Danny Welbeck has been offered a treble-your-money pay rise as Sir Alex Ferguson looks to nail down the key players in his next Old Trafford dynasty reports the Daily Mail.

The 20-year-old England striker, who currently earns wages of around £15,000-a-week, will be offered a five-year extension with an increase to £50,000-a-week in order to secure his future.

Welbeck has been one of Manchester United's shining lights this season, and with five goals already to his name this term, his importance in the Red Devils side is increasing with every game.

The Daily Mail claims that sources close to the player confirm that he wants to stay at Old Trafford, after seemingly moving ahead of the likes of Dimitar Berbatov in the Manchester United pecking order. But the youngster will take time over his decision, and plans to have further discussions next week.


 

With 18months remaining on his existing deal, United are in no rush to push through negotiations, but are aiming to have the deal signed prior to the summer - where Welbeck is expected to travel with England to Euro 2012.

After Chris Smalling penned a new five-year deal in July, and Tom Cleverley followed suit agreeing to a new four-year contract last week, it is widely anticipated that Welbeck will be the next in line to commit his long-term future to the reigning Barclays Premier League champions.
