Werner to earn 15.5 million euros at Chelsea: he will be the highest paid
Werner is a new Chelsea player, that is a fact and it is official. He will remain at RB Leipzig until July when he will undergo a medical to join Frank Lampard's men ahead of the 21-22 season. His transfer cost 53 million euros, but there are more figures: 'AS' reveals them.
The most important thing is his wage. He will earn 15 million euros. He will be, in this way, the highest paid in the whole squad. Kanté and Kepa are 2nd and 3rd who earn 8.7 million per season. The player will also get 11 million just for signing.
Stuttgart will also get a portion of the money. They will receive 8.2 of the 39 million. This is due to the clause that was agreed when he changed teams: a sell-on fee and training compensation.
If you do a quick addition, it has cost Chelsea a total of 64 million euros. A soon as he completes next season and gets his wage, it will be a total future expenditure of 79 million. An enormous investment for one of the best strikers at the moment.
