Manchester United youngster Cameron Borthwick-Jackson is set to be handed a new pay rise after impressing Louis van Gaal.
The 19-year-old academy graduate played in the youth team at the beginning of this season, but later got involved into Louis van Gaal’s plans after injuries to the first team left backs Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo.
Borthwick-Jackson was quick to grab the opportunity, and made his United debut in the 2-0 win over West Brom in November, and the young Englishman has only been impressive since then.
Following his impressive performances, the Football Insider has now claimed that the youngster has been rewarded with a new contract that will run until 2020, and see his weekly wage jump from £2,000 a week to £12,000.
“We are dealing with that of course but you have to wait for an announcement from the club,” said the United manager.
The 19-year-old, who impressed against Chelsea’s danger man Willian at Stamford Bridge last Sunday, has answered the SOS and will get his reward.
“We have coped with injuries for the whole season and that also delivers young players out of our youth system,” added Louis.
“It’s a good policy and I’m happy with Borthwick-Jackson and Jesse Lingard because of that policy they have had that chance.”
Borthwick-Jackson’s first professional contract is due to expire in the summer and his new four-and-a-half-year deal will replace that.
