With players like Radamel Falcao, Angel di Maria, Wayne Rooney, and Robin van Persie on monstrous wages, it’s hardly surprising to find out that that United has such a colossal bill.
Respected journalist Martyn Ziegler confirmed the news on Twitter, also announcing that City were confident of complying with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules this year after being punished for their infringements last season.

The summer acquisitions of Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao definitely will have pushed the bill up some way, with the Colombian loanee on a reported £300,000 per week.
