Pogba earns less than average Premier League player


The French midfielder has made headlines since his move to Juventus, but his salary continues to shrink in comparison to the big-money leagues  Paul Pogba earns less than the average salary in

the cash-rich Premier League, new figures have


The Juventus star is considered to be one of the

jewels in the Italian league’s crown on the back of

two fantastic seasons in the famous black and

white stripes following his move from Manchester


However, the France international has regularly

been touted for a potential big-money exit from

Juventus Stadium, and figures recently published

by La Gazzetta dello Sport give one indication as

to why Pogba may wish to move on soon.

The 21-year-old has three years left to run on his

current Juventus contract, but his deal in Turin

entitles him to a gross salary of €1.5 million per

year, which means he earns less than 14 of his

team-mates. His deal also pales in comparison

with figures paid to the best players in some of

the more wealthy leagues in the world.

What’s more, figures released this summer

quoted the average wage of a Premier League

player in England to have been €2m in 2012-13,

with projections suggesting salaries have

markedly increased in the past 12 months.

Radamel Falcao joined Manchester United earlier

this month on a loan deal from Monaco which is

set to earn him a €22.5m over the course of one

season, a sensational 1500% mark-up on Pogba’s

Juve deal.

Daniele De Rossi comes in top of Serie A’s earners

for a second successive year thanks to his €6.5m

Roma deal. The Italy midfielder’s salary is worth

more than newly-promoted Cesena’s entire wage
