Pogba and De Bruyne among Man Utd & Man City players on Sunday Times Rich List

Manchester United and Manchester City have both seen members of their squads feature on the Sunday Times Young Rich List.

The list ranks the wealthiest people in the UK under the age of 30, which is ultimately topped by the Duke of Westminster.

However, a third of the top 50 have made their fortune in football and both Manchester clubs feature on the list.

United midfielder Paul Pogba is the highest of them, ranking at 12th with a wealth total of £50m which has risen £13m in the past year.

However, the France World Cup winner is not the highest-ranked footballer overall, with that honour falling to Gareth Bale – who returned to Tottenham last summer on loan from Real Madrid.

Pogba ‘s teammates on the list are David de Gea, sat 19th with a wealth of £34m, along with Anthony Martial (36th, £20m), Luke Shaw (41st, £19m) and former United striker Odion Ighalo (32rd, £18m).

While Pogba and De Gea have featured before, with the Spaniard’s wealth increasing by £10m, Martial, Shaw and Ighalo are all new entries this year.
