Manchester United

Manchester United's recently-published financial result, shows the club has an annual wage bill of around £332million, a record-breaking figure in Premier League history, the DailyMail reports.

The club has also spent close to £1billion in acquiring talents, since Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down in 2013.

United continue to pay eye-watering sums to their top players in recent years, despite their woes on the pitch.

Goalkeeper David de Gea recently signed a new £375,000-a-week deal, while Paul Pogba earns £290,000-a-week.

The £332m figure also includes seven months of wages paid to Alexis Sanchez, who earns £400,000 a week at Old Trafford.

Inter Milan, who took Sanchez on loan this summer, agreed to pay close to £4.5m of the Chile international's £21m annual salary, meaning United are still having to subsidise a significant portion of his wages.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are currently 12th on the table, two points above relegation places.
