Brown's Contract Is Finally Sorted

Brown's Contract Is Finally Sorted

Wes Brown, one of United's most consistent performers this season, has finally reached an agreement with the club about a new contract.

According to various newspaper reports, Sir Alex will announce it today at his usual pre-match press conference. Brown will sign a four-year contract, earning a weekly wage of just under Ł50,000.

His current contract expires at the end of the season and could have left on a free so it's a relief that we are set to keep one of the very few local lads in the squad. Though I frequently urged Brown to sign and questioned his decision to delay the agreement, I say now that I can understand him.

Several sources suggested that though Brown's motives behind holding out for bigger wages are mainly coming from his agent, he has another, more... noble intentions. It's been said that he's trying to wake up the club for the importance of respecting our home-grown, local talent who are paid significantly less than several of our foreign stars.

I'm not sure it's true but I'd certainly agree with such a 'crusade'. Brown stayed here all these years when he had little chance of holding down a regular place in the first team but he was happy with being a squad player as he was at United, his boyhood club. Surely we've got to reward these kind of players even though they might not be as important as the Ronaldos.
