Last season it was said that United were offering the highest wages around as they looked to make up for the relative lack of attraction in playing for a side that was without European football after a disastrous David Moyes season, but it seems that with the new £750 million Adidas deal and a bumper new television rights agreement, United are continuing to fritter beans at an impressive rate. Here are the details:
Memphis Depay joined from PSV, and Morgan Schneiderlin joined from Southampton, and both those players are reported to be on £150,000 a week.
Matteo Darmian joined from Torino to earn £100,000 a week, a tripling in his previous wages.
Bastian Schweinsteiger was presumably impressed by the financial security of signing with United, gaining a three-year contract at £220,000.
They earn almost as much as we do at the Busby Babe.
