The cost of signing Alexis Sanchez for watering was due to Man Utd's salary bill exceeding 10 percent


T.Manchester United's move to Alexis Sanchez was highlighted on Thursday, as Ed Woodward supported Jose Mourinho and the players were "united" in their effort to capture the sad start of the team by the season.

United's latest quarterly accounts showed that the salary had exceeded 10 percent due to Sanchez's enormous salary.

Sanchez arrived from Arsenal in January with a £ 350,000 deal a week, increasing to £ 500,000 a week with bonuses and image rights, and the impact of the cost is reflected in a 10.2% increase in wages to £ 77 million for the three months until 30 September of this year.

United gave a new contract with midfielder Marouane Fellaini and signed Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant at the time, even if some of these costs were offset by the departures of Daley Blind and Sam Johnstone, but Sanchez's capture is the main factor behind the huge wage growth.

United had little to return, but Sanchez is said to be looking for an exit from Old Trafford just 10 months in his four-year contract. Chile's opponent defeated Manchester City with 3-1 on Sunday, which lost the club bloody in eighth place, 12 points from the Premier League leaders and was reported to cut a lone figure in Manchester.
