He's earned a massive pay rise.

Manchester United’s Kabbie Mainoo has earned a massive pay rise without signing a new contract.

On Thursday Mainoo continued his rise to stardom by scoring a sensational 97th minute winner to propel United to a dramatic 4-3 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The breathless contest saw Marcus Rashford open the scoring and Rasmus Hojlund double United’s lead, only for Pablo Sarabia to pull one back from the spot.

Scott McTominay went on to restore United's two-goal advantage before Max Kilman and Pedro Neto struck late for Wolves, who believed they had secured a point at Molineux.

But at the death teenage sensation, Mainoo skipped past two defenders and curled in a magnificent winner, to see United move up to seventh in the Premier League.

After the game, Ten Hag was full of praise for the 18-year-old academy graduate.

The Dutchman said: "He is making incredible progress. He has great abilities. He is the modern midfield player. He can attack and he can defend. He has the intelligence and the physicality, and he is also composed."

Moreover, without even signing a new contract, Mainoo has reportedly been awarded a massive pay rise at Old Trafford.

Mainoo has long been touted as a future star at Old Trafford and United were quick to nail him down to a new deal in February until 2027, with the option of an extra year.

However, as per the Sun, that contract includes several incremental pay hikes, one of which sees his salary rocket to £20,000 a week once he hits ten first-team appearances.

Having now made 13 appearances in all competitions this season, including featuring eight times in the Premier League, Mainoo reportedly received the “double-your-money” pay rise in the past month.

The youngster reportedly also sees his wages boosted by substantial bonuses every time he is included in a matchday squad, makes an appearance or wins.

Furthermore, Mainoo will allegedly see his wage increase even further once he is a first-team regular, though the publication did not determine precisely how to quantify that metric.
