The England international was in the headlines last week after an online petition was set up to prevent the player from being selected as part of England manager Roy Hodgson’s 23-man World Cup squad travelling to Brazil this summer.

However, despite the public’s apparent dislike of the 24-year-old, the Red Devils’ new boss David Moyes is said to be a big fan of the player’s and as such, the Scot is preparing to offer Cleverley a contract extension on his current deal which now only runs until June 30 2015, with the midfielder also set to see his weekly salary rise to £60,000.

The Premier League giants are still understood to be preparing a major overhaul of their first-team squad at the Theatre of Dreams at the end of the campaign though, with Moyes believed to be targeting big-money moves for the Borussia Dortmund duo of Ilkay Gundogan and Marco Reus.
