After the recent transfer window, the league’s previous top earner Alexis Sanchez left England to join Serie A side Inter Milan on loan.

As a consequence, his former United teammate David de Gea has now moved into the top spot. He is believed to earn a massive £375 000 (R6.8 million) before tax per week, according to capology.com.

De Gea is followed by Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne and Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil, who both pocket around £350 000 (R6.3 million) gross per week.
