De Gea is the highest-paid goalkeeper in the world as he narrowly edges out the likes of Manuel Neuer and Jan Oblak with his weekly wage of £375,000 per week.
The Spanish goalkeeper has been at Old Trafford for 12 seasons now and although his form these days can be a bit patchy, he is still one of the first names on the team sheet.
He has proved his worth this year under Erik ten Hag and could yet be rewarded with a new contract as his current deal in Manchester is set to expire at the end of the season.
As of December 2022, Cristiano Ronaldo had the highest salary out of any soccer player worldwide, earning an estimated 200 million U.S. dollars a year with Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr. Meanwhile, Lionel Messi earned around 65 million U.S. dollars a year, as well as 55 million U.S. dollars in off-field income.
