Manchester United: Weekly wages and salary of first-team stars revealed
Manchester United have been in the thick of things in the recently concluded transfer window. And that is, by no means, a departure from their routine. Unlike a few who ship in their dough from the oil-rich palm gardens of the middle east, Manchester United have conjured a staggering £615 million in revenue of their own.
But thanks to the array of the superstars of the current generation and the next being active members of the Red Army, the wage bill is eye-popping. With perhaps, the most high-profile signing of the January transfer window in Alexis Sanchez, the cheques are getting sizeably larger.
Here, we take a look at the wages of 24 Manchester United first team players. Without more quips, let's get to it:
#24 Scott McTominay (Midfielder) - £15,000/week
The lanky 21-year-old Lancaster born midfielder is a promising figure in the United ranks. After an abrupt growth spurt in the later years of his teenage made him impossible for most players to go shoulder-to-shoulder with, Jose Mourinho has been gently integrating him into the first-team.
With miles to go and a Carrick sized slot in midfield to be filled, the Old Trafford faithful will be looking at Scott to deliver the goods and then some.
#23 Marcus Rashford (Forward) - £20,000/week
Yep, I'm as surprised as you are to find one of the most promising youngsters in the game at the bottom of this list. Marcus Rashford rose through the ranks and scripted a fairytale start to his career with some outstanding performances in the biggest of games. And Old Trafford has taken to him like dogs to pups.
Constantly battling with Anthony Martial and, now, Alexis Sanchez for a starting spot, here is one player who is definitely in for one heck of an appraisal. He's already been involved in 15 goals for Manchester United this season. So why wouldn't he be?
