It’s one of the most popular footballing questions of the year, and the answer is simple: the wage bill.
There are some obvious caveats, however, as outlined in a new report from Transferwise.
There’s a big difference between a club paying a fixed sum of money to players and the players paying a salary and then receiving a wage increase.
That’s the issue.
There is a very clear correlation between wage bill and league position in the Premier League, according to Transferwise’s data.
It is the only club that appears to have a clear preference in this area.
So, how do we figure out what club pays the most in wages?
That is, is a team paying a lot or less?
The first thing to do is to figure out where the money is going.
For this exercise, we use the salary cap for all the top-flight clubs.
This includes players, coaching staff, technical staff, and merchandising staff.
As you can see, Manchester City are at the top of the list, but they are paying a large amount.
The salary cap is a whopping £180 million.
Thats £2.2 million per player.
This leaves Liverpool, Arsenal, and Manchester United in the middle.
At the other end of the scale, Real Madrid are the most likely team to pay a very low amount, at around £150 million.
This gives us a number of key things to work from.
Firstly, the wage cap is only £180m, which means there are around 12 players that would be earning over £100 million a year.
That means that at the current rate of £1.6m per player per year, a team of 10 would be making £2 million a season.
If we look at the wage structure for other top-tier clubs, it becomes even more interesting.
Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester Spurs, Southampton, Manchester Utd, and Everton are all paying around £400 million per year in wages, while Liverpool, Tottenham, and Arsenal are paying less.
Liverpool’s wage structure is a little more interesting, as it seems to be a little less reliant on the wage pool than the other top tier clubs.
Liverpool are also the most expensive team in the league, but the wage of £80 million is almost £20 million less than Arsenal, Chelsea or Manchester United.
That makes sense.
It’s not as clear for Manchester City, as they have a £100m wage pool but only £40 million in wages.
It makes sense, therefore, that they would pay less than other top clubs.
The next thing to check is whether or not a club is paying players more than they are making.
This is the key part of the equation as the salary of a player is not an indication of his worth, but a reflection of his position in terms of how much money they are earning.
Manchester United are the highest paid club in the country, with a total of £220 million in the wage pot.
Their wage bill is only slightly below Arsenal, Liverpool, and Tottenham, with Manchester City and Manchester UtD being slightly more expensive, but still lower than Manchester City.
Arsenal are next with a wage bill of £210 million, but their wage pool is £65 million lower than Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City as they are paid less than those three clubs.
That puts them behind the three.
Chelsea are the next most expensive club in England, with their wage bill at £200 million, and they are only a few points off the Premier league leaders.
Liverpool and Manchester Spurs are next, at £215 million.
Everton are next at £250 million.
That leaves a gap of £30 million.
Transferwise have provided us with this breakdown for each club.
We can see that Arsenal have a big wage gap between them and the top teams.
Everton, on the other hand, are the cheapest in the top six, at just £45 million.
Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham are next on the list with a combined wage bill between £130 million and £170 million.
It is a similar story for Manchester United’s wage pool, but at £120 million, they are a few places ahead of the rest of the top four.
Southampton, Tottenham and Everton come next, all paying less than £150 for a combined £90 million wage.
In terms of where each club is spending their money, we can also look at which clubs are spending their profits.
The amount of money a club spends in their budget is an indicator of their revenue.
This shows how much they earn and how much profit they make.
As we have seen, Manchester Manchester City have a huge wage pool with a huge revenue share.
However, it also shows that Manchester United are spending less than most of the clubs.
Liverpool, City, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Everton all spend less than Liverpool and Arsenal.
Chelsea and United have the biggest spenders in the market, with Chelsea spending almost £200m, but United have almost £300m.It
