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.

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.
