Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero did not have a great season in 2017/18 due to injuries. However, the Argentine forward still netted 30 goals in 39 matches. This is the reason why he is the second best-paid player at Etihad. The attacker takes home £220,000 per week. There are reports that Raheem Sterling is set to be offered £300,000 per week long-term deal but nothing has been confirmed yet.

Manchester United paid £75 million to sign Romelu Lukaku from Everton in 2017 and he delivered the goals in his first season. The Belgian netted 27 goals in 51 appearances. This was a great return in his first year at Old Trafford. This season so far, he is struggling to score goals but every striker goes through a drought. Jose Mourinho must find a way to help him score goals once again.

Manchester City won the Premier League in 2017/18 season. The team had many players who could be recognized for their contribution. However, special mention has to go to playmaker Kevin De Bruyne who assisted 16 goals. The Belgian international vision on the pitch is out of this world. It is the reason why he is the best-paid player in the team. He takes home £280,000 per week. This season injuries are threatening his contribution but it was expected after a busy summer with Belgium in the World Cup.
4. Paul Pogba- £290,000 per week
Manchester United playmaker Paul Pogba continues to earn £290,000 per week despite not delivering as expected. The Frenchman continues to be criticized by fans, former players and pundits for concentrating too much on his hairstyles among other shenanigans more than his football. However, Jose Mourinho still has faith in him which is crucial.
