Arsenal and England star Bukayo Saka is regularly named as one of the best young footballers in the world. At just 20-years-old, he already has a bank balance that is the envy of many after an already brilliant career.
His career started after Saka’s skills were recognised by Freddie Ljungberg, Arsenal Academy's coach, and was given a contract for the Arsenal U23 team.
In 2018 he played his first game for the senior team Vorskla Poltava, and the rest is history. He now plays as a midfielder for the Gunners, and played for England against Wales in October under the guidance of Gareth Southgate.
Keen to keep hold of him, Saka signed an impressive deal to stay with Arsenal. He secured a 4 year, £6,240,000 contract with an average salary of £1,560,000.
It emerged in July that there was plenty of interest in the young star from Liverpool and Manchester City. Arsenal manager Arteta said in interviews that both he and the club were keen to keep hold of Saka.
He currently has two years left of his contract, and there is a rumoured offer on the table of a whopping £150,000 a week to keep him with the club, putting him on an enormous £7.8 million per year. At the moment the club’s top earners are Gabriel Jesus and Thomas Partey, who are said to earn around £200,000 a week each.
Saka won Arsenal’s Player Of The Year award last season and was also nominated for the Premier League Player Of The Season.
He has an impressive 2.6 million followers on Instagram, and regularly posts adverts and sponsored content for the likes of New Balance, which will only boost his bank balance further, and shared photos of him relaxing on holiday in Dubai and in fancy hotels. His bank balance is only set to increase as his career continues.
