- Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba will get massive wage cut at Manchester United after the club missed next season's Champions League
- Man United were held to a 1-1 draw against already relegated Huddersfield over the weekend
- The disappointing result effectively ended United's slim chances of qualifying for Champions League
Manchester United's failure to qualify for Champions League football is set to hugely affect two of its stars with massive pay cuts.
According to a UK Metro report citing sources at Football Leaks, Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez now face wage deductions should they remain at the club next season.
The duo's contracts state that a wage reduction would be triggered should they fail to help the club to qualify for Champions League.
Unlike Sanchez, Pogba is set to suffer most with his contract including a host of incentive bonuses that will now see the Frenchman lose up to £1.8 million.
The midfielder's commercial rights are also set to drop significantly from £3.125m to £2.87m owing to his now potential failure to make an appearance in the European elite competition.
Meanwhile, Sanchez’s reported £500,000-a-week wages will take a £125,000 cut and reduced to £375,000 for next season.
Both Sanchez and Pogba have widely been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with this new development expected to further throw their future at United into more scrutiny.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Isaac Mbenza‘s 60th minute goal ensured Huddersfield Town battled Manchester United to a 1-1 draw in a tough Premier League clash on Sunday, May 5, at the John Smith’s Stadium.
The result means Man United quest for a top four finish is over and they will also end the current season without a trophy.
