10 Highest-Paid Players At Man Utd After Ronaldo Return

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to return to Manchester United 12 years after he left to join Real Madrid, but how will his salary in England compare to what the likes of Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes earn at the club?

Click through the gallery above to see United's 10 highest-paid players, and how much they earn weekly, according to spotrac.com!

Last Friday, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri dropped a bombshell when he said that Ronaldo had told him that it was his plan to leave the Bianconeri after three years.

Those comments from Allegri came around when it seemed certain the Portugal captain would be joining Manchester City, but it soon became clear that it was the Citizens' city rivals that he was set to sign for.

Just hours following initial reports that the Red Devils' had attempted to hijack City's deal for the player, United announced they had reached an agreement with the Old Lady for the transfer of the five-time Ballon d'Or and UEFA Champions League winner.

On Monday morning, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reported that Ronaldo had passed a medical in Portugal ahead of his return to United, adding that what he will earn in Manchester could change due to how many add-ons will be included in the contract.

However, according to spotrac.com, the 36-year-old is set to become the club's highest-paid player by quite some distance, with goalkeeper David de Gea reportedly dropping to second place with his weekly earnings of £375 000 (R7.5 million).

French midfielder Pogba has seemingly dropped to fifth place in the standing, while Fernandes has dropped to 10th, although reports suggest that a new contract might soon be on the cards for the 26-year-old Portugal star.

Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, who are United's other two marquee signings in this window, also feature in the top 10.
