Jose Mourinho vs Pep Guardiola: Which Manchester boss has the highest trophy haul?
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is the Premier League’s next-highest earner taking home a cool £12.5m a year, or £240,000 a week.
So despite City sitting two places and five points ahead of United in the Premier League, Mourinho nearly earns double that of his rival Guardiola.
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is the best-paid player in the game
China national team coach Marcello Lippi is second to Mourinho on £20.3m, with sacked Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc picking up £17.3m due to a huge pay-off third and Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti fourth on £13.7m, before Guardiola.
No Premier League footballer registers in the top-five paid players in the world, with Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo top of the pile on £75.7m.
Barcelona stars Lionel Messi (£66.1m) and Neymar (£48m) are second and third respectively, while former Tottenham ace Gareth Bale is fourth on £35.4m, doubling his Real Madrid salary thanks to deals with Nissan, Adidas and Foot Locker.
Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is Premier League’s best-paid player on £21.7m.
