David de Gea emerges as the highest earner at Manchester United
The 29-year-old earns a whopping £375,000-a-week. He is followed by French duo Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial. English ace Marcus Rashford is also among the top earners.
New boy Edinson Cavani is 33 and a short-term option. However, he is amongst the best-paid players at the club earning close to £200,000 per week.
United have had to compete against potential offers from China and the Middle East. This has forced them to pay a king’s ransom to convince the 33-year-old to make the move to Old Trafford.
Coming to impactful players, Bruno Fernandes is the club’s seventh highest-paid player. the Portuguese star has been instrumental since joining United in January. He earns £180,000 per week.
Mata is, at this point in time, a fringe player. With the signing of Telles, Shaw may soon join the Spaniard on the bench. Having to pay such a high wage to two players who are unessential sparks of poor management.
Interestingly, Telles himself is set to earn £75,000-per-week, half of what Shaw earns.
