Jose Mourinho is prepared to double the 28-year-old’s wages to keep him at Old Trafford until 2021
If the midfielder puts pen to paper, this deal will double his current wages – making him one of the club’s highest paid players.

The Spain international has formed a lethal partnership in the United midfield with Paul Pogba
The Spanish ace will earn a remarkable £200,000-a-week plus bonuses, according to the Daily Star.
Herrera proved pivotal to the success of United last season, establishing himself as a key player within Mourinho’s well-knit side.
Following the departure of Wayne Rooney, Herrera has been made vice-captain for the upcoming campaign – with Michael Carrick set to captain the side.
The midfielder’s contract expires next summer, so Mourinho is keen to seal the deal as quickly as possible.
Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have both voiced their interest of Herrera, who made his international debut for Spain last November.
However, this lucrative deal looks like it is going to keep him at Old Trafford until 2021, which would mark an eight-year stay with club.
