Top five highest paid Chelsea players 2019
- N’Golo Kante: £290,000
The defensive midfielder is the highest paid player at Chelsea FC after signing a new contract this season.
2. Gonzalo Higuaín – £270,000
3. Eden Hazard: £200,000
Perhaps the one contract the Blues want to desperately sort out as soon as possible. They are in need of a magician like Eden who can turn matches on his head and even on his bad day, he pushes the average over-aged Chelsea attack.
He is perhaps one of the finest dribblers in the Premier League but what sets him apart is his ability to playmake while possessing threat enough to go on all the way himself. It is quite a doubt though whether he will stay with the Blues since Hazard is keen on making a jump to join his childhood idol Zidane at Real Madrid.
It is now perhaps an even bigger worry for Chelsea, given that they have been slammed by FIFA with a transfer ban which will leave Chelsea exposed.
4. Kepa Arrizabalaga: £192,000
3. Cesar Azpilicueta : £150,000
The Chelsea on-field captain has been a major rock at the back. And he has proved himself smart enough to adapt to three different positions. Had to adjust to play as a left back in Mourinho’s season to adapt and did a brilliant job playing out of position. In came Conte and pushed Dave to play as a third centre back and he superseded the regular centre backs in that role. Now with Sarri he has been asked to play as a full back who can keep and rotate the ball out on the right and Azpi, though a little rusty with the attacking side, has once again been solid in defence. He’s the future club captain and deservingly one of the highest earners at the club.
Eden Hazard is the highest paid player at Chelsea with a £200,000 a week salary.
