5 highest paid footballers at Manchester United
#3 David De Gea - £200,000/week
David is one of the few players who signed when Sir Alex Ferguson was still the manager at Manchester United. The Spaniard's impressive show with Athletico Madrid made him an ideal replacement for the retiring Edwin Van Der Sar at United.
De Gea struggled in his initial days making sloppy errors in his judgment. However, as time elapsed, he has established himself as one of the best players in the club. He could easily be among the top three goalkeepers in the world at the moment.
David has won almost everything, except the Champions League with the Red Devils. He is also the only recipient of Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award on three successive occasions.
However, the recent decline in United's performance and the lack of significant accolades has prompted the Spaniard to consider his future at Manchester United. It's beloved that he wants more salary hike to sign a new contract at the club.
