Man Utd star Casemiro will take wage drop back to his Real Madrid salary if he fails to hit Red Devils target | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED star Casemiro will reportedly take a wage cut back to what he was on at Real Madrid if he fails to help the team reach its objectives.

The Brazil star, 30, joined the Red Devils for £70million last month, ending a trophy-laden spell at Real.

Casemiro was keen for a new challenge and was said to be being paid £350,000-a-week.

However, that doesn't appear to be the case.

According to The Athletic, Casemiro signed for United with a "slight raise" in wages from what he was on at the Bernabeu despite reports United doubled his money.

And his wage packet could even DROP back to what he was earning at Real if United don't reach their objectives.

Casemiro will see his wages decrease IF United fail to qualify for the Champions League this season.

It won't only be the players who take a hit as the club would also see their Adidas sponsorship money shrink.

The Red Devils have a ten-year agreement with mega sports brand Adidas worth £750m, which includes a number of bonuses or penalties based on performance.

And with United finishing sixth last term, should they fail to qualify for the Champions League for the second season in a row – they will see a 30 per cent reduction in sponsorship revenue.
