Only TWO Man United players will earn more than Casemiro as club's monster wage bill revealed

Only TWO Man United players will earn more than Casemiro as club's monster wage bill revealed

Casemiro set to join Man United from Real Madrid.

Casemiro is set to become the third highest earner at Manchester United ahead of his proposed move from Real Madrid.

Man United have reached an agreement with the Spanish giants to sign the 30-year-old.

The Red Devils will pay an initial £60 million, having tabled a lucrative four-year deal.

It's reported that the Brazilian midfielder will earn a staggering £350,000-a-week at Man United, making him the third highest paid player at the club.

Only Cristiano Ronaldo and David De Gea will earn more than Casemiro, who's level with Jadon Sancho.

Ronaldo pockets an eye-watering £480,000-a-week while De Gea collects £375,000-a-week.

Casemiro, though, is on a better wage packet than former teammate Raphael Varane who receives £340,000-a-week.

Anthony Martial, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford earn £250,000-a-week, £240,000-a-week and £200,000-a-week respectively.

Club captain Harry Maguire earns £190,000-a-week ahead of summer signing Christian Eriksen and Luke Shaw, who both pick up £150,000-a-week.

Fred, Victor Lindelof, Lisandro Martinez and Donny van de Beek all rake in £120,000-a-week.

Man United are closing in on another big talent on a huge wage as Erik ten Hag will be hoping Casemiro can sure up his midfield amid a terrible start to the new Premier League season.

Ten Hag's side have lost their opening two matches to Brighton and Brentford as they host Liverpool on Monday.

Man United are currently rooted to the bottom of the table as they hope to confirm a deal for the five-time Champions League winner before their clash against Liverpool.

If all goes well, Casemiro could be in line to make his Man United debut against Southampton on August 27.
