Man Utd wages revealed as Marcus Rashford set to become top earner after stunning new deal | The Sun
MARCUS RASHFORD is set to become Manchester United's highest-paid player after agreeing on a lucrative new contract.
SunSport revealed in June that the Red Devils are planning a wage swap with Rashford's salary poised to nearly double as David de Gea's is almost cut in half.
The switch would instantly make the England international, 25, the biggest earner in Erik ten Hag's squad on £375,000 a week.
Rashford will sit £25,000 above Casemiro and Jadon Sancho and £35,000 above Raphael Varane – the only other Man Utd stars breaking the £300,000-a-week mark.
Anthony Martial and Bruno Fernandes earn £250k and £240k respectively, with all other United players on or below £200k.
Rashford's wage boost would rocket his salary by an extra £8.4million-a-year over five seasons — with United holding a 12-month extension option.

It comes following a sensational season for the Manchester-born forward.
He contributed 30 goals and 11 assists in 56 appearances for United during the 2022/23 campaign.
But Rashford's delight is bad news for De Gea.
