Top 10 Highest Earners in Serie A: Juventus Domination

Although Serie A is not exactly the richest league at the moment, the big boys – especially Juventus and Inter – have been able to lure some superstars by offering them some decent wages.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the Bianconeri have five representatives within the Top 10 list of highest earners, including Cristiano Ronaldo who’s on a world of its own when it comes to wages.

The Portuguese earns no less than 31 million euros per season as net wages. The second on the list is his young teammate Matthijs de Ligt with 8 millions.

The rest of the list is composed from players who earn between 7 and 7.5 millions.

The men in question are Juve’s Paulo Dybala, Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot, Inter’s Christian Erkisen, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, whilst Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Eden Dzeko are the sole representatives of Milan and Roma respectively.

Here’s the full list:

1. Cristiano Ronaldo 31 million
2. Matthijs de Ligt 8 million
3. Christian Eriksen 7.5 million
3. Romelu Lukaku 7.5 million
3. Edin Dzeko 7.5 million
6. Paulo Dybala 7.3 million
7.Alexis Sanchez 7 million
7. Aaron Ramsey 7 million
7. Adrien Rabiot 7 million
7. Zlatan Ibrahimovic 7 million

The curious fact revealed by the list above is the complete absence of Italian players. So who are the best paid Azzurri stars?

Another report from TMW reveals the answer, and surprisingly, none of the Top 3 play in Serie A.

The highest earner among Italian players is Paris Saint Germain midfielder Marco Verratti with 11 millions euros.

The second on the list is former Juventus striker Sebastian Giovinco who earns 10 millions at KSA club Al-Hilal, whilst the third is Chelsea’s Jorginho who’s on 6.5 millions net wages.

Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is the first Serie A player to appear on the list, as he sits 4th with 6 million euros.
