Tyler Blackett’s bank manager will be a very happy man today after Manchester United handed the young defender a massive pay-rise.
Blackett, 20, signed a new contract worth £20,000, according to CaughtOffside, taking his wages up tenfold from his previous £2,000 pay.
A delighted United’s club website: “I’m thrilled to have signed my new contract. I have supported United all my life and have been here since I was eight years old.
“To come through the Academy and make my debut this season was a dream come true. I want to keep improving within the first-team squad with the help of the manager, coaches and the players around me.”
Blackett has made 10 senior appearances for United to date.
