Manchester United (€454m) is fourth on the list of European clubs with the highest wage bills, but they are struggling to consolidate their top four spot and only have one trophy to their name this season.
To get more value for the huge wages they pay, here's the shortlist of players that should be made to renegotiate their contract on lower terms or get sold if they refuse.
1. Jadon Sancho.
The former Borussia Dortmund man is one of the highest paid players in the Premier League, but he's yet to score up to 10 league goals since he moved to the red half of Manchester two years ago.
Sancho currently earn £350k every week, but he's yet to show he deserves to pocket that much, so the United board should find a way to reduce his salary or cut their losses and sell him if he refuses to comply.
2. Anthony Martial.
The Frenchman has spent more time on the treatment table than he's played on the pitch this season, so perhaps it's time for both parties to reach an agreement on whether to sell him or reduce his wages if he desperately wants to stay.
Martial earns not less than £250k on a weekly basis, so considering the fact that he offers little on the pitch because of his incessant injuries, his wages should be lessened.
3. Harry Maguire.
Maguire may decide to leave this summer in search of regular playing time, but if he decides to stick around for maybe one more season, it should come at a cost of reducing his salary (£189k per week).
4. David de Gea.
The Spanish goalie is presently the highest earner at Old Trafford, but with his contract expiring soon, Man United's hierarchy should propose a lower contract or sign another keeper as his replacement if he refuses to cooperate.
