English Premier League is one of the most important soccer leagues in the world and features many of the best players in the world. Stars like Mohamed Salah, Virgil Van Dijk, Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Agüero, or Harry Kane are playing every weekend in it. Apart from them, there are other names who have top three salaries in the tournament.

Belgium’s De Bruyne arrived to Manchester City for 2015-16 season after signing from German Bundesliga’s Wolfsburg. He was bought for $92 million. As per Spotrac, his annual salary is over €18 million euros, around $22.75 million.

Fancy having a goalkeeper in the list? Well, we have one, and its Spain national team’s David De Gea who joins De Bruyne on the podium. He’s about to celebrate 10 years playing for Manchester United after the English side bought him for $30.25 million in 2011. Now, he is paid $26.65 million per year.

After a not-so-successful return to Tottenham Hotspur, Wales’ Gareth Bale still can enjoy having the biggest salary in the English Premier League. The 31-year-old winger perceives €35.2 million, which equal $42.6 million per year.
