Manchester United face a big hit to their pay packet should they miss out on the Champions League.
The Sunday People says a handful of Old Trafford's stars have clauses in their contracts with 25 per cent pay cuts if they fail to feature in the competition - even though that has been a rarity at United.
The basic salary of several will be slashed, with the chance of lucrative bonuses also off the agenda.
An insider revealed: "It's a clause that a lot of the lads have.
"It's not been an issue before but it will be now."
