The 10 Highest-Paid Chelsea Stars In 2018/19

There were a few incomings and outgoings at Chelsea in the transfer window, while it appears the Blues will keep hold of superstar Eden Hazard. As such, here are the 10 best earners at the Stamford Bridge club for the 2018/19 season.

Click through the gallery above to see who the 10 best earners at Chelsea this season, and how much they get paid a week, are, according to Total Sportek.

Chelsea have begun the season confidently under new manager Maurizio Sarri, winning both of their opening games, against Huddersfield Town and Arsenal.

The boss has lured the likes of Jorginho, Kepa Arrizabalaga and Mateo Kovacic to the club in the window, although the latter will return to Real Madrid at the end of the campaign. 

A few players also made their way out of the club over the past two months, with goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois arguably being the biggest name to hit the exit doors. 

A few changes have been made to Chelsea's highest earners list as a result of the transfer movements, but Belgium winger Hazard remains the best-paid player at the club on £200 000 (R3.6 million) a week, while the second-best earner at the Blues is new signing Arrizabalaga, on a weekly wage of £192 000 (R3.5 million). 

Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas is third with £156 000 (R2.8 million) a week, followed by former Napoli star Jorginho on £150 000 (R2.7 million). The Italy international has made a good impression since arriving in London after deciding to link up with Sarri again in England. 

Striker Alvaro Morata, who scored against Arsenal on Saturday, is believed to earn £140 000 (R2.5 million) every week at the club, while sixth is experienced defender Gary Cahill with a weekly salary of £130 000 (R2.4 million). 

Right-back Cesar Azpilicueta earns £120 000 (R2.2 million) weekly at Chelsea, and N'Golo Kante, Willian and Olivier Giroud all reportedly get paid the same wage.

There have been reports that Kante could soon be made one of the club's highest earners following his terrific performances for France at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which attracted interest from the likes of Real and FC Barcelona.
