Edinson Cavani is set to earn a packet at Manchester United once he completes his move.

The former Paris Saint-Germain striker will join the club as a free agent but will still set Ed Woodward and Co. back a fair bit.

It's a bizarre move for United who targeted right-wing and left-back as priority positions this summer but are instead brining someone in in the central striker role.

And after United's damning 6-1 loss it would seem that the defence is the position in most need of strengthening.

Yet Cavani is hours away from completing his move and fans may be interested to see his contract broken down.

Wages per week: £200,000-a-week

Wages per year: £10.4m-a-year

What he earned at PSG: £540,000-a-week (£28m-a-year)

Contract length: Two years (£20.8m)

2. Paul Pogba – Per year: £15m Per week: £290k
