Man Utd's Highest-Paid Stars After Sancho Signing

Jadon Sancho has joined Manchester United, but how much will he earn in England compared to the likes of Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes?

Click through the gallery above to see the best-paid players, and how much they earn a week, at United following Sancho's arrival, according to The Sun.

It was announced earlier this month that the 21-year-old England international will join the Red Devils ahead of the 2021/22 season, following four seasons in Germany with Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

Early reports suggest that Sancho will earn astronomical wages of about £350 000 (R6.9 million) a week, which, if this is to be believed, would see the skilful attacker become United's second-highest-paid player.

The former Manchester City youth starlet has reportedly signed a five-year contract with the 20-time English champions, with his signature costing the Red Devils a hefty £73 million (R1.4 billion).

A clearer picture of United's wage bill now appears to have been painted, and it shows Sancho jumping ahead of superstars Pogba and Rashford in the club's earnings ranking.

His weekly wage would also be significantly higher than that of star man Fernandes, who is reportedly in line for a new contract given his contribution to the team since his arrival from Sporting Lisbon in January last year.

Transfer Update: Pogba

Goalkeeper David de Gea is still the team's highest-paid footballer, though – find out how much more he earns than Sancho in the gallery above!

Below is how Man Utd could line up with Sancho and a few more players they are linked with:
