The Premier League is definitely the most exciting league in the world and its clubs have very deep pockets to boot.
The 2020/21 campaign is already buzzing and already English teams are leading the way in terms of spending in the transfer market.
While almost a billion pounds have been spent on transfers, it is also worthy to note that managers are also taking huge sums.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is currently the highest-paid manager in the Premier League, with Spurs boss Jose Mourinho following suit.
But did you know that Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa and Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers earn more than Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer?
Carlo Ancelotti's contract with Everton:
• £11,500,000 per year
• £958,333 per month
• £221,153 per week
• £31,593 per day
• £1,316 per hour
• £21 per minute.
