We have been released from our financial restraints in recent seasons, with Arsene Wenger free to sign players such as Mesut Özil and Alexis Sanchez. We have also been freed from our somewhat restrictive wage structure, meaning we now find ourselves among the top 10 highest paying football clubs in the world (via talkSPORT).
Check out the list below to find out who else makes the list of highest average wage paid:
10) Juventus – £54,985
There is significantly less money in Serie A, but the Scudetto winners still manager to claw their way into this list. With a number of top quality players on their books, they are still able to challenge in Europe.
9) Liverpool – £67,486
Liverpool still have big club delusions, and continue to act like they are regulars in the Champions League. They are no longer able to attract the biggest players, but still pay big player wages.
