Juventus wages: How much does each player earn?
Ever since they were bought by the Agnelli family dynasty in the 1920s, Juventus have been the richest football club in Italy.
As a result, Juventus have consistently been able to pay the highest transfer fees and salaries in Serie A.
Despite the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, which caused Juve to rack up debts of over €400 million at the end of last season, the Old Lady is still able to pay significantly higher wages than any other team in Italy.
And they were still able to make two big signings in the January transfer window as they brought in Dusan Vlahovic for €80m from Fiorentina and Denis Zakaria for €7m from Borussia Monchengladbach.
So, who is Juventus’ top-earner? And who should perhaps have a better salary?
According to the highly-respected economic outlet Calcio Finanza, below is how much each Juventus player earns net per season
How much does every Juventus player earn?
|Matthijs De Ligt||22||€8m||2024|
|Mattia De Sciglio||29||€3m||2025|
Following the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo, who was on a staggering €30m net per season, Matthijs De Ligt is now the highest paid player at Juventus.
The Dutch defender is paid €8m net per season, which reflects his status as one of the best defenders in the world.
Paulo Dybala is the second-highest paid player in the Juventus squad on €7.3m per year. The Argentine’s contract expires at the end of June and he looks set to leave the club.
The next two highest earners for Juventus are January signing Dusan Vlahovic and Adrien Rabiot, both earn €7m net a season.
Surprisingly low earners are Federico Chiesa on €5m, and Manuel Locatelli on €3m. Both players impressed at Euro 2020 and could surely command bigger salaries outside of Italy.
The lowest paid player at Juventus is third-choice goalkeeper Carlo Pinsoglio on €300,000 per year.
It should be noted that Chiesa and Locatelli are on loans that will become permanent in 2022 and 2023, respectively, which will extend their contracts to 2025 and 2026.
Juventus also have options to extend the deals of Alvaro Morata and Moise Kean.
