Manchester United players could share a £4m bonus pot if they beat Villarreal in the Europa League final this week.

The trophy would also be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first as United boss, and according to reports, the Red Devils could bank a large sum if they get the better of Unai Emery's side in Gdansk.

According to the Daily Mail, who quote the Sun, Solskjaer's men will earn an average of £75,000 as a bonus, and some of their bigger stars, like Paul Pogba, will receive closer to a six-figure sum.

The Old Trafford outfit are also expected to receive a £90m windfall from their European run once TV money comes in - funds that will no doubt help them greatly in the transfer market.

Solskajer has revealed that he wants to add a striker to his side, with reports claiming that United are willing to make an offer for wantaway Tottenham striker, Harry Kane. Manchester City are reportedly leading the race to sign the 27-year-old, but according to The Times, the Red Devils are willing to splash the cash and steal a march on their rivals.

The report adds that United are willing to foot the bill for any loyalty bonuses Kane would have been entitled to had he seen out his contract with Tottenham. Speaking earlier this week, Solskjaer said: "I hope we are going to strengthen with two or three players. We definitely need to challenge higher up in the table and we're still too far behind to think it will just come by itself. We're not where we aim to be, we've got ambitions to move one place further up."

The club are also reportedly keen to reward star midfielder Bruno Fernandes with a new deal worth £200,000-per-week.
