Manchester United set to quadruple James Wilson's wages

Manchester United are ready to secure the long-term future of one of their brightest young stars by rewarding his progress and quadrupling his wages, according to the Daily Star.

James Wilson has been one of the brightest talents to come out of the Old Trafford academy in recent seasons and has been more and more involved with Louis van Gaal’s first team this season and is beginning to look at home.

The report claims that the 19-year-old is currently earning in the region of £5000-a-week and that will be bumped up to as much as £20,000 per week in the new four-year deal Manchester United are ready to hand him.

It was Ryan Giggs who gave Wilson his first team debut when the Red Devils’ legend was given the task of taking over the team for the final few games following the sacking of David Moyes after a miserable season in charge saw the club drop out of the European places.

Van Gaal appears to share Giggs’ enthusiasm for the youngster’s promise and has handed him 11 appearances so far this season in the Premier League. There was an earlier vote of confidence for Wilson in the summer with the sale of Danny Welbeck to rivals Arsenal.

After that decision was questioned, Van Gaal claimed that he saw greater potential in the younger of the two strikers, leading the Red Devils to accept the offer that came in for the Gunners, which was reportedly in the region of £16million.

Sorting Wiison’s long-term future is important because there is little chance of him being first-choice in the starting XI any time soon. Radamel Falcao, Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney are all ahead of him in the pecking order and are likely to be there for the next couple of years at least.
