According to reports, Manchester United are set to reverse a contract decision that led to Cristiano Ronaldo‘s unhappiness at the club last year. Following a disappointing 2021/22 season, in which United finished sixth in the Premier League and missed out on the Champions League, the entire playing staff had their wages reduced by 20%. Ronaldo was reportedly unhappy with this decision, feeling that his performances warranted a higher salary.

Manchester United are poised to reverse a contract decision the club made a year ago, which was one of the reasons for Cristiano Ronaldo’s unhappiness at Old Trafford.

While Ronaldo ultimately left after a falling out with former manager Erik ten Hag, it was reported that he was already unhappy with the club before Ten Hag arrived. However, with Ten Hag leading the team to a likely top-four finish this season, United are reportedly ready to give their players a net pay rise of 20% if they secure a return to the Champions League.

The report suggests that players who saw their wages cut last summer will go back to their original wage, while those who have joined the club since then will receive a bonus for the club’s return to Europe’s top competition. This move is seen as a way to keep the squad together and motivated, as United look to build on their improved performances under Ten Hag.

Ten Hag leading Man Utd to top four

Manchester United look set to secure a top-four finish under manager Erik ten Hag. With a six-point lead over both Tottenham and Aston Villa, and a game in hand over Liverpool, United are in a strong position to qualify for the Champions League. Despite dropping points against Tottenham after giving away a two-goal lead, United have enjoyed a resurgent season under Ten Hag, and their players are set to benefit from a net pay rise of 20% if they secure a place in Europe’s top competition.
