Failing to concretize sportingly speaking, the PSG literally knocks out the competition on a European scale in terms of payroll.
This is a data that says a lot about the delusional payroll of PSG. At a time when the capital club is still working to offer a lease extension to a Lionel Messi earning more than 40 million euros per season – and claiming an alignment on the 55 million received each year by Kylian Mbappé – the comparison of European super-powers challenges.
With no less than 728 million euros dedicated this season to the salaries of its professional workforce – a jump of 45% compared to the previous year – Paris prances at the top of the most generous clubs of the Old Continent. And by far ! Even the behemoths of La Liga and the Premier League cannot keep pace! Manchester City, which nevertheless also flies the Middle Eastern flag, and Chelsea, freshly doped by an American tycoon, understood.
The first dolphin of the PSG in the matter, thus, is an institution: Real Madrid and its 14 C1 raised. But with more than 200 million euros in sight. Barça completes the podium before a fine British line-up from Manchester United to Chelsea via Liverpool and City. All close to 300 million euros from the Parisian leader. Ninth power in salary terms, the very reasonable Bayern has an annual salary mass of 400 million less than that of PSG. And yet…
