Liverpool has signed up goalkeeper Alisson Becker to a fresh deal that will see the shot-stopper stay at Anfield for the next 6 years. The new deal also comes with a massive increase in the Brazil Number 1 wages as a reward for his outstanding performance since his move from Roma.
The burly goalkeeper will now earn £150,000 weekly (£7.8m annually), significantly up from his former wages of £90,000 (£4.68m annually). This will automatically put him within the top 5 highest-earning goalkeepers in the Premier League and also place him in the top 5 highest-earning players in Liverpool.
The highest-earning goalkeeper in the Premier League is Manchester United's David de Gea who goes home with a whopping £375,000 weekly (£19.5m annual). Coming a distant second is Chelsea's Kepa Arrizabalaga who earns £150,000 weekly (£7.8m annual) for his troubles at Stamford Bridge. With Alisson's new deal, he would become joint-second with Kepa on the same salary.
Leicester City's Kasper Schmeichel is the 3rd-highest earner amongst goalkeepers in the Premier League with £130,000 weekly (£6.76m annual). Everton's Jordan Pickford earns just £160 more than Arsenal's Bernd Leno with the England No 1 earning a decent £100,160 weekly (£5.208m annual). German goalkeeper, Leno earns £100,000 weekly (£5.2m annually) to round off the top 5 highest-earning goalkeepers in the Premier League.
