Dominik Szoboszlai wages explained with Mason Mount contract comparison

Despite being one of the most expensive signings in Liverpool’s history, Dominik Szoboszlai will not immediately become one of the highest-earning players at the club. 

His transfer from RB Leipzig, which amounted to approximately £60 million, puts him behind only Darwin Nunez (£85 million), Virgil van Dijk (£75 million), and Alisson (£65 million) in terms of transfer fees.

This indicates the club’s strong belief in the abilities of the 22-year-old midfielder, especially considering that the negotiations with RB Leipzig resulted in a single payment to meet his release clause. However, despite being a distinctive signing in this regard, the player will still adhere to Liverpool’s established wage policy.

With the exception of Thiago, who became one of the highest earners after his transfer from Bayern Munich in 2020, most signings at Liverpool agree to lower wages with the understanding that their performance and progress will be duly rewarded.’

 According to Chris Bascombe of The Telegraph, it is reported that Szoboszlai’s weekly earnings will be below £125,000, which falls within the mid-range of Liverpool’s salary structure. In comparison, Liverpool experienced disappointment in their pursuit of Mason Mount, who expressed his preference for Manchester United instead.

According to Bascombe’s explanation, Mason Mount has reportedly agreed to a contract worth £250,000 per week with Manchester United, while Szoboszlai’s negotiations resulted in him earning “less than half” of that amount. Although Szoboszlai’s wage is still considerable, Liverpool was not willing to sign players whose demands would disrupt their existing wage structure, despite spending £60 million on his transfer.

Currently, Mohamed Salah is comfortably the highest earner at Liverpool, earning £350,000 per week. It is believed that Virgil van Dijk and Thiago are the only other players earning £200,000 or more weekly. 

Other players in the squad can use these figures as an incentive to perform, although it’s likely that most, if not all, of their contracts already include performance-related bonuses.

Szoboszlai was also being pursued by Newcastle during the summer, but Liverpool’s emergence in the race made the decision clear for the Hungarian player.
