Cristiano Ronaldo (£510,000 p/w)
Unsurprisingly, Cristiano Ronaldo became the highest earner in the Premier League by some distance after making his sensational return to Manchester United last summer. Ronaldo was Man City-bound as Jorge Mendes pushed for a move, but United arrived in the 11th hour to snatch him from their rivals’ grasp.
The 37-year-old icon earns a mouth-watering £510,000 per week at Old Trafford, and somewhat rightly so as he’s saved United from further humiliation this season. Ronaldo has scored 24 goals in 38 appearances since his return, 14 more than the club’s next highest scorer.
