Christopher Nkunku

MANCHESTER UNITED transfer target Christopher Nkunku leads the way in RB Leipzig’s wage bill.

Nkunku enjoyed a stunning season with Leipzig as he amassed a staggering total of 32 goals and 20 assists in 50 matches across all competitions.

The striker’s incredible performances earned him interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs, including United.

However, the France international has signed a two-year contract extension with the Bundesliga outfit until 2026.

And now, the 24-year-old is the club’s top earner as he cashes in a whopping £131,000 per week, according to Bild who revealed the club’s top 10 earners.

Nkunku is followed by Emil Forsberg, who bags £114,000 per week, and Peter Gulacsi, who’s on a weekly £98,000.

Lukas Klostermann and Andre Silva complete the top five with £90,000 and £87,000 respectively.

Angelino is on £82,000 whereas Dani Olmo, Dominik Szoboszlai and Willi Orban make £74,000.

Benjamin Henrichs completes the top 10 with £65,000 per week.

United kept tabs on Nkunku as new manager Erik ten Hag is looking to rebuild at Old Trafford.

Ten Hag needs a replacement for Edinson Cavani, who left as a free agent.

The Dutchman is also likely to lose star man Cristiano Ronaldo, who asked to leave Old Trafford if a substantial offer arrives because he wishes to play in the Champions League next season.
