Alexis Sanchez total wages received from Manchester United has crossed the expenditure on Mohamed Salah’s transfer.
Liverpool have made some smart business recently and have extracted equal benefits, and undoubtedly Mohamed Salah is one of the greatest buy by the Reds in this decade.
On the other hand, Manchester United hiring Alexis Sanchez on a massive wage bill is probably the biggest transfer blunder by the Red Devils in recent years.
To emphasize further, Sanchez total salary paid by Manchester United has crossed the total amount paid by Liverpool to Roma for the transfer of Salah.
Sanchez is among the highest paid players in the Premier League with his staggering £500,000-a-week wages has reportedly crossed the £41 million mark in the 82 weeks he has stayed at the Old Trafford.
On the other hand, the Reds only paid £36.9 million to secure the services of the Egyptian International. Comparing the returns both the players have given to their clubs, Sanchez is a financial liability to the Red Devils, whereas, Salah is considered one of the best bargains in the modern market.
The Chilean International is even on the verge of being sent to Inter Milan, as the Red Devils are ready to offload him. Considering, Sanchez has only scored 5 goals in total for the club ever since arriving, the reason for his promoted departure is understood.
Meanwhile, Salah has romped his way to 72 goals – winning two Premier League Golden Boots – and bagged the Champions League.
The total of £41 million also means that United have paid in more in wages than Liverpool did to buy their other two forwards – Sadio Mane (£34 million) and Roberto Firmino (£21 million).
Although, even Liverpool have spent massively on these players in terms of wages, but this is to highlight how Manchester United can have spent these figures elsewhere and wisely.
