Istanbul, TURKEY – June 10, 2023: Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City FC

=9. Kevin De Bruyne – £400,000 per week

Despite competing in the self-proclaimed wealthiest league globally, De Bruyne stands as the sole Premier League player to grace this comprehensive compilation, which is quite astonishing. His earnings amount to a staggering £400,000 per week, a figure earned while representing the reigning champions of England. However, this remarkable sum only secures him a joint-ninth position on the aforementioned list.

=9. Marcelo Brozovic – £400,000 per week

Brozovic, who is currently competing for Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia, receives a higher salary than Luka Modric does while playing for Real Madrid. It is widely known that Saudi clubs offer lucrative contracts to their top players, and Brozovic is just one example of a Saudi Pro League player who benefits from this trend.

8. Toni Kroos – £403,000 per week

Set to finally hang up his boots at the end of the tournament. In Madrid, Kroos has won twenty-one trophies, including four La Liga titles and five UEFA Champions League titles, three of which he won consecutively from 2016 to 2018.

7. Aymeric Laporte – £405,000 per week

Laporte signed a contract with Al Nassr, a Saudi Pro League team, on 24th August 2023, for a transfer fee of £23.6 million but is quite vocal about the level of dissatisfaction amongst players within the Saudi Pro League, complaining that playing every three days is exhausting!

=4. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic – £414,000 per week

Milinkovic-Savic, who recently secured the league title with Al-Hilal, is likely to be in high morale as he prepares to travel to Germany this summer. With an annual income of £21.5 million, his financial situation is undoubtedly prosperous.

Ngolo Kante of Chelsea gets away from Jean Michael Seri of Fulham.

=4. N’Golo Kante – £414,000 per week

It was somewhat unexpected when Didier Deschamps made the decision to bring Kante back into the France squad, but we fully support it. Although he may not be performing at his absolute best, the former Chelsea stars’ expertise in the latter part of the competition could be extremely beneficial. Despite not having the greatest season with Al-Ittihad, we are eagerly anticipating his return to the grand stage.

=4. Aleksandar Mitrovic – £414,000 per week

Back to the mega bucks of the Saudi Pro League. The 29 year old Serbian striker is currently playing for Al-Hilal. Previous spells at Partizan, Anderlecht, Newcastle United and Fulham have cemented his place as one of the all time great Serbian strikers.

3. Robert Lewandowski – £448,000 per week

The Polish talisman Lewandowski may not be operating at the pinnacle of his abilities anymore, but he certainly possesses the skill to score goals consistently. Last season with Barcelona, he managed to net 26 goals in various competitions, showcasing his proficiency in front of goal. Unfortunately, the 35-year-old sustained an injury during Poland’s recent match against Turkey, leading to his early substitution in the first half. Hopefully, he will recuperate in time for the upcoming tournament.

2. Kylian Mbappe – £1.2million per week

World cup winner and Parisan, Mbappé is set to earn a yearly salary ranging from €15m (£12.8m) to €20m (£17m), which will increase annually. Additionally, he will be granted a signing-on bonus of €125m (£106.5m) that will be distributed over the course of five years. Furthermore, he will receive 80% of his image rights.

1. Cristiano Ronaldo – £3.3million per week

Ronaldo not only holds the title of the highest-paid player at Euro 2024, but he also stands as the top-earning footballer in the entire world of football presently. Al-Nassr FC #7 pay Ronaldo, an annual salary exceeding £170 million, the former Real Madrid and Manchester United player, it comes as no surprise that he has no intentions of retiring in the near future.
