Juventus are ranked eighth among the highest paying football clubs in the world game. The Bianconeri’s annual average wage comes to £3.97 million per year (€4.61 million), which works out to £76,000 per week (€88,000).
A The Mail on Sunday report released over the weekend showed that the Serie A was the third highest paid football league in the world, with an average salary of £1.1 million per year (€1.3 million), or £48,800 a week (€56,650). The La Liga is second, just over half of the cash-flush Premier League in first place.
Serie A has just three teams in the top twenty, with the Premier League having eleven, the La Liga with three and the Bundesliga with two.
The global sports salary survey (GSSS) looked into the salaries of nearly 10,000 sportsmen at 333 teams in seven sports across 17 of the world's richest leagues. Three football teams are in the top ten there, with the NBA taking six spots and baseball placing one.
