Highest-Paid Chelsea Players
Now let’s have a look at the highest-paid Chelsea players in 2022-23.
Raheem Sterling has worn the Red for Liverpool, Sky Blue for Man City, and now the little-sized winger will wear Blue for Chelsea. The forward has put pen to the paper to sign for Chelsea. The Blues lured him from league rival Man City. He joined the London-based club on a 5-year deal. And the deal has made him the highest-paid Chelsea player of the season straightway. The England international will charge 325k British Pound per week for his services at Stamford Bridge. His annual income will be as much as 16.9 million GBP. With such an enormous figure of salary, he also became one of the highest-paid players in the English top flight. In his 5 years at the Bridge, he will bag more than 80 million Pounds.
Another new signing to feature among the highest-earning players in the club. The Senegal national team skipper has joined the Blues from Napoli in the summer transfer window of 2022-23. He has signed on a deal that will last 4 years and will keep him at Stamford Bridge till June 2026. Koulibaly became the 2nd highest-earning player in Chelsea following Raheem Sterling. The center-half will receive a weekly salary of 295 thousand pounds. At the end of the year, his total bagging from wage fee will be £15.34 million.
N’Golo Kante is quite like the heart in the Chelsea midfield. The World Cup winner with France joined the Blues for the Foxes of Leicester. Since then he has won a number of trophies with the Blues. The defensive midfielder has established himself as a crucial part of this Chelsea squad. No doubt, he is deservingly among the top-earning members of this Chelsea side. He currently occupies the 3rd spot among the club’s top-earning stars. Kante who just has a year left in his contract will keep bagging 290k British Pound a week till June 30, 2023. His annual income from the wage fee is just a tad over £15m Pounds (£15.05 million). With his future being unknown, only time can say where the French midfielder will be playing next season.
Perhaps, a surprising name is on the upper part of the chart. Reece James is a very very useful player. Although he mainly serves as a right-back, he is also crucial during the attacks. With a venomous speed, he can handle both defense and attack at the very same time. James is also among the club’s top 10 earners. The English international pockets a weekly wage fee of £250k. So, at the end of the year, his total income from his salary stands at 13 million Pounds. James has 6 more years left in the contract including the ongoing campaign. If he fulfills his contract with Blues, he will take a total of 78 million pound home in these 6 years.
Yet another new signing to feature among the highest-paid Chelsea players. French defender Wesley Fofana has joined the Bohely-owned club from Leicester City. He has signed a 6-year lengthy contract which will see him grab 200k GBP per week for his services at his new club. He used to own something around 50-51 thousand pounds per week at Leicester. So according to the sources, his salary has gone up almost 4 times. And yes, very few can argue that the alluded defender doesn’t deserve his new sum of salary. He is a dedicated footballer and has come such a long way through his hard work and dedication.
Ben Chilwell, the English left-back is also among the top 10 earners at Chelsea. His current contract helps him earn a very handsome 190k pound salary each week. So at the end of the year, his bagging becomes approximately 9.88 million Pound which is just below the 10 million mark. Chilwell’s contract will keep him at the Bridge till June 30, 2025.
