Kalvin Phillips will reportedly earn £150,000-per-week at Manchester City, with only seven players earning more than him.
On Monday, the England international signed a six-year contract with his boyhood club Leeds United.
City will pay an initial fee of £45 million, which may increase with add-ons. Darko Gyabi has also moved in the opposite direction in a £5 million deal.
Phillips is expected to play an important role without club captain Fernandinho, who left at the end of last season. He will compete with Rodri for a starting spot in City’s midfield.
The 26-year-old could also be used further forward, giving the reigning Premier League champions more midfield depth.
Kevin De Bruyne is City’s highest-paid player, earning £400,000 per week.
Summer signing Erling Haaland earns just under £375,000 per week after joining from Borussia Dortmund.
The wages of City’s entire squad are listed below, according to The Sun and Salary Sport, among other sources. It’s worth noting that Phil Foden’s salary is unlikely to be that low, but there’s no other information available online at the time of writing.

Phillips helped Leeds win the Championship in 2020 and it marked a return to the Premier League for the first time in 16 years.
They comfortably finished ninth in 20/21, but Phillips battled injuries in the last campaign as Leeds battled relegation. They survived after a final day victory over Brentford.
Phillips told CityTV: “I think over the past few years at Leeds, I’ve done really well.
“Obviously, I got into the England squad as well and done really well there and I’m very appreciative of what I’ve done at Leeds and everyone I’ve been around.
“I just want to test myself on the next step with players who have an unbelievable work ethic and an unbelievable manager as well.
“The quality of the players City have got, the way that they play and the way that they pass the ball around is an unbelievable style of play.
“It’s something I’ve always been attracted to.”
