The 11 Highest-Paid Man Utd Stars

Odion Ighalo is one of Manchester United's highest-paid players, but he still earns less than half of what Paul Pogba and the club's other top earners are getting – here are United's highest-paid stars!

Click through the gallery above to see United's top earners, and what they earn weekly, according to Total Sportek.

Earlier this week, United announced the extension of Ighalo's loan deal until 31 January, with the Daily Mirror claiming that the Premier League side will continue to pay £130 000 (R2.8 million) of his £300 000 (R6.5 million) weekly wages, while his parent club Shanghai Shenhua contributes the rest.

His salary ensures that he is among United's top earners, although eight of the club's stars pocket more than he does.
