Manchester United set to break £400m record; Reus to ‘decide future in the summer’

Old Trafford 2

A select round-up of morning news relating to Manchester United

Manchester United are on course to have a turnover of more than £400million for the first time this year, reports the Manchester Evening News.

It is claimed that will be the case even if United finish third in this season’s Premier League.

Much is believed to be down to the Financial Fair Play rules, whereby many players are no longer enjoying the huge pay increases of the past.

Chief executive Ed Woodward said that while the top players still earn the top wages, there has been “a fall in the acceleration around player wage growth.”

In other news, following reports earlier this week that Manchester United were considering triggering Marco Reus’s release-clause, the Express claims the German international will wait until the summer to decide his future.

With reports of a new offer from current club Borussia Dortmund forthcoming, Reus will apparently spend some time considering his next option before either extending a contract that will no doubt alleviate the current £29.4million clause, or move on from Jurgen Klopp’s side (should someone pay the current asking-price).
