Manchester United are ready to hand 23 year old midfielder Scott McTominay an improved deal, despite the fact that he signed a new contract with the club as recently as January.
Under the proposed terms of the new deal, the Lancaster born player will see his current weekly salary double to £60,000 a week, with the promise of future bonuses if his current level is maintained. His stay at Old Trafford will also be extended until 2025, with the option of a further 12 months, as is typical of all Manchester United contracts.
The new deal is recognition of the progress that McTominay has made in solidifying his position in the team under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after turning in a series of impressive performances, most recently in the derby win over Manchester City at the weekend.
A former academy player, McTominay was handed his debut by former manager Jose Mourinho, and has since gone on to play for the club 65 times, scoring five goals.
