[SPORT NEWS]Man United bonuses: Financial incentives exposed for Jose Mourinho's men this season

Financial incentives have been revealed for Jose Mourinho's men this season, and it appears Champions League football is the club's main priority.

Manchester United must qualify for Europe's elite club competition or face having their 10-year Adidas deal worth £750million cut by half.

And as an added push for top stars to ensure United return to the Champions League, The Sun claim each player will earn a bonus £100,000.
There is still an outside chance of the Red Devils being crowned Premier League champions this term, and that would pocket them all a whopping £200,000.

However, the EFL Cup is much lower from a financial standpoint, as that generates just £50,000 each.

Winners of the FA Cup are given a total of £1.8m, and United are still competing with Wigan drawn at home on Monday for the fourth round.
On the bonuses, a source told The Sun: “The United lads are only £50k-a-man to lift the EFL Cup. It is way down the bonus scheme.

"It is all about a top-four finish this year, as they [the club] would lose half of their £75m-a-year Adidas money for missing out on the Champions League for a second year.

“Their individual bonuses for winning the Premier League are worth £200,000 and for finishing top four is £100,000.”
