IN DETAIL: Wages break down for Man Utd outcast Alexis

The staggering wages of Manchester United striker Alexis Sanchez have been broken down.

The Daily Mail says Alexis takes home a staggering basic salary of £300,000 a week, as well as a net payment of £100,000 a week which he receives from a £5million-a-year image rights deal.

In addition, United are required to pay £5m in agent's fees to his representative Fernando Felicevich over the course of the contract, and all of this together with additional bonuses take the total overall figure to an eyewatering £560,000 a week.

It is little wonder, then, that there are currently no clubs willing to take the risk on signing an injury-prone and out-of-form Sanchez, and United may have to pay at least some of his salary themselves to get him off the books.
