Twitter explodes as news breaks of potential new contract for United starlet.
Tyler Blackett must be counting himself as one of the luckiest men in football right now. Having taken advantage of Manchester United’s injury crisis to become a regular starter this season, news has now broken that he could be in line for a rise from £2,000-per-week to £50,000-per-week.
The 20-year-old has been thrown in the deep end this term, and has performed as well as a kid that isn’t ready for the top flight can perform under the circumstances.
However, that hasn’t stopped the ire from bleeding out over the news of this latest contract, the reaction of which can be seen below.
£50k per week for Tyler Blackett is outrageous. Great potential for the sort of negligence that has meant we can't get rid of Anderson.

Tyler Blackett to be rewarded with £50k/week contract? Words fail me…

£50k a week is the going rate for a top centre half at a club as big as United. But Tyler Blackett? #Really?

How can a player whose achieved nothing, never really had a good game, be rewarded with 50k a week? It's stupid.
