These are the highest earners in the French Ligue 1
French media reports have published the salaries of Ligue 1 players. Though the top 10 players are all from the same team, the 11th one is the first non-PSG player.
Wissam Ben-Yedder is on the 11th spot and is the first non-PSG player after the top 10. We could say it either in the Ligue 1 or PSG.
Here are the highest salary earners in Ligue 1 annually:
- Neymar – €36.7M
- Kylian Mbappe – €25M
- Marquinhos – €14.4M
- Marco Verratti – €14.4M
- Angel Di Maria – €13.2M
- Keylor Navas – €12.0M
- Mauro Icardi – €9.6M
- Leandro Paredes
- Presnel Kimpembe
- Ander Herrera
All the top 10 players are from PSG. AS Monaco’s Ben-Yedder earns €7.8M annually and comes on 11th position after the Ligue 1 ruling PSG.
Neymar is truly a big earner. He is probably the third highest paid footballer after Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
