Every Premier League Club’s Wage Bill In 2019/2020
In the modern game, we’ve become obsessed with transfer fees, wages and wage bills.
It has become more and more popular for fans to have concerns, or perhaps even boast, about the size of their club’s overall wage bill, whether it’s big or small.
And the old cliche ‘size matters’ is believed to be especially true in the beautiful game. The general consensus is that the more a club pays in wages, the better they should be doing on the pitch. That’s because if you want the best players, you’re going to have to be prepared to pay them the best salaries.
Of course, there will always be overachievers and underachievers, but does every club’s yearly Premier League wage bill reflect their success on the pitch?
Let’s find out…
20. Sheffield United – £13.31m
It’s no surprise to see one of the newly promoted sides with the lowest wage bill, with the Blades spending very little on their players’ annual salaries.
Given the start to the season they’ve had, you have to say they’ve been overachieving so far.
