Manchester United Players Set For A Pay Cut After Failing To Qualify For UCL

Manchester United‘s players will take a hit of up to 25 percent in their wage packets next season after failing to qualify for the Champions League. United’s policy for several seasons has been to reward the players with a bonus if they finish in the top four, though the exact proportion of the salary varies depending on the exact terms of each player’s contract. Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Huddersfield means it is now impossible for United to qualify for next season’s Champions League, and has been told there is no such bonus scheme in place for the Europa League. The policy is not applicable to every member of United’s squad because some older contracts did not include the clause. Furthermore, some players have individual bonus schemes that were negotiated on the basis of other criteria.  Despite this, understands that most of United’s 25-man Premier League squad will be affected.
