Given how highly regarded at Old Trafford, United are ready to offer Maguire a wage of £300,000 a week.
United are keen to tie Maguire to a new five-year deal and have approached the defender as they look to start early talks.
The centre-back has made 114 appearances for United since joining Leicester for £80m in 2019, a move that made him the most expensive defender in the world.

Maguire also has a lot of experience at the international level, having been capped by England on 39 occasions.
Currently due to a calf injury, Maguire will hope to be back fit soon and will be determined to forge an effective long-term partnership with Rafael Varane, the summer arrival at the center of United’s defence.
United are currently fourth in the Premier League and will face Maguire’s former club Leicester when they return to action next Saturday.
