Who earns the most in the Spanish Primera Division?

top 10 highest salaries la liga

The Spanish La Liga is a league that features some of the biggest stars in international football. A league that features the Greatest Of All Time. 

But sadly also a league that grossly overpays some players. Join WTFoot and see who are the 10 highest paid players in Spain.

10. Toni Kroos

Toni Kroos

19.5 Million Pound – 17.3 Million Pound

You know that the Spanish Salaries are high when the number 10 in this list is already making the same as the highest paid player in the English Premier League

Toni has been at Real for several years now and he has become of the core players that helped them win 3 Champions Leagues in a row.

9. Sergio Ramos

Sergio Ramos

20 Million Euro – 17.7 Million Pound

El Capitan. The captain of Real Madrid obviously also has one of the highest salaries at the Spanish Giants. 

The centre back is the true leader of the club and if you ask us, he deserves every penny of his massive salary. 

8. Jan Oblak

Jan Oblak

20.8 Million Euro – 18.3 Million Pound

The man in goal for Atleti for what already feels like an eternity. According to many experts, he is the best goalkeeper in the world right now and he has certainly saved Atletico a few points with his spectacular goalie skills.

7. Luka Jovic

Luka Jovic

21 Million Euro – 18.5 Million Pound

Incredible but true, Luka Jovic is in this list. That alone is nothing short of remarkable but to see that he earns more than Sergio Ramos is just astounding. 

He has proven to not have what it takes and seeing that he makes 21 Million Euros a year is perhaps a miracle. 


6. Frenkie de Jong

Frenkie de Jong

22 Million Euro – 19.5 Million Euro

Frenkie was one of the most coveted players when he and Ajax were conquering Europe in flamboyant style. 

Barça paid over 75 Million Euro to acquire him and he certainly hasn’t dissapointed. 

5. Luis Suarez

Luis Suarez

23.4 Million Euro – 21.1 Million Pound

El Pistolero has been a wild success at Barcelona. He has been one of Spains’s top goalscorers ever since he joined La Liga in 2014 and in 2016 he even managed to win the Pichichi-award (Most goals in Spain), in a league that featured Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar. 

This guy deserves his money. 

4. Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale

28 Million Euro  – 24 Million Pound

Gareth Bale. The man who still does not speak Spanish. The man who scored winning goals in several Champions League finals and the man who is not loved at all in the Bernabéu. 

He does love his salary though, we are quite sure of that. 

3. Eden Hazard

Eden Hazard

29 Million Euro – 24.7 Million Pound

The Belgian truly can be one of the games best players. When is on his game, he is as good as Neymar or Messi.

He is also often plagued by injuries and seems to lack the sheer willpower to truly make it in Madrid. 

We at WTFoot doubt this guy can really make at the top level. His salary suggest otherwise. 

2. Antoine Griezmann

Antoine Griezmann

30 Million Euro – 28.5 Million Pound 

Antoine joined Barcelona in the summer of 2019 after having been the star at Atlético Madrid for a few years. 

In the Nou Camp he is yet to find his role as it proves difficult to play alongside Lionel Messi. 

1. Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi

98 Million Euro – 87 Million Pound

Who else is number 1 except the Greatest of All Time. 

Leo is miles ahead of the competition and his salary is a correct representation of that undeniable fact. 

He is and will forever be the GOAT.

Could Lionel Messi be on the move as his time at Barça is coming to an end?

Ronald Koeman’s obsession with Barça leads to yet another betrayal
