The Highest-Paid Premier League Goalkeepers

A Premier League game.
Premier League

The Premier League generates $8.5 billion selling its media rights, and leading clubs are selling tickets at record levels.

Goalkeepers don’t usually get a lot of attention from fans, but their role as goal-stoppers is crucial.

The highest-paid Premier League goalkeepers command salaries that are on par with other players involved in more of the action.

At the top of the list is André Onana of Manchester United. He makes $10.4 million a year which includes $4.16 million in performance-based bonuses.

In his first full season with United, Onana was fifth in the Premier League with nine clean sheets. He’s the only keeper in the league making over $10 million.

Earning $7.8 million to come in second is Alisson Becker from Liverpool. The Brazilian goalkeeper signed a 4-year, $31.2 million contract in 2021. At the time, that deal made him the highest-paid goalkeeper in the Premier League.

He’s won four individual awards in his career, including the 2019 Best FIFA Men’s Goalkeeper. 

Fulham’s Bernd Leno is third on the list. He makes $6.76 million playing for the London club. The 31-year-old has earned over $39 million in his career playing in Germany first then England. 

Jordan Pickford is fourth with his $6.5 million salary. The Everton goalkeeper signed a new deal in 2023 worth $26 million over four years.

Pickford finished the 2023-2024 Premier League season with 13 clean sheets, second among all Premier League goalkeepers. 

At $6.24 million, Alphonse Areola, Emiliano Martinez, and Aaron Ramsdale tie for the fifth spot on the list. Areola signed with West Ham in 2022 after playing for Fulham. He received a $4 million pay raise from what he was earning with the other London-based club.

Martinez has been with Aston Villa since 2022. He won the World Cup with Argentina that year and was named the Best FIFA Men’s Goalkeeper as well.

Ramsdale plays for Arsenal, having signed a 3-year deal worth $18.72 million. He started his career in League Two with Chesterfield where he was only making $130K a year. He is expected to leave the club this summer, after the acquisition of David Raya, who took over as Arsenal’s leading keeper.

Onana’s $4.16 million in performance-based bonuses is the most of any goalkeeper on the list.
