The Global Sports Salaries Survey for 2017/18 has been published. The top six average players' annual salaries for clubs in the EPL were :-

Man Utd - £6.535m
Man City - £5.993m
Chelsea - £5.020m
L'pool - £4.863m
Arsenal - £4.853m
Spurs - £3.516m

By contrast Barcelona's average was £10.454m, Real Madrid's was £8.090m and Juventus's was £6.726m. The overall average in the EPL is 36% higher than in La Liga and double the average in Serie A.

There seems to be a big gap between the top six or seven and the rest developing.
Liverpool must be wondering how they can topple City.
City are wondering why Liverpool are still on level points with them. Both unbeaten and teams below them only lost one game explains the bottom six below 10 points.

If you only turn up to moan then do it elsewhere

what's mind boggling about that is you have to remind yourself that's the averages for 1 player in a year. More than the turnover of most clubs in Scotland for an entire year.

football has gone mad.

But, but, but.... Man U have the biggest budget.

They should be top of the league and they're not even in the top 4.

That Mourinho's a clown, I won't be back at Old Trafford until he's sacked. All real Man U fans should stay away from OT until that tactically clueless eejit is away.

It's the only way Woodward and Co. will pay any attention, otherwise they'll be quite happy to settle for mid table mediocrity and a half decent run in the FA Cup.

I mean, half of old Trafford could probably not attend the next game and demand is probably high enough to still nearly fill it. Man U have an enormous support. Desperate for Jose to get punted though, absolutely sick to death of overflowing the left wing, never playing half those players and his beyond negative tactics. Bloody Ashley young as starting full back is embarrassing

If I'm right that article doesn't include players bonuses.

I think City have a system where they pay around 85% to 90% of what is considered the top rate in the EPL but then incentivise success so that earnings could be as high as 125% of the top rate if they win everything.

Not sure what the other clubs do for bonus payments although I don't think United have been overly worried about that recently :-)

That's the smart way to do it, lpf. In the late 70s/early 80s, when Juventus provided almost the entire national starting XI and we're domestically dominant, the squad's basic wage in Serie A, but bonuses were structured such that they could make as much as double the amount players on the highest basic were earning.

It works. You have to wonder why more clubs don't explore such a strategy.

Didn't we used to have win and appearance bonuses not so long ago?

From what I believe it was appearance, and so much per point, I think that there was also money for scoring.

By way of a postscript to the opening post the average salary at Bayern Munich last season was £6.28m and at PSG was £6.106m.

The average annual salary in the English Premiership was £2.990m and in the Scottish Premiership was £176,236. The annual averages for the 12 clubs now in the SPL were:-

Celtic - £856,614
Rangers - £466,556
Aberdeen - £138,667

I think they only cover the top league in each country, GGR.

I'm surprised that Hamilton is bigger than Motherwell. I assume that St Mirren and Livingston were championship salaries from last season.

I’m sure I read somewhere that all prem clubs could play in empty stadiums for a season and still make a profit due to the tv deal alone.
