The Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been a fairly disgruntled bunch with their team’s results on the pitch this season, and the patience towards Louis van Gaal is wearing thin.
One thing the Dutch manager has been relatively successful with is blending youngsters into the first-team and giving them a platform to play regular football.
Our landlord has spotted an article on Football Insider (via TeamTalk) that says the ex-Holland national team manager is about to offer a new contract to Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, who has performed admirably in recent weeks.
The 19-year-old currently earns around £2k per-week but once he has agreed a new deal he could see his weekly wage increase by ten-fold to a whopping £12k per-week.
Two United fans are sat enjoying a pint of lager and pack of peanuts and they think the youngster has a bright future, but they don’t quite understand what he has done yet to earn himself such a bumper pay increase and thinks the club should have waited!
Manchester United fans… What do you think to the youngster? Does he deserve the contract? Let us know below!
