The Red Devils want Mainoo to receive a "salary increase" as they line him up as "one of the faces" of the new project under Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his Ineos team, according to transfer reporter Fabrizio Romano

Romano tweeted: "Understand Manchester United are now pushing in talks to extend Kobbie Mainoo’s contract by this summer after initial discussions in February.

"INEOS want Kobbie to be one of the faces of the new project. New deal would see salary increase for Mainoo + several add-ons."

The winger reportedly earns £20,000 per week, with that number set to triple once he signs a new deal at Old Trafford.

Mainoo has made 27 appearances for United this season in all competitions and has scored three goals and made two assists.

And he even earned his first England call-up this season during the recent international break, shining against Brazil and Belgium.

Ineos is ready to continue the club's long-standing ethos of promoting youth talent.

This now looks set to continue with Mainoo, who has been with the club since the age of nine.

Mainoo is just one of the talented youngsters coming through the ranks at United.

Others include Alejandro Garnacho, who is now a first-team regular, as well as young defender Willy Kambwala, who started against Bournemouth on Saturday.
