Tottenham Hotspur took the decision to put 550 of their non-playing staff on the government furlough scheme last week, the cause of much controversy (Sky Sports).

This meant that these employees would be paid 80% of their normal wages via government funds, including Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

Premier League owners and players have come under scrutiny this past week, with some arguing that the well-paid figures should be taking wage cuts themselves.

In a meeting between clubs and Premier League shareholders this week, the decision was reached to open a dialogue with the players over a potential 30% wage cut. Money would then go towards the NHS, EFL, and National League (BBC).

So, just how wealthy are the club owners at the very top of the Premier League?

Man City – Sheikh Mansour -£30 billion
