Football players are one of the highest-earning individuals in the world. In the Premier League, teams there have enough resources to pay the highest of wages in world football. Taking a look at the wage structure of the teams in the Premier League, we found that of Chelsea.
In this article, we have put together a list of the highest earning players in the Chelsea team under Thomas Tuchel. Recall that the manger joined mid-season, following a bad run of poor performances and results.
Since his appointment, however, the fortune of the team changed. In their last match of the season, they beat Manchester City for the third time in the year to win their second UEFA Champions League trophy.
Before the commencement of the season, several players we brought in. Players like Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Thiago, Ben Chilwell and later Édouard Mendy were added to the team. New players mean new deals. But who earns the highest at Chelsea? Let’s take a look at the highest paid Chelsea players under Tuchel.
10. At the tenth spot are a host of Chelsea stars who earn the same amount of money at the club. These players include Olivier Giroud, Jorginho, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Thiago Silva. The four players earn £110,000-a-week at Chelsea.
9. Malanga Sarr
Malanga Sarr earns 130k pounds per week at Chelsea. The player joins the Blues last. Although, he hasn’t featured for them like the other guys signed at that same period, he has a place on the 10 highest earners list.
8. Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Next on the list is youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi who earns a 120k pounds per week wage. He pockets about 6.2 million pounds yearly at Chelsea.
7. Kai Havertz.
Havertz joined Chelsea last summer after a brilliant season with Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga. The attacking midfield hasn’t lived up to the billing at the moment, but he scored the goal that enures that Chelsea win the Champions League last month.
Upon his arrival at Stamford Bridge, he signed a 140k pounds wage contract with the Blues. With that amount, he will be paid around 7.2 million pounds yearly.
6. N’Golo Kante.
N’Golo Kanté is probably the most important Chelsea player at the moment. The French international is one player who in our opinion is earning less than he is worth. Kante is probably the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League at the moment.
At Chelsea, Kanté earns 144k pounds weekly. This equates to about 7.4 million pounds per year. Recall that the player was signed after his brilliant performances for Leicester City in 2016, when they won the Premier League.

kepa earns 150k pounds per week. He is the fourth highest paid Chelsea player at the moment. Although, he has lost his starting spot to Benjamin Mendy, his earning hasn’t been affected.
3. Christian Pulisic
The United States of America star player is the third highest paid player in the Chelsea team. Pulisic is paid 158k per week at Chelsea. Per annum, he earns about 8.2 million.
