Tyler Blackett Contract: Man United Youngster Pens New £20k-a-week Deal

Manchester United defender Tyler Blackett has received a humongous pay-rise by putting pen to paper on a new contract at Old Trafford.

The 20-year-old, who has only played 10 senior matches for the Red Devils, was on £2,000 per week, but his new terms will see him take home £20,000 every seven days, according to the Daily Mail.

Blackett’s new contract runs until June 2017, but United have the option to extend it by a further 12 months.

The Dutchman told United’s official website: “I am delighted that Tyler has signed a new contract.

“He is another young player that has risen through the Academy system to break into the first-team squad this season.

“Tyler has great potential and I believe he is at the right club to continue his development and progression to become a great defender.”

Blackett added: “I’m thrilled to have signed my new contract. I have supported United all my life and have been here since I was eight years old.

“To come through the Academy and make my debut this season was a dream come true. I want to keep improving within the first-team squad with the help of the manager, coaches and the players around me.”
