BIG BONUS! Manchester United players are right now counting their blessings after reports say they are to split a bonus of £1million among themselves for defeating Ajax 2-0 to win the Europa League on Wednesday night.

Pogba opened the scoring in the 18th minute, after his effort was deflected past the goalkeeper.

Although the Dutch club dominated most of the game, it was United who scored the next goal. Chris Smalling got a touch on Juan Mata’s corner, before Mkhitaryan flicked it past the keeper.

Success in Europe’s second tier competition guarantees a spot in the 2017/2018 Champions League and it means most of the players would also see their basic pay rise.

Accordiing to The Times, all United’s players earning more than £20,000-a-week suffered a 25% pay cut when they failed to qualify for this season’s Champions League, but that 25% will be reinstated.

It was gathered that 22 United first-team players will receive the pay increase, which would amount to £28million.

However, this pay rise does not apply to summer signings Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Eric Bailly or Zlatan Ibrahimovic (should he stay), as they were not part of the squad that failed to qualify for the 2016/2017 season.
