Daniel James set for Man Utd pay-hike

Daniel James is in line for a new contract at Manchester United.

The 22-year-old midfielder, having arrived from Swansea City, only signed a five-year deal with the Red Devils last July worth £35,000-a-week, says The Sun.

But it is understood he is set to have a pay-rise to around £50,000-a-week in a huge show of faith by the club.

James was promised uplifts to his contract if he managed to prove himself as a first-team regular at Old Trafford.

He is also entitled to bonuses for goals and assists, along with trophies and Champions League qualification.
