4) BARCELONA – £ 195million

This is the Messi effect. Before this summer, Barcelona were actually at the top of this list with £ 238million.

But as the Catalans have failed to secure a new deal for their most valuable asset, their total payroll has dropped dramatically as they seek to shed the astonishing levels of debt they find themselves in.

Nonetheless, Antoine Griezmann still makes an annual salary of £ 30.8million, with Philippe Coutinho now the third highest salary with £ 21.2million. New hires Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay are reportedly £ 5million and £ 4.3million a year respectively.

1) PSG – £ 256million

It’s been all summer for the Parisians.

In addition to Messi’s £ 25million a year deal, the Ligue 1 club shelled out free agents Georginio Wijnaldum, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Ramos for a combined annual salary expense of £ 29.2million.

This means the Ligue 1 club – backed by Qatari investments – now has by far the highest payroll of any sports team on the planet, at around £ 256million. A huge contract renewal for Kylian Mbappe will see that figure rise this summer as well.
