United generated over £615 million in revenue last year and made a profit of £50 million but their wage bill is also on the rise largely down to the fact they handed out massive contracts to Pogba and Ibrahimovic last season while some of the current players like De Gea got improved contracts. United’s spent £232 million on player wages last season the highest in premier league. We breakdown the entire United squad, contracts and player salaries.

Wage Bill 2017-18: Unlike the previous season’s United wage bill is set to decrease in 2017 thanks to Ibrahimovic, Rooney and Bastian Schweinsteiger no longer on United wage bill.
