Eddie has a couple of years left on a 35K a week contract at Ashburton Grove, that's over 3.5M quid, or more than I will earn in my lifetime despite me earning pretty decent money (imo). He has a sponsorship deal with Adidas and, I would imagine, will fairly easily get a >10K a week contract with a championship club if Arsenal decide to cash in irrespective how his career develops between now and 2022.
He is already guaranteed a good living, like many modern day prospects who find themselves with a EPL contact at a very young age he's already guaranteed a decent living irrespective of how his career goes. I wonder how many wonder kids there are playing non league football these days after their career disappeared down the loo after a promising start in the youth set up at a EPL club?
