Cameron Borthwick-Jackson is set to sign a new and improved contract with Manchester United. 

The Mirror claim that the exciting defender, who has established himself as a first-team player recently, is set to increase his wages by five times at Old Trafford. 

Currently earning around £2000-a-week, the report claims that Borthwick-Jackson will sign a £10,000-a-week deal this week.

Manchester-born, Borthwick-Jackson has impressed under the guidance of Louis van Gaal - he produced a fine performance against Liverpool after coming on as a substitute and didn't look out of place against Southampton on Saturday - so it's not entirely surprising that the club are looking to tie him down for the long-term. 

At just 18-years-old, the teenager certainly appears to have a bright future ahead of him and may well act as Luke Shaw's main competitor for the left-back role over the coming years. 

Giving youth a chance 

Red Devils boss Van Gaal has had his critics since arriving in Manchester - his long-term future at the club remains uncertain - but he deserves credit for handing youth team players the opportunity to shine on the grandest stage.

As well as Borthwick-Jackson, the likes of Andreas Pereira, Paddy McNair, Guillermo Varela and co. have all had opportunities to prove their credentials in the Premier League. 

Injuries, of course, have forced Van Gaal's hand at times, but United fans should take comfort in knowing that they have a number of talented, young players in their ranks.
