Gary Neville slams Manchester United salary cap as radical and suggests players would be reluctant to join

Gary Neville has had his say on the rumoured salary cap being implemented at Manchester United.

There have been reports of United’s hierarchy introducing a new cap of £200,000 per week to avoid jealousy in the dressing room, as well as unnecessarily high outgoings.

Currently, the highest earner at Old Trafford is David de Gea on an estimated £375,000 a week, though this is expected to change imminently as he is in talks with the club regarding an extended contract on lower pay.

Other top earners include Jadon Sancho, Casemiro and Raphael Varane. Marcus Rashford could move his way up the list too, as he is in talks over a new contract – with the club keen to keep him in Red for the foreseeable future, especially with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain making their interest clear.

The former United captain took to Twitter to weigh in on the new premise, which is yet to be confirmed, and suggested it would deter players from signing for the club.

  1. Nev’s right, of course. I can see the argument that wages are obscenely high, but, that’s how it is at present. Players who just want to play for United is an ideal, but accept 200k when they could earn close to double? They’d REALLY have to love United. Different if ALL clubs capped at that level, but it won’t work unilaterally.
