Manchester United made the signing of English winger Jadon Sancho official earlier this week. The Red Devils agreed to a deal in principle (€90 M + add ons) with Sancho’s former club Borussia Dortmund. The 21 year old is set to become one of the highest earning players in the Premier League, with reports claiming that Jadon Sancho will pocket a hefty wage of £350,000 per week.
This will make him second to only David De Gea, who earns a staggering £375,000 per week, in the list of the highest earners at Manchester United. When we consider the entire league, however, Jadon Sancho ranks at no. 3, behind Gareth Bale and David De Gea. Gareth Bale, who currently earns £600,000 at Tottenham (a part of which is paid by Real Madrid), is currently Premier League’s highest earner. However, it will only remain so for a few more months as the winger is set to return to Madrid having finished his 1-year loan spell at Spurs.
Jadon Sancho and David De Gea are not the only Manchester United players with a fat paycheck. Paul Pogba is on £290,000-a-week, ahead of Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani, who are both on a £250,000-a-week deal.
Here is a list of the Top 10 Highest earners at Manchester United
