Newcastle United’s highest-paid players range from an £86,000-per-week flop to a £22,000-per-week fan favorite.

Despite becoming the richest club in the Premier League after a £300 million Saudi Arabian-led takeover last week, the Magpies have the league’s 12th highest payroll.

Newcastle United’s new owners’ infusion of cash is likely to usher in a bold new era in the north east, with fans dreaming of title challenges.

Newcastle’s new owners have already stated that they intend to compete for a place in the Champions League in the near future.

This is a far cry from the club’s recent history, which has been characterized by mid-table mediocrity and relegation fights under Mike Ashley’s ownership.

It’s also possible that the club’s current crop of players will be paid differently, since the Magpies have been connected with a slew of big names ahead of the January transfer window.

Aaron Ramsey, a Juventus and Wales midfielder, is one of the stars topping transfer rumors pages over a potential move to Newcastle in the new year.

According to Spotrac, the former Arsenal man’s reported £400,000-per-week salaries are more than the Magpies’ current top eight earners combined.

Signing a club record Since arriving from Hoffenheim for £40 million in 2019, Joelinton has been the club’s highest paid player, earning £86,500 per week.

With weekly earnings of £70,000 and £57,500, respectively, English midfielder Jonjo Shelvey and Swedish full-back Emil Krafth round out the top three.

Federico Fernandez presently earns £47,000 per week, which is £1,000 more than Callum Wilson, the equal best scorer this season with two goals.

Matt Ritchie, a Scotland international, makes £45,000 per week, while Miguel Almiron and Ryan Fraser both earn £42,000 per week.

A number of players are said to be making £40,000 per week, including Jeff Hendrick, Dwight Gayle, club captain Jamaal Lascelles, and Fabian Schar.

In July, Schar agreed to a one-year contract deal that will keep him at the club until the end of the current season.

Jamal Lewis and Allan Saint-Maximin, who are equal for second on the team with two goals this season, each get £38,500 per week, with number one Martin Dubravka earning £38,000 per week.

Ciaran Clark, Paul Dummett, and Javier Manquillo are all paid £35,000 per week on defense, while Karl Darlow and Jacob Murphy are paid £25,000 per week.

Murphy signed a new six-year contract at St James’ Park in the summer, which will keep him at the club until 2027.
