Man Utd willing to convey their defender ‘40% pay rise’ on current contract

Lisandro Martinez‘s debut season at Manchester United was so successful that the Red Devils are planning to give the Argentine a substantial pay raise to secure his future.

The defender’s first two matches in English football drew widespread criticism from fans and commentators, with many believing he was too diminutive for the Premier League.

He has swiftly addressed this criticism and established himself as one of the premier Premier League defenders.

United spent just short of £60 million to acquire Martinez’s signature from Ajax, fending off competition from Arsenal in the process. The World Cup champion currently earns £120,000 per week at Old Trafford.

However, those at the top of United’s hierarchy are eager to reward Martinez with an enhanced compensation package that would increase his income by £50,000.

Although a pay raise is imminent, there are no plans to have Martinez sign a new contract given that his current agreement has four years remaining.

It is believed that United manager Erik ten Hag has approved of the idea as a means to recognize Martinez’s importance to the team.

The Red Devils have been without their star defender for the past few weeks, as Martinez was declared out for the remainder of the season after breaking a metatarsal against Real Betis in the Europa League last month.

Martinez has already won the affections of United fans, and this pay raise is a reflection of the Argentine’s fantastic season, despite the injury.

Martinez took to Instagram to update fans following the news of his season-ending injury, writing:

“Not the way I envisioned a very special season ending, but sometimes we face obstacles along the way that we must overcome to make us stronger, and we learn from them.”I am confident that I will return shortly for more.

In the interim, I will continue to assist my teammates in achieving our goals.

“The messages and support I’ve received are incredible; they give me fortitude and strength. Sincere appreciation from the depths of my heart.”

United will attempt to mount a title challenge next season, but his teammate’s sole emphasis will be on securing Champions League qualification this season.

Martinez will look to advance and improve even further the following season.
