Manchester United's wage bill has jumped 23.1 per cent over the past year.
The playing staff budget has increased to the £354million a year, thanks to the addition of some big hitters at Old Trafford.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane all arrived in the summer, with their presence playing a huge role in the 23.1 per cent jump in wages.
The club's revenue for the quarter increased in total, up from £109m in 2020 to £126.5m, with the club enjoying a boost from the return of fans to home matches.
United also saw a boost in their transfer earnings, as they £17.4m, largely thanks to the sale of Daniel James to Leeds and the sell-on clause triggered by Romelu Lukaku's transfer from Inter to Chelsea.
