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.
