It’s no surprise that PSG dominate the list. The first fourteen places on the list are held by footballers who all play for the French superpower. Neymar is the absolute top earner. He receives a monthly gross salary of no less than four million (!) euros. Lionel Messi also receives a monthly amount of millions (more than 3.3 million). Kylian Mbappe completes the top three with 2.2 million.
Wijnaldum is the ninth highest paid player in France. He is credited with more than nine tons a month, the same as goalie Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Mauricio Pochettino also has nothing to complain about at PSG. He is by far the highest paid trainer in France, earning an estimated 1.1 million euros per month. That is three times as much as the number two on the French salary list: Jorge Sampaoli (Olympique Marseille) and Christophe Galtier (OGC Nice), who both earn 330,000 euros per month. Peter Bosz is the number four with a monthly income of 250 thousand euros at Lyon.
