Despite spending loads of cash on new recruits, Manchester United have made their worst start to the top fight campaign in 30 years. In addition to this, the club has reported the spend on player salaries, which happens to be the highest ever reported by an English side.
On Monday, it was revealed that the club’s £332million yearly wage bill is the highest so far and has also risen by £100m in the past three years.
Goalkeeper David de Gea’s new contact sees him earn £375,000-a-week while Paul Pogba earns £290,000-a-week.

The sum also includes the partial wage paid by the club for Alexis Sanchez, who’s on loan at Inter Milan. The club agreed to pay a sum of close to £4.5m for the Chile international, on his one year loan at the Italian club.
Despite having some of the star players at the club and paying them high wages, Manchester United have failed to deliver the expected performances out on the field.
