Report: R1.2bn Man Utd Target Requests Whopping Salary

Manchester United have been linked with a R1.2 billion striker, but would need to make him one of their highest-paid players in order to secure his signature, according to a report.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see who United's best earners, and what they earn weekly, are.

Jose Mourinho has expressed his frustrations about his club's business in the transfer window thus, but the acquisition of Robert Lewandowski could turn his mood around.

According to the Daily Star, United are considering making a move the 29-year-old, and Bayern Munich would apparently listen to offers in the region of £70 million (R1.2 billion).

Lewandowski recently switched agents, from Cezary Kucharski to Pini Zahavi, who is believed to be very close to Mourinho, and is said to be desperate to leave the German giants.

However, a stumbling block could be his high wages, with the Poland striker reportedly earning £300 000 (R5.2 million) a week in Germany.

The report claims that Lewandowski's camp has made it clear they will not entertain a move away from Bayern unless he gets a significant pay rise.

Currently, Alexis Sanchez is the only Manchester United player who earns more than Lewandowski does, with the Chilean receiving around £500 000 (R8.6 million) a week, making him the Premier League's highest-paid player.
