Manchester United winger Daniel James has played very well for his club since the transfer to Old Trafford from the English Championship last summer and he’s in line for a significant raise according to media outlet SB Nation.

Daniel James became a Manchester United player at the start of the season when the Red Devils paid £15m to sign him from Swansea City FC of Wales.

He earns around £35,000 on a weekly basis at Manchester United and that could increase to £50,000 per week if the 22-year-old Welsh international signs the new contract offer from his club.

Daniel James is expected to a key part of the Welsh squad for the 2020 European Championships in the summer.

He has played 36 games for Manchester United this season as the former Premier League champions try to return to the Champions League stage after one season. Manchester United missed out on the competition this season but they have two routes to take to qualify for next season’s edition.

Manchester United can qualify for Champions League football next season by winning the Europa League. They have a last 16 tie to navigate against LASK of Austria starting with the first leg on Thursday night before the second leg at Old Trafford next week.

Champions League football is also possible via the Premier League. The top four teams will qualify automatically but fifth position could be open due to the European ban slammed on Manchester City in second place.

Manchester United are in fifth place at the moment and three points off Chelsea in fourth spot.

In a related development, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is eyeing a new deal at the club when it looked like he would leave this summer.

Pogba has been impressed with the club’s signing of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon. Bruno Fernandes has been in sensational form since his arrival. Pogba could see his wages increase from £300,000 weekly to £400,000 weekly with the new deal.
