Timo Werner earns staggering £270k a week while flop Saul Niguez takes home more than Mason Mount and Reece James


TIMO WERNER earns a staggering £270,000-a- week at Chelsea, while reports claim that flop Sau Niguez pockets more than homegrown heroes Reece James and Mason Mount. Chelsea were put for sale last week by Roman Abramovich last week amid potential government sanctions on Russian oligarchs.

Whoever replaces the 55-year-old at the helm is se to inherit a bizarre wage bill. The Blues spent an astonishing £333million on player salaries last season. And their current structure sees expensive fringe players pocketing more than their most important stars.

According to the Telegraph , Werner is earning £270,000-a-week... despite having last started a Premier League game 88 days ago.

 The forward, who has scored one Prem goal this season, still has three years remaining on his lucrative deal. Borussia Dortmund have shown an interest in the former RB Leipzig man, but will struggle to afford his wages.

Back-up goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who cost £71.6million in 2018, has three years remaining on an eyewatering £190,000-a-week deal. First choice Edouard Mendy, who was named the best goalkeeper in the world at last year's Fifa awards, pockets just £57,000-a-week.

 Saul Niguez produced his best Chelsea performanc to date in the recent cup tie against Luton, but his loan spell at Atletico Madrid remains an underwhelming one.

Bafflingly he is earning more than Mount and James, despite their sensational displays for their boyhood club. N'Golo Kante and Jorginho will both have one year remaining on their respective deals come the summer - giving Chelsea's new owners a pair of bi decisions to make.

Antonio Rudiger, meanwhile, will want top dollar if he is to stay at Stamford Bridge - with fellow centre half Andreas Christensen looking set to join Barcelona on a free.
