Report: Gareth Bale has earned £2.5m from games where he's been an unused sub.

We at BettingOdds.com have conducted a study into which players this season in the Premier League have earned the most money whilst being an unused substitute.

It’s been found that the most expensive goalkeeper in world football, Kepa Arrizabalaga, has earned a staggering £4.05m this season whilst sitting on the bench as deputy to Édouard Mendy. Gareth Bale (£2.5m) and Manchester United trio David De Gea (£2.63m), Juan Mata (£2.56m) and Dean Henderson (£2.4m) make up the rest of the top five. 

To determine which players were paid the most as an unused sub, we’ve multiplied each player's weekly wages by the number of games they’ve been left on the substitutes bench in the Premier League. 

Below you can find the list of the top 20 biggest earners as an unused substitute this season as well as the highest earning subs at every Premier League club.
