Highest Paid EPL Stars After Coutinho Extension

Manchester United and Manchester City stars dominate our highest paid Premier League players update, while Philippe Coutinho does not even make the top 10 despite becoming Liverpool's top earner.

Click through the gallery to see the 14 highest paid Premier League players, and their weekly wages.

The 24-year-old extended his contract with the Reds on Wednesday and is now reportedly the club's highest paid player, with weekly wages of £150 000 (R2.5 million).

Overall, he now sits in joint 13th place, which he shares with Chelsea's Diego Costa. John Terry (£160 000, R2.7 million), Kevin De Bruyne and Cesc Fabregas (both £170 000, R2.9 million) sit in the places 12 to 10.

Raheem Sterling is one of four City players in the top 10, pocketing £180 000 (R3 million) a week. His teammate David Silva shares the seventh spot with David De Gea, both of whom are on £200 000 (R3.4 million) weekly, while Eden Hazard is the highest paid Chelsea star on £220 000 (R3.7 million).

Yaya Toure is the only African among the league's top earners, receiving £240 000 (R4 million) a week at City, which makes him the joint top earner in Pep Guardiola's side, along with striker Sergio Aguero.

The duo are only beaten by three rivals from across town. Zlatan Ibrahimovic sits in third place on £250 000 (R4.2 million), Wayne Rooney in second with £260 000 (R4.4 million) and Paul Pogba is the top earner in England's top flight with £290 000 (R4.9 million) per week.
