Officials at Manchester United added some new players to their wage bill during the European transfer window this summer. The likes of Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho moved to Old Trafford during the summer. Former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku also secured a transfer to Chelsea over the summer. Players like Saul Niguez and Marcus Bettinelli also joined Romelu Lukaku at Stamford Bridge. This means that Man United and Chelsea now spend a lot of money on salaries. Below is the salary structure of some Man United and Chelsea players presented in Naira.
He has failed to make any appearance for Manchester United this season. However, this is because he recently had a shoulder surgery. The English star is one of the highest paid players at Old Trafford. He earns a weekly salary of about $277,693. In Naira, this is about 114 million.
2. Mason Mount
Frank Lampard is credited with the development of Mason Mount. The English star is one of the most talented young players in the English Premier League. He played a crucial role in Chelsea's UEFA Champions League victory last season. He earns a weekly salary of about £88,462. The Naira equivalent of this amount is 49 million.
The Brazilian international has received a lot of criticism since he moved to Old Trafford under the inspection of Jose Mourinho. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has shown that he has trust in Fred. The midfielder earns about £120,000 every week. This is about 66 million in Naira. This also means that Fred surprisingly makes more money than Mason Mount.
4. Christian Pulisic
Dortmund sold Christian Pulisic to Chelsea a few years ago. The American winger has matured into one of the most respected attackers in the English Premier League. However, his Chelsea career has been plagued by injuries. He is one of the highest paid footballers at Stamford Bridge. He makes about £150,000 every week. In Naira, this is about 83 million.
