De Gea, Alisson, Kepa: How much money do Premier League goalkeepers earn per-week?

Dean Henderson and David de Gea in action for Man United

David de Gea has had his struggles in the past few years.

The Spaniard was once the best goalkeeper in the world but that is no longer the case after he made a number of howlers for both club and country.

Despite his poor form, Man United decided to give De Gea an eye-watering £375,000-per-week contract last summer.

But how does that compare to the rest of the goalkeepers in the Premier League?

Using information provided by Spotrac, We've listed the top 25 highest earning goalkeepers in England's top tier for the 2020/21 season.

25. Lee Grant - £30,000-per-week

24. Kiko Casilla - £32,115-per-week

23. Sam Johnstone - £32,500-per-week

=20. Mathew Ryan - £35,000-per-week

=20. Nick Pope - £35,000-per-week 

The biggest surprise here is Burnley's Pope is 'only' on £35,000-per-week.

He's now arguably England's best goalkeeper so you wouldn't be surprised to see him given a pay-rise in the near future.

Grant is one of four Man United goalkeepers that make the top 25.

=20. Willy Caballero - £35,000-per-week

19. Martin Dubravka - £38,000-per-week

18. Wayne Hennessey - £40,000-per-week

17. Tom Heaton - £42,000-per-week

16. Fabri - £45,000-per-week

Dubravka has shone since joining Newcastle, so you could argue he's in line for a pay-rise.

Fulham are paying Fabri £45,000-per-week, despite him making just two appearances for the club in two years.

15. Alex McCarthy - £50,000-per-week

14. Vicente Guaita - £60,000-per-week

=12. Lukasz Fabianski - £65,000-per-week

=12. Ederson - £65,000-per-week

=10. Fraser Forster - £70,000-per-week

Ederson being in 12th is a real shock given he's one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

Forster is earning more than the Brazilian, despite him only being second choice at Southampton.

10. Sergio Romero - £70,000-per-week

9. Alisson Becker - £90,000-per-week

=5. Rui Patricio - £100,000-per-week

=5. Hugo Lloris - £100,000-per-week

=5. Dean Henderson - £100,000-per-week

Even Romero, who is fourth choice at United, earns more than Ederson.

There have been reports that Alisson and Liverpool are in talks over a new contract. He certainly deserves one.

He earns even less than Henderson, who was handed a huge new contract by United earlier this year.

=5. Bernd Leno - £100,000-per-week

4. Jordan Pickford - £100,160-per-week

3. Kasper Schmeichel - £130,000-per-week

2. Kepa Arrizabalaga - £150,000-per-week

1. David de Gea - £375,000-per-week

It's fair to say that Kepa's performances do not reflect how much he is being paid.

Remarkably, De Gea gets £225,000-per-week more than any other goalkeeper in the league.
