Manchester United are closer and closer to sealing a place in the Champions League next season, and United cut the gap behind fourth place to just one point after beating Aston Villa 3-0.
If our players ever needed some motivation to play their hearts out and make sure we qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season, the club may have just given them one!
According to The Athletic, Man United have promised the players a 25% pay raise if we qualify for the Champions League.
United is currently sitting in fifth on the league table, two points off third-placed Chelsea, and one off Leicester, who are in fourth.
United are on a good run and genuinely has a good chance of making it to Europe’s elite competition next term, if we win our next four matches.
Chelsea and Leicester have some tough games coming up, while United’s remaining fixtures are ones we could easily win – at least, on paper.
United are still in the Europa League, and could qualify automatically, if we lift the trophy in a few weeks.
