SANCHO SET FOR 2ND PLACE IN UTD PAY LIST
Manchester United are set to make Jadon Sancho their second highest earner after agreeing personal terms on a £91million contract.
SunSport revealed this week that the Red Devils have struck a deal with the England winger, worth £350,000-a-week over five years.
Borussia Dortmund are insisting United increase their offer of £61million to £78m, with a further £10m in add-ons, but this is expected to happen.
United expect the deal to go through smoothly after a summer of wrangling last year when they refused to meet the German club’s £110m price.
And Sancho, who will seal a return to Manchester after the Euros, will slot in behind David de Gea in the club’s wage list.
The Spaniard continues to top the list, raking in £375,000 per week – totalling £19.5million a year.
Sancho’s arrival means that 14 first-team players will earn £100,000 or more per week, with Paul Pogba (£290k), Anthony Martial (£250k), and Marcus Rashford (£200k) all earning £200,000 or more weekly.
That number will rise to 15 should Juan Mata agree another contract to extend his stay at Old Trafford.
