Manchester United Star Set to Sign New 4-Year Contract Worth £60k-a-Week

Published on: 31 October 2016

Manchester United are set to reward young attacker Jesse Lingard with a new four-year contract following his breakthrough into the club's first team, reports theMail Online.

Lingard has been excellent in spells at Old Trafford following a series of loan deals elsewhere to aid his development, and he is now set to put pen to paper on a deal that will see him double his weekly wage to £60,000-a-week.

Lingard rose to prominence under former manager Louis van Gaal, bagging the winning goal in last season's FA Cup final.

He has continued his spell in the first team since Jose Mourinho succeeded the Dutchman, with the current boss clearly impressed by his attacking talents and work rate.

The report claims that Lingard is also in line to sign a new contract with his sponsor Adidas - who also supply United's kits - and it could see Lingard pocket a seven-figure sum. A potential deal will be beneficial for the German sportswear firm's marketing plans.

This potential new deal also comes off the back of Lingard earning himself a place in England's international set up, as he made his debut for the senior side against Malta last month.

Lingard is also set to feature in Gareth Southgate's latest squad to face both Scotland and Spain.

The 23-year-old has 18 months left to run on his current contract, and United are keen to tie down one of their brightest young talents before the deal reaches its final year.
