The 24-year-old has been the source of much criticism as Manchester United have struggled in the wake of Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement but is set to be offered a new deal worth £15 million.

Both England manager Roy Hodgson and United manager David Moyes have spoken out against what they see as the scapegoating of the central midfield player.

The new deal will come as a welcome fillip to the player who has had to endure the ignominy of having an online petition set up calling for him to be axed from Roy Hodgson’s World Cup squad.

The deal is said to be worth £60,000 per-week, according to the Daily Mail, and while Cleverley is seen as an important player for the future, Moyes will look to reinforce his midfield come the summer.

Dortmund pair Ilkay Gundogan and Marco Reus are thought to be his top targets but a return for Paul Pogba looks out of the question, the report adds.
