Manchester United are reportedly planning to hand their already mega-rich squad huge cash bonuses, dependent on their success this season.
A report in The Sun claims United will hand their entire first-team squad a bonus of £2million a man if they lift the Premier League title this season – while the same prize fund is on offer if they triumph in the Champions League.
The bonuses would be on top of the weekly wages they already earn – with top earners Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku raking in £250,000 a week.
And the paper understands the United squad with net a cool £90,000-a-piece for winning the FA Cup, and £70,000 for the League Cup.
A United source is quoted by The Sun: “Plans are being put in place for the biggest bonus pot this club has ever seen, it’s huge.
“It’s all happening behind the scenes and will put anything that the players had previously in the shade.
“There is so much money in the game now that it can happen. The new TV deals have been a game-changer.
“There’s a lot of optimism the club can win their first title since 2013 and this is just another incentive for the players.”
United’s squad last season collected £38million between them in bonuses after lifting the Europa League following their success against Ajax in the Stockholm final.
