David de Gea may be going through something of a rocky spell in terms of form, but the Manchester United goalkeeper can console himself knowing that he has a weekly take home pay significantly higher than the rest of his Premier League counterparts.

The Spain international earns a weekly salary of £375,000 according to Spotrac, an online sports team and player contract website.

Manchester City pair Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are second and third on the list, with the Belgian pocketing a weekly salary of £320,833 and England forward Sterling banking a nice round £300,000.

Manchester United have three more players to round up the top 10 with Paul Pogba (fourth), Anthony Martial (sixth) and Marcus Rashford all on high-earning contracts.

Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is in fifth place on £268,750 a week while arguably the three best strikers in the league – Sergio Aguero, Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane – rounding off the top 10.

Tottenham’s Tanguy Ndombele is also in the top 10.
