since he arrived at Manchester United, Sancho has been one of the best wingers in the English Premier League thanks to his lethal dribbling and passing skills.
5. Gabriel Jesus – £265,000 per week
After five seasons and a half at Manchester City, Brazilian star Gabriel Jesus decided to move to North London and sign with Arsenal. Jesus put pen to paper on a five-year £265,000 per week contract in June, which makes him the fifth highest-paid forward in the English Premier League.
During his time at Manchester City, Gabriel Jesus scored ninety-nine goals and provided forty-two assists, proving to be the prototype of the mobile striker who can pass the ball and even play wide.
6. Anthony Martial – £250,000 per week
Anthony Martial joined Manchester United in 2015 as one of the hottest prospects in international club soccer. In 2019 the Red Evils decided to hand him a six-year £250,000 per week, which fired him up to finish 2019/20 with his best-EPL goal tally: seventeen goals.
The French forward is among the most versatile players in the EPL as he can play in almost any position up front as both striker and winger and even central attacking midfielder when required.
7. Antony – £200,000 per week
Still in search of their first Premier League title since 2012, Manchester United decided to break the bank to sign Ajax wonderkid Antony. The Brazilian winger moved to England in the last few days of the transfer window signing a £200,000 per week contract to be a Red Evil through the 2027 season.
In two seasons at Ajax Antony recorded over forty goal contributions contributing to give the club two Eredivisie titles and a Dutch cup.
8. Marcus Rashford – £200,000 per week
Since his first team debut in 2016, Manchester United academy product Marcus Rashford has become a Red Evil fan favorite. In 2019 the Manchester native signed a contract extension that will pay him £200,000 per week until the summer of 2024.
In over three hundred games at the club, Marcus Rashford has had over one hundred sixty goal contributions and has turned into a versatile forward that can play in almost any position up top.
9. Harry Kane – £200,000 per week
Spurs and Three Lions captain Harry Kane is the forward with the fifth largest contract in the English Premier League. The English forward has spent his whole career at Tottenham, except four brief loan spells, and inked a six-year £200,000 per week contract extension in 2016.
At twenty-nine years old, Harry Kane holds many Premier League records including most away goals and most goals scored for a single club. Harry Kane is also a three-time EPL Golden Boot winner.
10. Heung-Min Son – £192,000 per week
Harry Kane’s sparring partner Heung-Min Son closes out the list of the top ten highest-paid forwards in the Premier League with his £192,000 per week contract that will expire in June 2025.
Thanks to his great weak foot abilities, Son is one of the most lethal forwards in the Premier League. His partnership with Kane is among the best in the history of the league as the two hold the record for most goal combinations by a duo of teammates.
