Highest-paid La Liga Players 2023-24: Modrić, Lewandowski, Vinicius & More

Last Updated: September 28, 2023
From the capital to Catalunya and beyond, find out who stands alone atop the La Liga salary mountain this season in Spanish football.

Spain may not be the center of the soccer universe anymore. Barcelona is no longer the core of the Spanish national team’s greatest era with an extra bonus named Lionel Messi, nor is Ronaldo a world-beater in white for Real Madrid, but fans of the Beautiful Game can still count on La Liga to bring the thrills.

Indeed, some things never change. But if you had to guess the most expensive player wage in the league now that those two age-old rivals have moved on — to say nothing of the Benzemas, Piqués, Bales, and Iniestas of the world — the correct answer might just surprise you.

So, who earns the most moneyed of distinctions this season? Let’s roll through Boardroom’s definitive ranking of the highest-paid La Liga players for 2023-24 below.
