Manchester United are set to raise Harry Maguire’s wages to the top of the club in a new contract.
The 28-year-old joined the club in 2019 for £80million on a six-year contract until 2025. And immediately became a pivotal figure in the team’s defensive line and was handed the captain’s armband from Ole.
According to the Mirror, the British media revealed that the “Red Devils” are preparing to update the new England centre-back’s contract. That is an increase in wages from the original about 190,000 pounds per week almost doubled.

Maguire’s numbers are expected to rise to the same level. As Rafael Varane and Jadon Sancho, who earn £340,000 and £350,000-a-week respectively in return for their excellent performances.
The club’s current highest-paid player is Cristiano Ronaldo. Who earns around £510,000-a-week, followed by David De Gea, who earns £375,000-a-week.
Despite having four years remaining on his current contract. Man Utd are ready to reward Maguire for his rise in standing in the team by offering him a brand new deal, as per the Mirror.
The England star will receive a contract which matches the salaries of new signings Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho, handing him a significant increase from his current wage. An improved deal seems a fair reward for Maguire. After his significance to the side was magnified by his absence at the end of last season.
Maguire was an ever-present at the heart of the defence. But he picked up an ankle injury against Aston Villa, ruling him out for the final few games of the campaign. His absence was sorely felt as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side lost two out of four league matches. So conceding eight goals in the process.
