This report suggests Manchester United are the highest spenders when it comes to wages. Casemiro is said to be the club’s highest earner, taking home £350,000 on a weekly basis. He is closely followed by Raphael Varane (£340,000) and Marcus Rashford (£300,000). However to tackle this huge problem Premier League is introducing a new rule which will ensure clubs’ spending on transfers, wages and agent fees will be limited to five times the amount earned by the top-flight’s bottom club in TV and prize money. Moreover City  were one of the clubs who voted against the introduction of the spending cap, along with United and Aston Villa. Chelsea were the only side to abstain.
