Man United icon Cristiano Ronaldo is unsurprisingly the top earner, with the five-time Ballon d'Or winner currently pocketing £480,000-a-week.

According to SunSport, there are already seven other players receiving more than the £300k per week wages Salah is looking at.
But should Liverpool meet his demands, he would become the joint eighth-highest earner in the Premier League.
Among the players he would join in the bracket include Man City playmaker Kevin de Bruyne and Man United duo of David de Gea and Jadon Sancho.

Liverpool legend predicts when Man United will sack Solskjaer as manager
Briefly News earlier reported that former Liverpool star Didi Hamann has said he expects Man United to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager 'soon.'
Solskjaer has found himself on the receiving end in recent days after United recording a number of unconvincing results across competitions.
The Red Devils are winless in three Premier League matches, suffering a shock home defeat to Aston Villa before they followed up that result with a 1-1 draw against Everton at the weekend.
