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
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
