Manchester United are eight in the Premier League after 12 games following Sunday’s 3-1 defeat against Manchester City and sit seven points off a top-four spot.
Though the club splashes millions on the purchase of new players, they haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013 and have not made the Champions League semifinals since reaching the final in 2011.
Nevertheless, United chiefs are still adamant that money will help get United back to the top of world football.
Football database TransferMarket has revealed the 10 most valuable players who play at Manchester United. The website uses a whole host of factors including age, length of contract and statistics to determine how much each player is worth in the current transfer market.
Romelu Lukaku is the most valuable player in Manchester United with €100m transfer fee. The Belgian joined Red Devils from Everton in the summer of 2017.
The Belgian signed a five-year contract at the Old Trafford with the option for a further 12 months.
Lukaku enjoyed a fine debut season in Manchester, scoring 27 goals in all competitions before going on to help Belgium reach the semi-finals of the World Cup.
The World Cup winner is second in the chart with €90m market value. Manchester United signed Paul Pogba in a world record transfer in August 2016. The France International came through United’s academy and moved to Italian team Juventus. He finally rejoined United for €90m in the summer transfer window of 2016.
Manchester United next most valuable player is Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea. The Spanish international is still to commit his long-term future to Old Trafford, despite months of negotiations with the club’s hierarchy.
De Gea has only won one Premier League title in his eight years at United despite being generally regarded as the best goalkeeper in the world.
Marcus Rashford is a key squad player for Jose Mourinho at Manchester United. A graduate of the youth academy, he made an incredible start to his career and is a full England international.
Rashford, 21, has struggled for game time in Jose Mourinho’s side this season.
