BRUNO FERNANDES is closing in on a new £250,000-a-week Manchester United contract.
But despite the bumper pay rise, Fernandes would only be United’s SIXTH top earner.
Bruno Fernandes will only be United’s sixth top earner when he signs a new £250k-a-week deal SunSport exclusively revealed Fernandes, 27, is set to pen a five-year Red Devils contract following months of talks.
And the Portugal ace will see his United wages rise from £190k-a-week to £250k-a-week.
That means Fernandes will pocket an astonishing £13million each year instead of his current £9.4m.
But the Old Trafford icon will still be way off the earnings of five teammates.
Firstly, Fernandes’ pay rise will put him on level terms with strikers Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial.
But midfield partner Paul Pogba currently pockets £40k-a-week more, giving him an annual salary of over £15m.

Things move up a gear with fourth-top earner Raphael Varane, who only joined Man Utd from Real Madrid this summer.
The defender signed a long-term deal worth £17.7m-per-year, which works out at £340k each week.
Fellow new signing Jadon Sancho gets an extra £10k per week, giving him an annual salary of £18.2m.
Goalkeeper David De Gea had been United’s top earner before the summer, pocketing £375k-a-week for a yearly fee of £19.5m.

But unsurprisingly, global superstar and legendary forward Cristiano Ronaldo is now number one at the Theatre of Dreams.
Ronnie is well clear of De Gea with weekly wages worth £480k.
That means he banks a mind-blowing £25m each year – almost DOUBLE Fernandes’ new wages.
