Top 10 Highest Paid Footballers in Spanish La Liga 2023
Here is the list of the top 10 highest paid footballers in Spanish La Liga by their annual wage.
10. Jan Oblak Salary (Atletico Madrid, €400,577)
Atletico Madrid can’t compete with the European elite for the absolute top-tier wages, but they tend to remunerate their most important figures handsomely.
Take Diego Simeone, one of the top-earning managers in world football. Oblak wasn’t at his best last season at Atleti put up a meek title defence, but he looked unbeatable in their 2020-21 La Liga-winning campaign and for many years before that.
On his day, one of the best goalkeepers in the world and deservedly paid as such.
10. Jordi Alba Salary (Barcelona, €400,577)
Reports from Spain indicated the left-back was furious Barcelona made an attempt to offload him to Inter without his knowledge.
It’s no surprise, given he’s paid a fair whack to turn out for his boyhood club. Why would he want to go anywhere?
10. Antoine Griezmann Salary (Atletico Madrid, €400,577)
Of course the highest-paid player in Atletico Madrid’s squad is on loan from Barcelona. And, of course, it’s a player they sold to their La Liga rivals for €120million a couple of years back.
Atletico will reportedly be obligated to buy the France international if he plays 45 minutes in half of the games he’s available to them.
So far this season he’s been introduced as a substitute after 60 minutes in every game so far.
7.Toni Kroos Salary
He’s been delivering Rolls Royce performances for many years, helping Real Madrid to many pieces of silver.
And so to know that the club agreed to a contract extension of $422,000 each week three years ago seems rather a good deal all round.
6. David Alaba Salary
The new Real Madrid versatile defender was brought in on a free transfer from Bayern Munich and so there’s no surprise that he’s on a decent whack.
$433,000 was nicely negotiated by his agent, making him the club’s third highest.
5. Karim Benzema Salary
If the number I’m about to quote was “one billion dollars” (add Dr Evil voiceover) then you could argue that it still wasn’t enough for the French striker.
Some thought he could never step up to the mark after Ronaldo left, but he absolutely has done, and more.
Nearly $462,000 per week is paid back in spades with his important goals for Los Blancos.
4. Eden Hazard Salary
It’s just not worked out for the former Chelsea winger who lit up the Premier League week in, week out.
Well, not in a Real Madrid shirt anyway, in his bank account things are just peachy for the Belgian, pocketing just over $600,000 per week. And he has two more seasons secured on that!
3. Sergio Busquets Salary
He may be 34, but the Barça captain has had a nice final (we’ll see, but I think so) contract with the club, ending in 2023.
Around $712,000 maybe as a thanks for all those glory years that came before.
2. Frenkie de Jong Salary
In the summer it looked as though he was definitely on his way out of the Camp Nou, with Manchester United waiting with open arms, two clubs that love a bit of debt.
But then again, with $720,000 lining his pockets every seven days, the sunny Catalan climate, and a growing sense of purpose under Xavi’s new project, the transfer window closed with now change.
1. Gerard Piqué Salary
Coming in at number one in the wallet fillers is the relative veteran of the Barça defence.
Before the former (and questionable in financial savviness) club president departed, Josep Bartomeu made sure that one of his captains (and the others above) was well rewarded for his services, handing him a weekly wage of $1 million.
So, now that you know the eye-watering amounts of cash being thrust in the direction of these players, you may wan to grab your kid and run to the nearest park.
And if you think that’s a lot, you may want to check out the story below about the world’s top earners.
