Ghana’s Baba Rahman is Real Mallorca’s highest paid player


Ghana defender Baba Rahman has emerged as the top earning player at Spanish side Real Mallorca.

Baba joined the Vermilion on a season-long loan deal from English Premier League giants Chelsea FC in the summer.

The 25-year-old left-back’s time at the San Moix has been hampered by injuries, playing a total of 199 minutes in three matches for the side.

He returned from a three-month injury on his in Mallorca’s Spanish Cup victory against lower-tier side El Àlamo in January but he was just a shadow of himself, both physically and mentally.

It has however appeared that Baba is the highest-paid player at the club with wages of €286,500 per-week, which is almost trice as what key player Abdón Prats (€73,000) pockets weekly.

Reason for the defender’s high salary being that he is paid by his parent club, Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Baba’s compatriots Lumor Agbenyenu and Iddrisu Baba Mohammed take home €34,000 and €20,000 respectively.

Both players have played important role for Vicente Moreno’s men this season. Agbenyenu has enjoyed 20 games with Baba Iddrisu playing 25 matches in all competitions.
