The Daily Mail have Manchester United fans looking rather impressed here in the Football Transfer Tavern after they claimed that the Red Devils were set to reward one of their young stars with a bumper pay rise.
Tyler Blackett has been one of the bright sparks at the back this season and despite a couple of errors that remind us just how young the starlet is, overall we have been very impressed with him.
That seems to be the case for manager Louis van Gaal and the Red Devils board too with Blackett set to increase his weekly wage by an incredible 2400 per cent, going from £2,000 per week to a huge £50,000!
Our punters agree that this isn’t bad going for a 20-year-old who was on loan at Blackpool and Birmingham City only last term.
The young star is considered to be the future of the club by the management and given the likes of Luke Shaw are on huge deals and arguably do very little to deserve them, we certainly think that Blackett is very deserving of this latest turn in events!
Manchester United fans. Does Blackett deserve a new mega deal at the club or is this a sorry case of too much, too soon for such a young player? Let us know your thoughts below.
