Manchester United’s squad is one that needs work. With several players with winding down contracts, the club could lose some key faces in the not too distant future.
Now, according to The Sun, it is being reported that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s problems could worsen if United miss out on the Premier League’s top four. Their exclusive states that several of the Red Devils’ ‘top stars’ could face up to a 25% pay cut should a failure to deliver Champions League football for next season occur.
The only player named in the article is Paul Pogba, with The Sun stating that it’d only boost Real Madrid’s chance at signing the 26-year-old Frenchman when the summer transfer window opens.
That leaves United in a precarious situation. Playing in the Champions League is the pinnacle for the majority of Europe’s best players. Not only could United stars move on, it also makes acquiring top talents even harder.
With a handful of league games left, United are well in the mix, although losing back-to-back away games to Arsenal and Wolves certainly hasn’t helped the cause. Next up is a tricky game against West Ham United which is by no means a guaranteed three points.
