Premier League giants Manchester United had one hell of a summer transfer window with the club bringing in players like Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford.

However, once again, the Red Devils have had to break their wage budget and pay these players extra-ordinary salaries in order to lure them to their club.

Ronaldo joined on a wage package of £510,000-per-week. With both Sancho and Varane reportedly earning around £350,000 a week, that comes to over £60 million in wages for the three players every single year.

The above aggregate amount is more than both Leicester City and West Ham United's total annual wage bill.

Newly promoted side Brentford pay £12.8m per year wages to their players, which is five times less than what United pay for their three marquee signings.

Meanwhile, the Premier League have revealed the total amount of money spent by the top clubs this summer in the transfer window. Know more about it, here.
