Ronaldo, De Bruyne, no Salah: Premier League's best-paid XI as Man City confirm Haaland deal

Erling Haaland will feature in the Premier League's highest-paid XI once his move to Man City is completed

Manchester City announced on Tuesday afternoon that they have agreed a deal with Borussia Dortmund for Erling Haaland.

Their statement read: “Manchester City can confirm we have reached an agreement in principle with Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of striker Erling Haaland to the Club on 1st July 2022.

“The transfer remains subject to the Club finalising terms with the player.”

Haaland has already established himself as one of the best players in world football and City will pay him as such.

According to the Times, Haaland has signed a long-term deal worth a cool £400,000 a week.

That will put him among the Premier League’s highest-paid players.

Once the deal for Haaland is completed, Man City will have four players in the Premier League’s highest-paid XI, with the Norwegian joining Stones, De Bruyne and Grealish.

Manchester United also have four representatives (De Gea, Varane, Sancho and Ronaldo).

Chelsea have two (Chilwell and Kante), while only one Liverpool player makes the XI (Alexander-Arnold).

Some of the biggest stars in the Premier League don’t make the XI, including Virgil van Dijk (£220,000-a-week), Mohamed Salah (£200,000-a-week) and Harry Kane (£200,000-a-week).

Salah is after a new contract and could force his way into the Premier League’s highest-paid XI should Liverpool decide to meet his demands.
