Manchester City are in top spot on Premier League’s highest wage bill table, followed by Liverpool and Manchester United.
The Reds spent a colossal £325million on salaries during the 2019/20 season – a figure which is believed to be heavily bonus related in a year which saw Jurgen Klopp’s men claim their first top-flight title since 1990.
The figure represents a 4.8% increase on their 2018/19 wage bill of £310million and a remarkable 23.6% rise on the 2017/18 total of £263million.
Those numbers mean Liverpool now have the Premier League’s second-highest wage bill, putting them ahead of arch-rivals United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men aren’t lagging too far behind after paying out £284million to players during the 2019/20 campaign.
They’re just ahead of Chelsea, who shelled out £283million on salaries during the same period.
But it’s Manchester City who quite literally top the bill with their colossal wage payments totalling £351million last season – a Premier League record.
