Man United’s wage bill highest ever reported by English top-flight side – Mirror

Man United struggling

Manchester United’s last outing saw them beaten 1-0 by Newcastle last weekend, in a rather flat performance.

After that loss, it was revealed that Man United are currently in the midst of their worst start to a league season since the 1989/90 campaign.

The Red Devils are also 12th in the Premier League, just two points above the relegation zone.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must next prepare his side to face off with Liverpool on October 20th.

Given the form that Man United are in, added to the fact that Liverpool have won their opening eight league ties this season, it looks unlikely that United’s dismal run of form will come an to end vs Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Man United’s huge wage bill

To compound Man United’s misery, the Mirror are reporting that United have an enormous yearly wage bill of £332m.

As per the Mirror, that is said to be the highest ever wage bill reported by an English top-flight side:

The Premier League giants – currently enduring their worst start to a league campaign in 30 years – have racked up a staggering wage list that is the highest ever reported by an English top-flight side.

The eye-watering £332million yearly wage bill is an all-time high in English football and has grown by an incredible £100m (43 per cent) in the last three years alone.

If Man United were winning trophies every season, and challenging for the PL title, then perhaps that bill would be acceptable.

But with United looking like they may struggle to even finish in the top six this campaign, that bill looks rather embarrassing.
