Baba Rahman will become one of Ghana’s highest earning footballers with the right-back earning nearly £76,000 per week as he completes his move to English giants Chelsea. The former Asante Kotoko defender will join the ranks of Asamoah Gyan, Andre Ayew and Kwadwo Asamoah as the highest earning Ghanaian players when he completes the deal to join Chelsea by Wednesday. The soft-spoken player’s yearly wage would amount to €5.45 million per year or €109,000 per week. The conversion rate means he will earn nearly £76,000 weekly excluding other bonuses and perks. If the figure is before his tax deductions, then the per year contract amounts will drop to €60,000 per week — or £42,000. Whether it is a net figure or not, it still is a lot of money for a 21-year-old player coming from a small Bundesliga team Augsburg. It will zoom him straight into the ranks of Gyan who earns $350,000 in China, Andre Ayew who takes home about £80,000 per week at Swansea while Kwadwo Asamoah takes home about €70,000 per week at Juventus.
