– Manchester United are the highest paying Premier League club
– Reports show the Red Devils paid a total of about £332m last year
– Sanchez, De Gea, Rashford and a few others are the highest paid players at the club
Manchester United are the highest paying Premier League club with a staggering KSh 45 billion (£332 million) paid as salaries in the last one year.
This comes despite recent measures taken by United to cut down their weekly and monthly expenses including allowing of senior players to leave the club.
According to Sports Ramble, United’s wage bill increased with about £36 million, 12% of what they recorded the previous year.
The publication further stated the Manchester dwellers have paid about 43% more than they paid three years ago.
And this is as a result of Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford, David De Gea and Alexis Sanchez all being paid massively at the club.
Meanwhile, current league leaders Liverpool are next on the table with a wage bill of £264m a year, while defending champions Manchester City are third with £260 million.
Despite spending that much money, United cannot measure up with the two clubs in terms of achievement in recent years.
The Old Trafford outfit have not tasted Premier League glory since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, but won Europa League title and the EFL Cup during Jose Mourinho’s first year in charge of the club.
Before then, former Barcelona tactician Louis van Gaal won the FA Cup trophy for them in 2016 after which he was shown the exit doors.
