Marcus Rashford is set to receive a humongous pay-rise at the start of the next season, as a reward for his commitment to Manchester United.
The Red Devils have some of the brightest youngsters on display in the Premier League, with the likes of Anthony Martial, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, and Axel Tuanzebe all at the start of their careers.
But one Marcus Rashford has been the icing on the cake for Jose Mourinho, as the Englishman as taken over the mantle of scoring goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the Swede picked up a long-term injury a couple of months ago.
The youngster stands as the first-choice striker for Mourinho at the moment, and as per latest reports, the 19-year-old is set to be rewarded due to a unique clause in his contract, which will see him receive a £10,000-a-week pay rise this summer.
According to reports from The Sun, Rashford is entitled to a pay rise every season he stays at the club, as per the contract he signed at the start of the recently concluded season.
A United source gave further details about the clause, by stating: “He is set to get the boost after a solid season, the young lad has made some real progress. He’s found goals hard to come by but has been told clearly he will continue to rise up the wage ladder here.
“He has the increased wages throughout his deal here. There was a worry he’d get too much, too soon. The lad is not on much as people think at present. He has come along and he’s going to be rewarded for that.”
The England international, who has already made an impact on the national squad, had a tough start to the season, but eventually developed into one of the most productive players at the Theatre of Dreams this season.
Is is understood that the pay rise that is mentioned in his contract serves the purpose of enticing more young blood to join the Old Trafford outfit in the future.
