Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba ‘are at the centre’ of a rift over pay that is damaging morale at Manchester United.

The club’s two highest-paid players have goal and assist bonuses written into their contracts, causing friction in the dressing room.

Sanchez, already earning upwards of £350,000 a week, picks up an additional £75,000 per goal and £25,000 with each assist. Which only actually amounts to an extra £600,000 since he joined in January 2018, proving just how sh*te he has been.

And The Sun say that Pogba is paid £50,000 for every goal and £20,000 per assist on top of his basic salary.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been left ‘battling against jealousy and rifts in his squad’ as a consequence, with numerous players frustrated at earning a ‘fraction’ of their wages with no such ‘incentives’.

They quote a source as saying: “The real problem is the incentive plan.

“It has caused a lot of animosity and is as responsible for the lack of the recent failure of team spirit as anything else.”
