Man United stars could face massive wage drop for European failure

Manchester United's players face a pay cut of up to 25 per cent if they fail to qualify for the Champions League, according to reports today.

The policy, backed by former manager Alex Ferguson and chief executive David Gill, was introduced three years ago and, while it does not apply to all senior players, new signings and players renewing contracts have had to accept it.

"United aren't the only Premier League club with this policy. They felt it was fair players should be rewarded for reaching the top four but also share the financial pain if they miss out,” a club source revealed.

The report would also throws Wayne Rooney's future at Old Trafford into further doubt, particularly if United finish outside the top four this season and fail to win the Champions League.

The England striker has just 18 months remaining on his contract and talks are due to begin on a new deal, but it is unlikely he would accept a wage cut clause.
