Timothy Fosu-Mensah will reportedly be forced to wait for another two years before his Manchester United salary is boosted yet again.

The Red Devils are poised to announce an improved four-year deal for the talented 18-year-old, according to weekend reports.

United sources, however, have told SiaS that the 18-year-old won't be instantly rocketed up the Old Trafford pay ranks.

Fosu-Mensah is currently on international duty for Holland's Under-21 side and will see his pay increase from £2,000 a week to £20,000.

United are insistent the youngster still needs to keep his feet firmly planted and concentrate on his football.

It's understood the club are putting a mechanism in place which will see a "modest" incremental increase of £10,000 a week over the lifetime of the new deal, with an option after two years to review the situation if he starts to become a permanent fixture in the United side.

Fellow teenager Marcus Rashford already earns considerably more at a basic £35,000 a week although the feeling from the United hierarchy is the England striker has already proved his pedigree on the biggest stage.

Fosu-Mensah made 10 appearances for United last season and the former Ajax graduate has played twice this term, against Northampton in the EFL Cup and in a right-back role against Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League.
