2. Paul Pogba – £290,000 – Highest paid Manchester United playersTop five highest paid Manchester United players 2019 Paul Pogba
The midfield general is the second highest paid player at Manchester United. Paul Pogba came through various ranks at United but failed to nail a spot in the first team.

He left the club for Juventus and became an instant hit at the Italian club.

His brilliance in the midfield compelled the Red Devils to splash a whopping £89m to acquire his service.

The French midfielder won the Europa League and EFL Cup in his first season but has failed to produce on a consistent basis since then. He is about to run his contract down and might leave soon.
