Four Manchester United Players with the Highest Salaries, How Are They Performing? - Cristiano Ronaldo is listed as the player with the highest salary at Manchester United for the 2022/2023 season. So, is Ronaldo's performance comparable to the salary he receives?

MU is known as a club that is royal in providing salaries to its players. Reporting from The Sun's page, Casemiro's arrival immediately made him the third most expensive paid player at MU.

The Brazilian passport player has a salary of 18.2 million pounds (Rp320 billion) for a year. The Red Devils do have many star players in their squad. Most of them receive a very large fee at Old Trafford.

Including Casemiro, there are four players who are currently paid handsomely to perform in every game and give victory to United. However, are the players' contributions commensurate with their high salaries?

Jadon Sancho

Jadon Sancho has appeared captivating under the tutelage of Erik ten Hag. Sancho has scored three goals for the Red Devils amid the stagnant form of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Having had difficulty showing his best performance after coming to Old Trafford from Dortmund, Sancho slowly began to show his best performance. He proved he deserved a high fee at United.

Sancho reveals the trigger for his revival at Manchester United. He had a good pre-season and got to know his team-mates better.

"I got to know the players better after missing pre-season last year and I'm very happy to have scored," Sancho told BT Sport.

The 22-year-old earns a salary of 350,000 pounds per week and makes him the number four player who receives a high salary in the Red Devils squad.


Casemiro previously signed from Real Madrid for a transfer of 70 million euros. Although a 'new kid', Casemiro immediately entered the list of players with the highest salaries at MU.

The 30-year-old has a four-year contract plus the option of an additional year. He also earns £350,000 per week.

Since arriving from Los Blancos, Casemiro has only started once against Real Sociedad in the Europa League. In total, he has made seven appearances for Manchester United in all competitions.

David de Gea

De Gea is the second highest paid player at Old Trafford. He earns around £375,000 per week.

David de Gea has been at Manchester United since 2011 after signing from Atletico Madrid. Since then De Gea has become an irreplaceable player in goal.

De Gea has good abilities as a goalkeeper, although de Gea's characteristics are considered less suitable for Erik ten Hag. Where the coach wants the goalkeeper to play the role of sweeper-keeper. This role has so far made it difficult for the Spanish goalkeeper.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo is the highest paid player at Manchester United. The Portuguese star earns a fee of 480 thousand pounds per week.

Had flashed with the performance he showed last season, Ronaldo's performance this season is still not optimal. Ronaldo missed part of the pre-season session. So, he had to accept sitting on the bench in the first few games of the 2022/2023 season.

Ronaldo now starts many matches from the bench and enters during the second half. The 37-year-old has only scored one goal in eight appearances.
