Ex-Manchester United player agrees with decision made by Kobbie Mainoo’s camp

Former Manchester United player Paul Parker agrees with the contract decision taken by Kobbie Mainoo’s advisory camp.

Kobbie Mainoo has had a spectacular rise to the Manchester United first team in recent months, with the 18-year-old establishing himself as one of Erik ten Hag‘s first-choice midfielders.

He has been forming a quality partnership with Casemiro in midfield since the Brazilian returned from injury and has started to add a couple of goals to his game, as well.

Recently, there have been talks surrounding Mainoo’s future, with his current contract set to expire in 2027 – but many believe that due to his rise into the first team, he deserves a new, more lucrative deal.

However, reports have stated that his camp are “calm” about the situation and have no intention of entering serious negotiations for a new deal until the summer – something that former United defender Paul Parker agrees with.

“I´ve also read that they are talking about extending his contract, which I really don’t think they should focus on right now,” Parker told MyBettingSites. “He is playing so well, and he should focus on performing, not on talking contracts.

“I really don’t hope it’s his agent making the newspaper write this just to fill his pockets. He should think more about how he can perform right now, and then they can talk about extending his contract in the summer.

“Also, you certainly don’t want to rush and give him a new contract. You wouldn’t want a new Rashford situation, but on the other hand, I also think he has to be rewarded for his performances.

“But I think they should make room for making a new contract after that as well, which would mean building up his contract piece by piece and not putting pressure on him by giving him an enormous contract.”
