Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley are likely to get new five-year deals with Manchester United, which will double their earnings. United bosses have already starting preparing the contract reviews, which would see their pay shoot to 40,000 pounds a week.

Striker Welbeck, who scored one goal in the 3-0 win against Spurs this week, has little less than two years remaining on his existing terms.

Both he and midfielder Cleverley, who only signed a three-year extension last summer, are currently two of the lowest-paid in United''s first-team squad.

Welbeck and Cleverley''s pay hikes will bring them in line with fellow rookie Chris Smalling, who recently agreed terms until 2016.
