MANCHESTER UNITED wonder boy Alejandro Garnacho is in line for a TENFOLD pay hike.
United plan to tear up his terms and rocket his salary to £50,000 a week, with incremental rises.
They also want to add another three years to a deal for the 18-year-old winger that already runs until 2024.
And manager Erik ten Hag is determined to end any hopes they have of tempting him back to the land of his birth with the hugely improved contract.
Garnacho currently earns about £5,000 including bonuses — yet that is set to soar after the most sensational start to life as a first-team player.
Old Trafford chiefs have been talking to the player’s representatives since late summer as they were keen to box off his future even before his headline-grabbing performances.
The club have always been quick to reward their young stars and Garnacho’s elevated first-team status means they are even more adamant to send the message that he is going nowhere.
The teenager’s stunning introduction has just earned him the supporters’ Player of the Month award with more than two-thirds of the vote.
Garnacho came through the ranks at Atletico Madrid before United snapped him up for just £420,000 in June 2021.
