Star Man Utd trio want out if top four failure

Manchester United face an exodus of stars should they fail to qualify for the Champions League next season.

The Red Devils' hopes of finishing in the top four in the Premier League this season took a huge blow over the weekend following their 4-0 hammering at Everton .

The Guardian says David De Gea, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku all want to play in the Champions League season, and will be willing to leave Old Trafford.

This latest report comes after it was claimed Pogba and De Gea both demanded huge pay rises amid uncertainty over United's participation in the competition.

Failure to qualify for the elite European club competition would see every United player have their basic salary reduced by a whopping 25 per cent.

This was the case when they last missed out on Champions League qualification before Jose Mourinho's arrival in 2016.
