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

Haaland Breaks Messi, Ronaldo’s Special Record

Erling Haaland has recently broken Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s record. The striker, who scored in Dortmund’s 4-0 win over Schalke this weekend, has better goal stats this season than Ronaldo and Messi’s numbers at his age.

Before leaving the Austrian side RB Salzburg this January, the striker had netted 28 goals in as many as 22 matches for them this season. Haaland has already scored 13 goals, across competitions, for Dortmund in the ongoing 2019-20 campaign.

At just 19 years, nine months and 23 days, Haaland – with a tally of 41 goals in 2019-20 season – Haaland is the first soccer player, on this planet, to get to 40 or more goals for the first time in a single season as a teenager.

When Ronaldo first scored 40 or more goals in a campaign, he was aged 23 years, three months, and six days. He clinched the feat with Manchester United when he had netted 42 goals during the 2007-08 campaign. It took the Portuguese seven seasons to do so in comparison to Haaland’s four seasons.

Ronaldo’s record was broken by his arch-rival Messi, who had netted 40 or more goals in a single campaign when he was aged 22 years, 10 months and six days. The Barcelona skipper bagged the record during the 2009-10 season when he scored 47 goals. Even Messi took longer to score 40 or more goals in a single season as he needed two campaigns more than Haaland’s four.

Other notable players such as Robert Lewandowski and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang managed it at 27, Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, and England’s Harry Kane were quicker to reach the milestone at 25 and 24 respectively, and Messi’s Barca teammate, Luis Suarez at 23, as reported by Marca.

These numbers are the testimony to the fact that Haaland is tipped to be the future Ballon d’Or winner along with the likes of France’s Kylian Mbappe and Brazil’s Neymar.

While Germany’s Bundesliga has resumed after a break of nearly two months due to the coronavirus pandemic, other top-flight soccer leagues such as the Premier , La Liga, and Serie A are yet to restart.

Dortmund, who are four points behind Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich can expect more fireworks from Haaland as the striker believes he is yet to return to his best, post the long break, and that can happen in the coming days. “I’m not the same. I have not been playing games, as you say, for seven weeks,” the Norwegian said after Dortmund’s win over Schalke.
