Manchester United wage bill soaring…

Manchester United’s club wage bill has increased by almost 1.6 million euros a week compared to the third quarter of last year. That’s a hike of almost 25 percent.

There are no prizes for guessing the main driver of that increase. It’s Cristiano Ronaldo, as the Portuguese returned to the UK to assume a weekly wage of 655,000 euros a week – the highest wage in Premier League history.

The arrivals of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Tom Heaton also contributed to this extraordinary outlay.

If Solskjaer does go, though, it will also mean yet more managerial compensation to go with the exorbitant sums already paid out to previous bosses David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho in the last eight years.
