With the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, and Suarez receiving mouthwatering pay, footballers are also underpaid. Here is the list of the top 5 underpaid footballers in Europe have been released.
England lead the list which show why footballers always want to join clubs away from England once genuine interest arise.
5 Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) – £60,000 per week.
The Liverpool defender earns just £60,000 according to multiple sources. Having won the Champions League and the Premier League with Liverpool, you will expect Arnold to earn a decent salary by now.
Arnold is one of the best defenders in the world despite him not having a good season this term.
4 Lautaro Martinez (Inter Milan) – £50,000 per week.
The Inter Milan star is enjoying an incredible season with the former United striker Romelu Lukaku. This partnership has ensured Inter Milan’s solid performance who top the Serie A standings.
Despite that, there exist a huge disparity in terms of the payment between Martinez and Lukaku. Lukaku pockets £170,000 per week while Martinez earns £50,000. That salary is too low for one of the best young strikers in Europe.

3 Bukayo Saka (Arsenal) – £10,000 per week.
Arsenal have found themselves struggling when the 19 years old teen is not on the pitch. Despite little experience, Bukayo Saka has been sensational and at times relied upon to turn things around for Arsenal.
Saka’s salary of £10,000 per week is too low considering what he does for the Arsenal team.
Academy graduates are usually paid less as it takes time for them to level up from their first professional contract.
2 Scott McTominay (Manchester United) – £10,000 per week.
Manchester United midfielder is emerging as one of the best box-to-box midfielders in Europe.
Scott has scored 7 goals from the central midfield position, with his goals proofing to be so much decisive for the Manchester United team.
With Manchester United known as a team that mostly overpays players, his £10,000 per week is too low regarding the caliber of the player on the pitch.
1 Phil Foden (Manchester City) – £12,000 per week.
Phil Foden is one of the most promising players in the World. His impact on the field for Manchester United this season has been great.
Foden’s goal contribution forManchester City this season stands at 19, with 12 goals and seven assists across all competitions.
His salary of £12,000 per week is far less than what is expected for a player of his stature. His salary doesn’t come anywhere his contribution on the pitch.
With City paying their hird-choice goalkeeper Zack Steffen around £50,000 per week, it looks very unfair to Foden. However, like Bukayo Saka, academy graduates are usually paid less as it takes time for them to level up from their first professional contract.
