Bayern Munich are one of the biggest and most successful clubs in the world and as such they also have some of the highest paid players on the planet.

Indeed, the Bavarian giants wouldn’t be able to keep the world class players they possess, such as Manuel Neuer and Joshua Kimmich, if they couldn’t match the wages of the richest clubs in Europe.

As a club that prides itself on running an operation that minimises costs and maintains a profit whenever it can, Bayern’s wage bill is a well-oiled machine that keeps a squad of stars happy whilst ensuring the club doesn’t go beyond its means.

To no great surprise, Lewandowski is by far and away the highest paid player at the Munich side due to the simple fact that he’s currently one of - if not the very best - strikers in all of European football.

The Poland international has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona, but his salary of €23 million is there to try and keep his head from turning.

After Lewandowski, there is a tier of key players that form an integral part of Julian Nageslmann’s squad. They are Manuel Neuer, Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane and Joshua Kimmich, who are all making around €20 million.

Kingsley Coman recently signed a new contract until 2027, earning a reported €17m a year. The Frenchman had previously been linked with a move away from the club, but he now looks set to stay. Both Lucas Hernandez and Leon Goretzka are understood to earn just a slight amount more than the winger.

Just below this second tier are a group of talented and often young players that are on the cusp of developing into crucial members of the squad. This includes Serge Gnabry, Dayot Upamecano, Benjamin Pavard and Alphonso Davies.

Youngster Jamal Musiala is also reportedly earning €5m per year, more than elder statesmen Eric Choupo-Moting.

Below that group are the likes of Marc Roca, Tanguy Nianzou and Bouna Sarr who bring up the rear of Bayern's squad.
