Arsenal boss Wenger talking cobblers rapping Chelsea over wage bill
The Guardian says Wenger is now believed to command comfortably the third-biggest wage bill in the Premier League.
According to analysis by the Arsenal Supporters Trust of the club's accounts released last November, the Gunners' wage commitments have risen to around £120m. By contrast Chelsea's were swollen by £12.6m in compensation payments to the two most recently departed managers, Avram Grant and Luiz Felipe Scolari.
Strip those out and Chelsea's total is, according to their most recently available accounts, a very comparable £137m.
