Arsene Wenger will be the third-highest paid manager in the Premier League next season with the arrival of Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola on mega salaries.

The Arsenal boss currently earns £8.3m as he enters the final year of his current contract, but this is some way short of the £15m that is set to be paid to the new United and City managers.

Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp just bagged himself a new contract and, with it, a nice 25% pay rise as he moves from £6m to £7.5m. Everton have handed Ronald Koeman £6m reasons to leave Southampton (which is £2.5m less than Tottenham gave Mauricio Pochettino to do the same) while Tony Pulis makes a surprise appearance in the top 10.

Top 10 best paid Premier League managers for 16/17 season:
