Man Utd wage bill revealed with Dean Henderson set to take home same amount as Bruno Fernandes after new contract

DEAN HENDERSON is set to receive a bumper new contract earning himself as much as Bruno Fernandes.

SunSport revealed Henderson, 23, is on the verge of signing a mega new four-year Old Trafford deal worth £100,000 a week.

The England goalkeeper only signed a new £60k-a-week deal last year and is a clear sign Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants him to battle David De Gea for the No1 spot.

His new deal will also come with the option of a further 12 months, which can be activated at any time.

It also means United would be splashing out £575k a week just on their goalkeepers, with Spaniard De Gea earning £350k, Sergio Romero (£70k) and Lee Grant (£30k).

Henderson would equal winter signings Fernandes and Odion Ighalo as the club's 11th highest paid player.

Mason Greenwood also received a pay rise during his breakthrough into the first team, having being offered £40,000-a-week.

It was revealed last season United had by far the biggest wage bill in the Premier League – paying more than double the division's average.

The Old Trafford side paid out a staggering £352million on salaries – both players and other staff – during the course of the 2018/19 campaign.

That equated to a wages-to-revenue ratio of 56 per cent, as the club took in a total of £627m across the year.

In the previous season, 2017/18, United's wage bill stood at £296m while revenue was £590m meaning the ratio was 50 per cent.

Last season 11 United stars earned more than £100,000 a week or more.
