Kevin De Bruyne is Manchester City’s highest earner, taking home a salary of £18.2m, which is nearly as much as Bernardo Silva (£7.8m-a-year), Riyad Mahrez (£6.24m-a-year) and Leroy Sane’s wages (£4.68m-a-year) combined.

It’s more than twice the salary of Fernandinho (£7.8m-a-year) too, but how does it compare with the rest of the Manchester City squad?

Where will Manchester City finish this season?

  • Ederson Moraes (£3.38m-a-year/£65k-per-week)
  • Jack Harrison (£2.65m-a-year/£50k-per-week)
  • Oleksandr Zinchenko* (£2.6m-a-year/ £50k-per-week)
  • Marlos Moreno (£2.34m-a-year/£45k-per-week)
  • Philippe Sandler (£1.98m-a-year/£38k-per-week)
  • Phil Foden* (£1.52m-a-year/£30k-per-week)
  • Tosin Adarabioyo (£1.56m-a-year/£30k-per-week)

Based on the findings, the average first-team wage at City is £5.8m-a-year/£111k-per-week. The Sky Blues have 13 players on £100k-per-week or more but still haven’t come close to Liverpool.

After winning the Premier League last season, City spent £150m over the summer and have gone backwards when looking at results. It’s unlikely Pep Guardiola’s men will defend their title, but they’re still in with a chance of winning three trophies – Champions League, FA Cup, EFL Cup.
