GRAHAM POTTER will earn £10million-a-year at Chelsea after signing a lucrative five-year deal at Stamford Bridge.
And that makes the 47-year-old the joint FOURTH highest earner in the Premier League after he received a bumper pay rise after leaving Brighton.
The ex-Swansea gaffer was believed to have been pocketing £2m-per-year with the Seagulls where he was one of the top-flight's lowest earners.
But SunSport understands he will take home £50m from the long-term contract he penned in West London.
That is more than sacked predecessor Thomas Tuchel – who was paid around £7m-a-year by the Blues.
But what do Potter's colleagues earn? SunSport takes a look below.
