Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United, 2022/23

Manchester United are one of the world's biggest football clubs, and with that status comes one of the greatest wage bills in the game.

Indeed, it has been revealed that during the 2021/22 season, the Red Devils spent a Premier League record £384 million on wages, which was a rise of £62m from the previous campaign.

This came off the back of a high-profile summer transfer window, in which they signed the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, who command large salaries.

Although they have since offloaded some of their biggest earners, such as Paul Pogba, they have been very active in the summer transfer market once more, with Casemiro and Antony among their recruits.

So, who is their top-earner, and who should perhaps have a better salary?

Ronaldo is now by far the highest earning player not just at Man Utd but in the entire Premier League, taking home a reported yearly salary of £25m until 2023, with the option for another year.

This salary saw him surpass David de Gea, who had been Man Utd's top earner since signing a new deal a few seasons ago.

Three out of the top five highest-paid players at Old Trafford were summer 2021 signings, as Sancho takes home £18.2m a year while Varane is on slightly less at £17.7m.

Surprisingly, star player Bruno Fernandes is only the seventh-highest earner and is notably lagging Anthony Martial, who had been expected to leave the club until an uptick in form under Ten Hag.

The captain of the club, Harry Maguire, earns less than half of Ronaldo and De Gea, taking a salary of £9.9m per year.

Towards the other end of the scale, there is surprisingly small wages for the likes of Scott McTominay and Tyrell Malacia.

McTominay, in his status as a regular starter, will be hoping for an increase in salary over the next year.
