Ghana target, Timothy Fosu-Mensah is set for a huge payday after the international break when he is due to sign a £5.2million contract.
The 18-year-old has agreed a four-year deal to stay at Old Trafford beyond the end of the season when his current deal expires.
Jose Mourinho has kept the teenager in his first-team plans instead of loaning him out after being impressed with him during pre-season.
Fosu-Mensah has played in the Capital One Cup and the Europa League so far – and Mourinho is expecting to use him as United fight on four fronts.
He will get a pay-rise to £25,000-a-week to commit his future to United after breaking through to the first team under Louis van Gaal.
LVG handed him his debut last February in a victory over Arsenal and getting his contract sorted was on the agenda after making the move to the first-team dressing room at the club’s Carrington HQ.
