Manchester United is having a terrible start to the season after a 0-2 defeat at home against Brighton & Hove Albion, and the humiliating 4-0 defeat away at Brentford. This, in addition to last year’s awful season where the team failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League and registered their lowest-ever points in a Premier League campaign, has got everyone worried at Old Trafford.

Today, Kieran Maguire from The Times, has reported that if The Red Devils once again fail to qualify for the Champions League this year, Adidas will be able to reduce the amount of money they pay to the 20-time Premier League winners each season by 30%, which is about £22.5 million. This was a term agreed upon when United signed a kit deal with Adidas back in 2014.

For this reason, Erik ten Hag and the club’s board are working very hard these past few days in order to sign some world-class players that can help the team improve and turn this unfortunate situation around once and for all. Today it was reported by several media outlets from England and Spain that Casemiro could be arriving in Manchester in the next few days.

This start of the season puts United in a very bad place sitting at the bottom of the league table, while other clubs from the famous “Big Six” like Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham have all signed great players in order to fight for the Premier League title or secure a place in the Champions League.

An interesting fact

Ever since 2013, the Red Devils have failed to qualify for Europe’s biggest club competition in five out of the last nine seasons. However, they have never gone two consecutive seasons without qualifying. Despite this, Man United needs to start winning as soon as possible to have a chance to compete for a place in the Top 4.
