Man United Set the Premier League Record With a £384.2m Wage Bill

Manchester United have set a new Premier League record wage bill following financial results posted in regards to last season.

United's annual bill soared to £384.2m with the eye-watering figures related to the huge pay packet towards talisman Cristiano Ronaldo following his return to the club a year ago. 

Ronaldo earns an incredible £480,000-a-week which at the time of his return made him the best paid Premier League player by nearly £100,000-per-week.

The surge in wages takes them past local rivals Manchester City who previously paid out £354.6m in figures from last year.

United's summer business saw them sign Ronaldo for around £13.5m from Juventus, and it came following high profile moves for fellow stars including Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.

Their moves from Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid respectively cost £77m and £36m - and both are thought to be earning an estimated £350,000 per week.

Only Ronaldo and goalkeeper David de Gea earn more at Old Trafford, meaning their arrivals would also contribute towards the rapid rise.
