Manchester United have reportedly take a bold step to reward Jesse Lingard with a new pay hike following his impressive performances both for the club and England over the past year.
This is according to The Sun which claimed the club’s hierarchy are believed to value the winger very highly and are said to be valuing him as one who can rise into a global star for them in the future. As a result, the Red Devils are said to double his current salary of £75,000-a-week.
Nevertheless, the discussions are unlikely to occur until the conclusion of the World Cup considering England have surpassed their expectations to reach the semi-finals. Lingard has contributed a goal and an assist in the Three Lions’ progress to the last-four of the tournament and hopefully, he can end the campaign on a high by helping his country end their 52-year wait for the global crown.

Meanwhile, the Old Trafford club have been making good move this summer with the signings of midfielder Fred and right-back and Diogo Dalot from Shakhtar Donetsk and Porto respectively.
Man United are yet to make any signing for the right-wing and the left-back positions and there have been reports that Willian from Chelsea has been earmarked as a possible candidate to bolster the right side of the attack whilst Juventus’ Alex Sandro has been long on United’s radar as they seek to replace the ageing Ashley Young in the backline.
