Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester City are the main contenders for the title – and the contestants will have to keep scoring if they want to win.
The focus is on bringing back Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo, who was named Premier League Player of the Month for September.
His rivals will have to have a commendable campaign if they prevent him from taking the golden boot in May, making this season even more exciting.
The 2021/22 Premier League season is full of big-money stars who want to forgo their big contracts – but who is ranked No.1?
Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all proud of the big money and are willing to change it. However, surprisingly Liverpool is not proud of the ten highest-paid players in the Premier League.
Money does not always guarantee success – just ask Manchester United fans since Sir Alex’s retirement – but it can go a long way in it. Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to the league has brought him closer to the top of the list.
Here Mirror Football lists the top 10 strikers in England’s biggest tournament – based on the opening of the two-month Premier League.
1. Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) – £510,000-a-week
Not surprisingly, Cristiano Ronaldo tops the list, considering the Portuguese icon has become one of the highest-paid footballers in the world for his career.
However, there is no doubt that Ronaldo is worth every penny, and it will be exciting to see if he can lead Manchester United to a trophy victory in his long-awaited return.
2. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal) – £350,000-a-week
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is Arsenal’s highest-paid player, but it should be noted that he has not yet reached his salary, especially in the 2020/21 season.
The Gabonese captain did poorly last season, scoring 15 goals in all competitions, and will have to improve if the Gunners fight for trophies.
3. Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea) – £325,000-a-week
Chelsea has added to their favorite tag by re-signing Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan, with the club paying a staggering £ 97.5million for his services. The Belgian has made himself one of the best strikers in the world over the past few years and would love to prove himself in the team – especially as he earns a whopping £ 325,000 – a week.
4. Timo Werner (Chelsea) – £272,000-a-week
The player who has been most criticized for the way he played in his first season is Timo Werner, the hard-hitting striker who scored just 12 goals last season.
The German is paid a high salary and will need to improve on his finish to gain fans’ trust in the 2021/22 campaign.
5. Edinson Cavani (Manchester United) – £250,000-a-week
United have signed Edinson Cavani with the highest salaries to get the knowledge he needs before goals by 2020, with the Uruguayan player enjoying a decent first season.
Although the player has extended his contract for another year, Ronaldo’s arrival will mean he will struggle during his playing career this season.
Cristiano Ronaldo was a star when he left Manchester United for Real Madrid 12 years ago – and returns to Old Trafford established as one of the best players in history.
United’s plot to sign the Portuguese striker from Juventus is one of the most dramatic steps in the transfer window and has delighted fans who feared he would visit rivals Manchester City.
Ronaldo soon enters the Premier League’s top flight, but does he become the new No. 1 before big names like Kevin de Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, and Jack Grealish?
