Norwich, Leeds, and Brentford all spend less than £25million per year on player wages – the amount of cash the Portuguese, 36, receives.

Ronaldo – the best paid player in the Prem – earns a staggering £480,000-a-week, which adds up to £24.96MILLION each year.

In comparison, Daniel Farke’s Norwich spend £24.24m every 12 months on player wages – which covers their entire 31-man squad.

That’s according to Spotrac, who also claim Marceo Bielsa’s Leeds have an annual wage bill of £18m for their 25-man squad.

Thomas Frank’s Brentford have the smallest salary budget in the Prem, paying their 28 senior players just £13m each year.

Their biggest earners include goalkeeper David de Gea – who takes home £375,000-a-week – and £350,000-a-week winger Jadon Sancho.

Red Devils fans will be concerned by the news as they haven’t won a major trophy since May 2017, with their last Prem title coming in 2013.

European champions Chelsea are in second place – splurging £163m in annual wages – while Prem holders Manchester City spend £143m.

The Blues’ highest earner is striker Romelu Lukaku, who agreed on a £325,000-a-week deal when he re-joined the West London club in August.

Man City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne was the Prem’s best paid player before Ronaldo’s return, earning a staggering £385,000-a-week.

Leicester are one of the division’s savviest clubs, recording back-to-back fifth-place finishes by spending just £55,000,000-a-year on wages.

Liverpool (£139m), Arsenal (£100m), Tottenham (£79m), Everton (£76m) and West Ham (£63m) all have a greater wage bill than the Foxes.
