Kobbie Mainoo’s special contract clause set to double current Man United wages



| Last Updated:


Kobbie Mainoo is set for a doubling of his current deal due to a special clause in his Manchester United contract.

Erik ten Hag‘s season so far has been one to forget, but a bright spark in the campaign has been the introduction of Kobbie Mainoo to the Manchester United squad.

Mainoo made his first-team debut last season and impressed many during the club’s pre-season fixtures in the summer, but was ruled out through injury for almost four months in July.

He returned to training last month and has since been handed his first Premier League starts as well as a maiden Champions League appearance against Galatasaray, and has been a welcome alternative in midfield.

Mainoo was the latest recipient of the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year award, which is awarded to the brightest talent in the United academy each season, and due to his new embedding within the senior squad, he is set to have his wage doubled.

As detailed by the Daily Star, Mainoo has a special clause in his contract that states his salary will be doubled once he becomes a regular member of Ten Hag’s senior squad.

After consecutive Premier League starts and a regular member of first-team training, Mainoo will now have his £10,000-a-week contract bumped up to £20,000, potentially within the next few weeks.

This will not require Mainoo to sign any new deal beyond the one he signed in February this year, and his current contract does not expire until June 2027, although should his trajectory continue, he will no doubt be offered a new, much-improved contract within the next three seasons.
