Manchester United are ready to upgrade Tom Cleverley's contract.

The Mirror says he is currently on around £40,000 a week after signing a contract at the start of last season, but that was before he made any impact in both the Premier League or on the international stage.

Now though, Cleverley can expect to double his money, to reflect his status at the club... even if that will still leave him a long way short of some of the top earners at Old Trafford, such as Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie, who command more than twice that figure.
