Highest-paid Premier League Players 2023-24: Haaland, Salah, Rashford & More

Last Updated: March 1, 2024
From Manchester’s archrivals to the biggest bags in London, find out who stands alone atop the Premier League salary mountain this season.

The Saudi Pro League is making major money moves. Devotees will remember when the Chinese Super League did the same thing in 2016. But no matter where the financial winds are blowing hardest and loudest in a given moment, England’s Premier League still stands alone as the richest domestic competition in the world’s most popular sport.

On Forbes’ 2023 list of the most valuable clubs on Earth, England claims six of the top 10 — no other nation has more than two. Five of the 10 largest verified player transfer fees of all time have been paid by Premier League clubs. The nation boasts three of the last five UEFA Champions League winners, as well as three of the last five runners-up.

That got us thinking about just how all this success and global renown has translated to financial bottom lines not at the league or club level, but in terms of individual players themselves. So, who gets to claim the title of No. 1 player salary in England’s top flight?

Check out our definitive ranking of the highest-paid Premier League players of 2023-24 below.
