Table shows every Premier League club’s highest paid-per-minute player


 The wages that footballers earn has increased dramatically in recent times.  Due to the amount of money that is in the sport, football clubs are ensuring they get the players they want by offering them astronomical pay packets  Take Alexis Sanchez, for example.  Throughout January 2018, it looked as if the Chilean international would move to Manchester City  That prompted Manchester United to act, offering him a ridiculous £350,000-per-week to ensure that he joined them instead  But, these moves don’t always come off. Again, Sanchez is the perfect example.  Despite being the highest paid player at Man United, he has struggled during his time at the club  He’s scored just five times in 38 games and no longer finds himself as a regular  Predictably, he is costing his club a bomb, having earned £10,813 per-minute played in the Premier League this season  That is the most out of every player at the club.  But who earns the most money per-minute from every other Premier League club?  TheSportsman have looked at which player for each club has earned the most money per-minute this season  To be eligible, players must have played at least one minute of Premier League football this campaign  That means players such as Danny Drinkwater, who hasn’t played a single minute for Chelsea in England’s top tier this season, have been left out  So without further ado, let’s take a look at the players who are costing their players a lot while giving very little  *This graph is correct as of February 22  The name that immediately stands out is Papa Souare  The Senegalese international has played just one minute this season; against Fulham on the first day of the campaign  He has only been injured for 10 games this season, meaning he’s just badly out of favour  His £30k-per-week salary means he won’t be that concerned about being a fringe player  Jermaine Defoe is no longer at Bournemouth, having moved to Rangers in January, but he earned a handsome £98,759 per-minute played  Another player to leave their club on loan in January was Georges-Kévin Nkoudou, but he still cost Spurs £218,750 per-minute  Daniel Sturridge is Liverpool’s most costly player, having earned £12,381 per-minute played  On the other end of the scale, Brighton & Hove Albion and Wolverhampton Wanderers both deserve praise  Leander Dendoncker is Wolves’ top earner having earned £1,949 per-minute, while Florian Andone has earned £1,948 per-minute at Brighton
