And, according to the Daily Mail, the bonus would be split between the players using a formula based on appearances and minutes played in the competition. Howe would also get a bonus if the club wins the cup. The winning club will bank £100,000 in prize money, while the runner-up gets £50,000.

United’s bonus schemes were often a source of conflict with former owner Mike Ashley, but this season’s incentives were reportedly “amicably” agreed last summer.

The squad became embroiled in a dispute with the hierarchy over the proposed scheme for the 2018/19 season, and the players refused to speak to the media in pre-season. Speaking at the time, then-manager Rafa Benitez said: "When things aren’t going well off the pitch, you can see a reflection on the pitch.”
