Before receiving unpredictable fluctuations in the past few weeks, Chelsea was one of the clubs that was quite generous in paying salaries.
Tuchel on Lukaku’s form
Romelu Lukaku is currently the club’s highest salary earner with £325,000/week.
Kai Havertz suffers a bit more than Lukaku, but is already at £310,000/week.
Not surprisingly, N’Golo Kante is third on the list of the highest earners at Chelsea with £290,000 a week.
Timo Werner is pocketing £ 270,000 / week despite contributing almost zero to Chelsea. In the current difficult situation, it is likely that they will push him away this summer.
Number 5 on the list is left-back Ben Chiwell. He is receiving 190,000 pounds a week. At the end of last year, Chiwell suffered an ACL injury and had to miss the rest of the season.
Goalkeeper Kepa is receiving 150,000 pounds/week as a reserve goalkeeper. Recently, he was substituted to catch a penalty in the Final against Liverpool. Unfortunately, it was this player who missed the decisive penalty that made Chelsea miss the opportunity to win the Carabao Cup title.
Chelsea are paying Christian Pulisic £145k/week. This player went through difficult times because of Covid infections and injuries at the beginning of the season but has returned in recent times.
Callum Hudson-Odoi is a young player but is receiving a pretty high salary of 120,000 pounds a week. Tuchel is considering giving him more minutes to play next season if the momentum continues.
It is surprising that the pillar in the middle of Chelsea, Jorginho, is only receiving 110,000 pounds/week. Recently, the Italian midfielder also finished 3rd in the race for the Golden Ball.
The last person in the top 10 is midfielder Matteo Kovacic with a salary of 105,000 pounds/week.
