The striker’s incredible performances earned him interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs, including United.

However, the France international has signed a two-year contract extension with the Bundesliga outfit until 2026.

And now, the 24-year-old is the club’s top earner as he cashes in a whopping £131,000 per week, according to Bild who revealed the club’s top 10 earners.

Nkunku is followed by Emil Forsberg, who bags £114,000 per week, and Peter Gulacsi, who’s on a weekly £98,000.

Lukas Klostermann and Andre Silva complete the top five with £90,000 and £87,000 respectively.

Angelino is on £82,000 whereas Dani Olmo, Dominik Szoboszlai and Willi Orban make £74,000.

Benjamin Henrichs completes the top 10 with £65,000 per week.

United kept tabs on Nkunku as new manager Erik ten Hag is looking to rebuild at Old Trafford.


Ten Hag needs a replacement for Edinson Cavani, who left as a free agent.

The Dutchman is also likely to lose star man Cristiano Ronaldo, who asked to leave Old Trafford if a substantial offer arrives because he wishes to play in the Champions League next season.
