Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking at the news coming into the pub from the Daily Mirror (via the Irish Independent) – with the publication claiming that United are set to give defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson a new deal, which will see him earn 500% more than he was.
Our resident Red Devils fans feel the young full-back has the potential to become a first-team regular at Old Trafford for years to come, with them all agreeing that tying him down to a new deal is an essential bit of business.
The report claims that the 18-year-old is on £2ooo-a-week, with the new deal set to be in the region of £10,000-a-week, something that our landlord feels is a good move!
The player has been utilised more than he probably expected this season, as a result of the sheer amount of injuries that the United first-team has had this season.
Mike, a hardcore Man United fan over by the pool table here in the Tavern had his say on the matter: “Borthwick-Jackson is a hell of a player, LVG should do all he can to make the player feel comfortable at the club!”
