The new 2021/22 Premier League season has already started, as it was followed by the round of exciting signings and new contracts.
The summer transfer deadline was closed on August 31 and we can finally take a look at the new squads of the English clubs.
Surprising summer deals included the return of Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United and Chelsea respectively, as well as the record-breaking signing of Jack Grealish from Aston Villa to Manchester City.
The Premier League is expected to dominate in Europe again this season, with the biggest stars of world football.
However, these superstars also require highest salaries, and we’ll take a look at the list of highest paid Premier League players for the newly-started 2021/22 season.
The Manchester United midfielder is one of the highly rated players in his position, as he became record-breaking signing back in 2016, when he joined from Juventus.
Pogba is always on pressure to provide perfect displays, which he recently did against Leeds, assisting four times.
Considering his high salary, he’s always expected to give 100%, which he will surely do after deciding to stay at the Old Trafford this summer.
Pogba’s France compatriot Kante shares the same salary as him. The Chelsea star has not once impressed with his mind-blowing performances for the Blues, helping them win the most desirable Champions League trophy last season.
Kante is one of the most essential players at the Thomas Tuchel’s squad, which is looking to win the Premier League title this season.
Sterling is one of the top earners at Manchester City, with £300,000 per week salary. The England international is still enduring a tough time at City, with little game time since last season.
However, this summer Sterling became essential for the Three Lions to reach to the Euro 2020 final, scoring three goals and assisting once, which might change Pep Guardiola’s mind to give him more game time.
