This Sunday’s Manchester derby could be the most expensive match-up ever.
Both teams have spent huge sums in transfer fees and their expected starting XIs for the Old Trafford clash have a combined cost of almost £700m.
And that’s with £93m Paul Pogba suspended, £50m John Stones and £49m Benjamin Mendy injured, and £28m Luke Shaw out of favour.
Premier League leaders Manchester City could have £358.4m worth of talent on the pitch, while hosts United would almost match that with their predicted £334.2m line-up.

Manchester United’s most expensive players on Sunday are likely to be £90m Romelu Lukaku and £57.6m Anthony Martial.
Meanwhile, the visitors will have £54.5m Kevin De Bruyne in their ranks, along with £50m Kyle Walker and £49m Raheem Sterling.
That would give the teams a combined total of £692.6m, which Sky Sports believes would be a new high.
