If they can agree a new deal soon then it will be a big boost to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he looks to build his squad around the younger players.

The 21-year-old has established himself as an important player at Old Trafford since bursting onto the scene in a Europa League tie against FC Midtjylland in February 2016.

It is understood that Barcelona were among the clubs eyeing a move for the England international, who has scored 45 goals in 170 appearances for his boyhood club.

Ander Herrera left on a free transfer this summer at the end of his contract, while captain Antonio Valencia was among those released at the end of their deals.
