Two Manchester United players have been named on the list of the top 20 Richest players in world football.

The list compiled by popular media outlet Goal took into account the total income earned by the players.

Manchester United players Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez made the list.

Pogba is the 19th richest player in world football with the total income of £20m, while Sanchez has a total income of £26.3m and he’s at no. 7.

French World Cup winner Pogba returned to Manchester United from Italian champions Juventus in 2016 in a then world-record deal worth £89m.

Pogba had earlier left Old Trafford for Juventus in 2012 on a free transfer and it was in Turin that he began to realise his immense potential before the big money move back to Manchester United.

His form suffered a great deal at the start of this season while Jose Mourinho was the Manchester United manager but he has returned to good form following the sack of the former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager.

The appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the Red Devils boss has coincided with his return to form.

Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez signed for Manchester United last year from Arsenal in a swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

He has been able to reprise his Arsenal form at the club since joining in January 2018.
