The richest people to be involved with Manchester United, nine are higher than Sir Alex Ferguson

Playing for or managing Manchester United is a sure-fire way of earning lucrative amounts of money, but how much are the top earners from United's history worth now?

Here, we will go through Man United's ultimate rich-list, with names like David Beckham and Jose Mourinho helping to make up this impressive group of names.

Topping the list is an ex-United talisman who left the club just earlier this season in arguably disgraceful fashion, it is none other than Cristiano Ronaldo, with the Portuguese star worth a whopping £400 million according to Manchester World.

It is no surprise that the former no.7 sits atop the list, given his numerous endorsement deals and his current deal with Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr, which is reportedly worth £173 million a year.

David Beckham is up next, as the footballing legend has also made millions both on and off the pitch, totalling a reported amount of £350 million.

The former England captain has generated millions through his several endorsement dealsvfor H&M, Adidas, Pepsi and most recently, the Qatar World Cup.

The one and only Zlatan is in 3rd, and the 41-year-old is still plying his trade for AC Milan in Serie A at the ripe old age of 41.

Ibrahamovic is set to make his movie debut this year too, which will only add to his reported worth of £150 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.

United's all-time top goalscorer Wayne Rooney is next, having recently been named as MLS side DC United's manager on a reported £800,000 a year deal.

The 37-year-old had a 13 year spell at United, while also having endorsement deals with the likes of Nike, Ford and Coca-Cola that contributed to his overall net worth of an estimated £135 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Behind Rooney is the first manager on the list, Jose Mourinho, who managed United from 2016-2018 and was said to have collected a hefty severence package after being sacked.

The Portuguese also collected hefty severence packages from Chelsea and Spurs, with the amount said to have been £20 million after leaving the Red Devils in 2018, contributing to a grand total net worth of around £100 million.

Next on the list is Paul Pogba at £77 million, as he was named on the Sunday Times Young Rich List just last year, as the French star made his move to Juventus in the summer.

Raphael Varane is next, the World Cup winner and ex-Real Madrid star is reportedly on £340,000 a week and Planet Sport estimate his overall wealth at £66 million.

David De Gea follows in close behind on £60 million as United's current highest earner on £350,000 a week, though he is tied on overall wealth with ex-United and England defender Rio Ferdinand, who joined from Leeds in 2002 for a record fee but now spends the majority of his time in the studio as a pundit.

The greatest manager in United's history is next up, and he is fully deserving of his inclusion as Sir Alex Ferguson led Manchester United for 27 years to 13 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues, and five FA Cups among an abundance of other trophies, with Celebrity Net Worth claiming that Fergie is now worth £55 million.

United and Chelsea flop Radamel Falcao is next at £55 million, with Ex-Liverpool and United star Michael Owen close behind with a worth of £54 million, and current midfield destroyer Casemiro following both of these mega names with a value of £53 million.

To finish off the list, it is none other than one of United's greatest ever captains, Roy Keane.

Keane retired from football in 2006 and had a short stint in management before settling in to punditry for Sky Sports and ITV, Celebrity Net Worth claim he is now worth an impressive £50 million.
