Manchester United are one of the highest paying teams in the Premier League and in the world. Their wages are astronomical but not all of the players are paid the same. Some are paid better than others. Here we look at the highest paid and thus most valued players by Manchester United.

Also known as The Red Devils a Manchester United have spent most of their history in top competitions. The 20 times English champions are one of the most successful clubs on the English soil.

United used to have a stiff wage structure during Sir Alex Ferguson’s tenure but in the recent few seasons, the inflated market rate has forced the club to offer hefty wages to players to tie them up to lengthy contracts.

For instance, Alexis Sanchez is taking home a staggering £350,000 every week and is currently the highest paid players in the Premier League.

Top five highest paid Manchester United players 2019

  1. Alexis Sanchez- £505,000Top five highest paid Manchester United players 2019 Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez is currently the highest paid player at Manchester United. The Chilean arrived in January 2018 from Arsenal in a swap deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan switching his allegiance to the Gunners.

There had been galore of expectations following his arrival as we have seen his exemplary performance at the Emirates. Pep Guardiola was also tangled in a bidding war as Manchester City were also keen on the player but couldn’t beat United’s offer.

The 30 year old is pocketing a whopping £350,000 every week but has failed to match up to the hype. He has completed just one ninety minutes this season as persistent injury problems hs been a major halt in his progress.

It remains to be seen whether he stays at the club as the Red Devils are planning a squad overhaul in the summer and Sanchez could be offloaded.

2. Paul Pogba – £250,000Top 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.

3. David De Gea: £200,000Top five highest paid Manchester United players 2019 David De Gea

Perhaps Manchester United’s most consistent player in the last few seasons. David De Gea had almost joined Real Madrid a few years back a faulty fax machine came to the rescue as he went on to stay at the club and signed a new deal.

Questions have been raised over his recent form as a number of sloppy mistakes had an adverse effect on United’s result. But He is likely to be the preferred choice for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the goal when the new season starts.

4. Romelu Lukaku: £200,000Top five highest paid Manchester United players 2019 Romelu Lukaku
Romelu Lukaku hasn’t performed the way he should have done but when it comes to taking salaries the Belgian is pretty much high on the list as he takes home a cool £200,000 per week.

United needed a prolific number nine to convert all the opportunities and hence arrived Lukaku from Everton for £75m.

After having a brilliant first season the forward has failed to replicate his form. Also, the resurgence of Marcus Rashford curtailed his game time and he could be seen leaving the club in the summer.

3. Luke Shaw: £195,000Top five highest paid Manchester United players 2019 Luke Shaw

The Manchester United left back is the fifth highest earner. Luke Shaw was rewarded with a new contract for performing consistently on the left side of the defence. The 23 year old is currently on a £195,000 per week contract.

His encouraging performances saw him being selected in the England squad by Gareth Southgate. Inconsistency and injury problems had been a major concern in his United career but the defender has shown his worth this season and we could expect some fireworks from him in the next season.

Note: The data about contracts are up to date and confirmed with Manchester United official player databases but the weekly wage figures can not be 100% accurate because no clubs disclose this information to media or fans.
