Los Blancos' record signing Gareth Bale is the richest young footballer (aged 30 or younger) from Britain, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.
The English publication estimated Bale's net worth to be £74 million (R1.2 billion), which sees him sitting in third spot in the overall ranking of the richest young sportsmen in Britain.
Only golfer Rory McIlroy (£110 million, R1.8 billion) and tennis star Sir Andy Murray (£83 million, R1.4 billion) are worth more than Bale. He is followed by Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero, who is richest young player based in England.
Aguero's worth is estimated to be £48 million (R803 million), which is £16 million (R27 million) more than third-highest ranked footballer, Eden Hazard.
Paul Pogba (£25 million, R418 million), Juan Mata (£24 million, R401 million), Alexis Sanchez (£21 million, R351 million) and David de Gea (£18 million, R300 million) are the four young United stars on the list, and you can see the complete top 12 in our gallery.
Note: The net worth is calculated based on the players' annual salaries, plus income from bonus payments, image rights and sponsorship deals after tax deductions.
