The best-paid Premier League managers revealed with Bielsa to move above Man Utd boss Solskjaer with new £8m Leeds deal

, The best-paid Premier League managers revealed with Bielsa to move above Man Utd boss Solskjaer with new £8m Leeds deal

MARCELO BIELSA is on the verge of signing a new £8million-a-year contract – which will make him better paid than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Leeds boss, 64, is set to be handed a bumper new contract after ending 16 years of hurt by guiding the Elland Road side back to the Premier League.

Bielsa is set to become the PL’s sixth-best-paid manager

Leeds gained promotion by winning the Championship title ahead of West Brom and Fulham, who came up through the play-offs.

With his side preparing for their Premier League opener against champions Liverpool, Bielsa is set to be rewarded for his incredible efforts.

And his new £8m-a-year pay-cheque – up from £6m per annum – will see him overtake a host of top bosses, including Manchester United chief Solskjaer.

In fact, Bielsa will become the SIXTH highest-paid boss in the Premier League.

His £8m would be just above Solskjaer’s £7.5m at mega-rich United.

However, the Leeds manager still trails the big-boys by some distance.

Manchester City chief Pep Guardiola leads the way on £20m per year.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp signed a new contract in December worth £15m per yer, drawing the German level with Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho.

Everton’s Carlo Ancelotti (£11.5m) and Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers (£10m) are the only other bosses earning more than Bielsa’s proposed £8m.
