2- Jadon Sancho- £350,000/week
Jadon Sancho is paid more than- Jack Grealish, Phil Foden, Gabriel Jesus, Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, Harry Kane, Heung-min Son, just to name a few.
No prizes for guessing if he has actually outperformed any of these players.
Since arriving at United as a highly-coveted capture, Sancho’s tale has been of constant frustration. Eight goals in 51 appearances in the league in two seasons tell their own story. Beyond that, he has struggled to even nail down a place in the first XI. There have been hits and misses at right wing, left wing, and even spells as a No 10 and striker.
He looks to have lost all his confidence. He doesn’t take on players, those crispy progressive passes from his Dortmund days have all but disappeared, and his creativity has tanked. What’s left is an underconfident attacker on £350,000/week who can’t help but let games drift by him in anonymous performances.
