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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
