It's all about money in Thursday's back pages, whether it's Jose Mourinho seeing more of it or Liverpool fans saving more of it. 

On Wednesday, Liverpool's owners announced that they'd scrap a proposed ticket restructure and will keep the current prices as they are after a massive protest on the weekend at Anfield that saw fans walk out in the 77th minute. 

The Mirror hails the Liverpool fans' efforts as "victory" while also relaying word on Jose Mourinho's rumoured Manchester United deal that will bring him £15 million annually. 

The Daily Express reports that the proposed deal will make Mourinho the best-paid manager on the planet. 

Meanwhile, the Sun relays a rumour that Mourinho to United is hardly a done deal and that the United squad is split over whether Mourinho or Ryan Giggs should be the next manager. 

The Star claims that Mourinho will have £300 million to spend and that Barcelona superstar Neymar is his top target. 

Metro leads with "We're Sorry" in reference to Liverpool's backing down on their ticket hike.
