The 20 Teams With the Highest Wage Bills in the World of Football

As reported by the Mail on Sunday, the biggest football wage bills have been calculated to reveal which team spends the most on paying its players each week.

Premier League clubs dominate the top 20 more than any other league, so let’s take a look at which teams feature…

20. Valencia – £2.4m per week

19. Leicester City – £2.5m per week

18. Roma – £2.6m per week

17. Inter Milan – £2.6m per week

16. Borussia Dortmund – £2.7m per week

15. Everton – £2.8m per week

14. West Ham – £2.8m per week

13. AC Milan – £3.1m per week

12. Tottenham Hotspur – £3.1m per week

11. Liverpool – £3.6m per week

10. Atletico Madrid

Total wage bill per week: £3.8m

Moving into the top 10 this year, jumping three places to leapfrog both Liverpool and Spurs, Atletico Madrid’s wage bill has increased as a result of holding on to wanted men such as Antoine Griezmann, Saul Niguez and Koke. 

9. Arsenal

Total wage bill per week: £4m

Arsenal fans will actually be hoping that the Gunners’ place in this list will be significantly higher next year if it means that more lucrative deals for both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez can be agreed upon.

8. Chelsea

Total wage bill per week: £4.4m

Since Roman Abramovich’s arrival in west London, the Blues have never been shy from paying their stars extortionate wages and despite a changing of the guard at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea remain one of the biggest spenders in Europe.

7. Juventus

Total wage bill per week: £4.8m

By far the richest team in Italy, despite attempts to close the gap from both Milan clubs, the Old Lady ensure that some of the world’s best talent play their football in Turin by compensating the likes of Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain nicely.

6. Bayern Munich

Total wage bill per week: £5.2m

Germany’s version of Juventus, Bayern Munich have been dominating the Bundesliga in every sense of the word and their ability to pay the biggest wages has allowed them to steal the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Niklas Sule and Mats Hummels from their biggest rivals.

5. Manchester City

Total wage bill per week: £5.2m 

Just edging out the Bavarians into the top five, Manchester City have a plethora of world class talent at their disposal but it does take over £5m-a-week to keep all those stars employed by the Citizens. 

4. Manchester United

Total wage bill per week: £5.2m 

The Red Devils have actually dropped three places from the top spot since last year, as a result of the exits of both Wayne Rooney and Bastian Schweinsteiger, but they still have enough big names to warrant the title of the Premier League’s best paid team.

3. Real Madrid

Total wage bill per week: £6.2m

Up a place from last season, the reigning European champions have an enormous wage bill each week, with big earners like Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos and Gareth Bale remaining on Los Blancos’ books.

2. Paris Saint-Germain

Total wage bill per week: £6.5m

The biggest movers in the top 10, PSG have jumped five places following a frantic summer which saw the arrivals of both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe to enhance the Ligue 1 side’s reputation as a European superpower. 

1. Barcelona

Total wage bill per week: £6.6m

With an average wage of £126,875 a week, Barcelona are officially football’s best paid team and the recent news of Leo Messi’s contract extension has only reinforced the Catalan club’s policy of paying big bucks to their coveted stars.
