A list of Manchester United players' wages has been revealed after it was rumoured that Bruno Fernandes would be offered a new £240,000-a-week deal.
The new deal will keep Fernandes at Old Trafford until 2027, but he would still earn lesser than the club's highest-paid players - David De Gea and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“I’m trying to enjoy the football, you know. I think I want to be a coach. Honestly, I would like to be a coach,” he told United’s official website last year.
“I don’t know which team I would like to manage. Of course, the biggest team if I can manage Manchester United, I will be happy. I can leave now just some words so if people see this, if I’m a manager in the future, the fans can make some pressure to bring me as a coach!
"But I think I would like to be a coach in the future. I’m not sure but for what I feel for football, for the feeling I have, I think I have to continue to be inside of football because my whole life is about this. So I think, in the future, it needs to be with football too.”
Earlier this week, L'Equipe revealed that Paris Saint-Germain have the highest-earning players in Ligue 1, with Neymar earning over €4m-a-month, and Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe ranking second and third on the list.
The French outlet also reported that United players dominate a similar list of Premier League players. Kevin de Bruyne is the only non-Red Devil to break into the top five, with Ronaldo, De Gea, Jadon Sancho, and Raphael Varane taking up the other four spots.
Spotrac have confirmed that Ronaldo is the club's highest-paid player, earning £510,000-a-week, while De Gea is on £375k, and Sancho isn't far behind on £350,000.
