Manchester United are ready to hand Tom Cleverley a contract upgrade - despite him penning a deal as recently as 13 months ago.

That was a four-year contract worth around £35,000 a week, a reward for Cleverley's exciting progress.

But his next deal won't be far off doubling that amount and will put the midfielder in a similar pay category to his fellow young England internationals at United, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones, says the Daily Star Sunday.
