Joao Moutinho and Rui Patricio are Wolverhampton Wanderers’ highest earners by some distance.

The Portuguese internationals take home a salary of £5.2m (£100k-per-week) each, which is more than Raul Jimenez (£2.1m-a-year) and Adama Traore (£2.2m-a-year) combined.

It’s twice the salary of Ruben Neves too, but how does it compare with the rest of the Wolves squad?

  • Joao Moutinho (£5.2m-a-year/£100k-per-week)
  • Rui Patricio (£5.2m-a-year/£100k-per-week)
  • Patrick Cutrone (£3.2m-a-year/£62k-a-week)
  • Ruben Neves (£2.6m-a-year/£50k-per-week)
  • Adama Traore (£2.2m-a-year/£43k-per-week)
  • Raul Jimenez (£2.1m-a-year/£41k-per-week)
  • Leander Dendoncker (£1.9m-a-year/£37k-per-week)
  • Jonny Otto (£1.9m-a-year/£37k-per-week)
  • Ruben Vinagre (£1.5m-a-year/£30k-per-week)
  • Romain Saiss (£1.1m-a-year/£22k-per-week)
  • Ryan Bennett (£1m-a-year/£20k-per-week)
  • Conor Coady (£0.8m-a-year/£15k-per-week)
  • Matt Doherty (£0.5m-a-year/£10k-per-week)
  • Morgan Gibbs-White (£80k-a-year/£1.5k-per-week)

Based on the findings, the average first-team wage at Wolves is £2.1m-a-year/£41k-per-week. Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Leicester City, Crystal Palace and Everton all have at least one player earning more than Moutinho & Patricio.

And while Wolves are into the last-32 of the Europa League along with Arsenal and Manchester United, it’s worth noting that Nuno’s men only have two players on more than £100k-per-week compared to Arsenal’s 10 and United’s 12. Wolves are achieving great levels of success on a more modest budget.

How far will Wolves go in the Europa League?
