Mane outside PL top 20 highest-paid

News

Sadio Mane finished fourth in the 2019 Ballon d'Or, won the African Player of the Year, helped Liverpool to Premier League success but remains outside the top 20 highest-paid in England.

Mane, 28, has developed into one of the leading forwards in world football since joining Liverpool from domestic rivals Southampton in June 2016 in a deal worth a reported £34-million.

The Senegal captain was believed to have signed a £100,000-a-week contract over five-years but his impressive form quickly earned him an increase in 2018 which bumped him to £150,000-a-week.

While the figures quickly ranked him as one of Liverpool's highest-earners within their wage structure at the time, several of the English top-flight stars outearn the reigning CAF African Footballer of the Year.

On his current earnings, he's on par with Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, Manchester City dup Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho.

The top 10 earners in England mark the elite superstars, however, there are a few surprising inclusions like Anthony Martial of Manchester United who's on a staggering £250,000-a-week after his new deal in January this year.

He's joined by teammates Paul Pogba and David de Gea, while Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero also feature with salaries between the £250,000 to £320,000-a-week region which can be seen in the gallery above.

Out-of-favour Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil, Mohamed Salah and Tottenham captain Harry Kane round off the list with Alexandre Lacazette narrowly missing out with his £182,051-a-week package before tax.
