Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly after agreeing to join the blues this summer enter the top 10 earners at Chelsea with estimated earnings of €300,000 and €162,000 weekly.
While Koulibaly, a defender from Napoli, is anticipated to join Chelsea for £33 million, Sterling signed for Chelsea for a contract worth up to £47.5 million.
The 31-year-old Koulibaly will be Chelsea’s first defensive addition following the exits of Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger.
Fabrizio Romano, an Italian transfer specialist, claimed that Koulibaly will sign a deal at Stamford Bridge worth £162,000 per week.
He will now rank as Chelsea’s sixth-highest-paid player as a result.
It was previously disclosed that Raheem Sterling and Tuchel had some incredibly nice meetings during which he was deeply impressed.
He will sign a contract that would pay him more than £300,000 a week, making him one of the top three earners in the Premier League, according to Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph.
He would now rank as the second-highest earner for the team.
Since Lukaku left, Kai Havertz, who makes £310,000 a week, is the Blues’ highest-paid player.
The final year of N’Golo Kante’s £290,000-a-week contract places him third behind Havertz and Sterling and has been linked with Arsenal.
Ben Chilwell is their best-paid defender, making £190k per week, while German forward Timo Werner earns £270k.
Koulibaly acknowledged a possible transfer to Stamford Bridge, as cited by Romain Collet-Gaudin: “I’ll confirm that later, but it’s on the correct track.”
