Kobbie Mainoo has made an unbelievable start to his young United career with performances well and beyond his age and he just may get rewarded for it.

According to Manchester Evening News, talks for a contract improvement for the young maverick have begun.

He recently signed a long term contract with the club, February 23 to be precise, and he may receive new terms and a pay rise in these new negotiations.

His rise has been a meteoric one, and his potential is truly mind-blowing.

United hierarchy have acted fast to ensure the 18-year-old remains the backbone of our midfield for years to come, and that is good, good news for the United faithful.

The even better news is that according to the report, there is no sense of panic or immediate urgency between both parties.

It is reported that both parties are willing to wait until the end of the season to ensure that the terms they agree on will be favourable and everyone goes home happy.

Mainoo has become one of the first names on the team sheet for Erik ten Hag, and he had started every game for United in 2024 before he was rested against Nottingham Forest in the F.A Cup last week.

He was thrust back into the starting 11 in the derby defeat over the weekend.

His displays on the pitch have been unbelievable for such a young man, a true testament to an old head on young shoulders.

The poise and composure Mainoo exhibits on the football pitch sometimes will have you asking for his birth certificate just to confirm he really was born in 2005.

Mainoo has benefited from playing next to two brilliant footballing brains in Bruno Fernandes and Casemiro.

According to Manchester Evening News, Mainoo loves playing with Casemiro, as the former’s defensive discipline and effectiveness allows Mainoo to play further up the pitch and control the game better.

All in all, Mainoo deserves that new contract and then some.
