The 28-year-old United captain arrived at Old Trafford in 2019 as part of a staggering £80m transfer from Leicester City.
Maguire, who is the most expensive defender in history, was appointed captain at United in 2020 after Ashley Young's move to Inter Milan.
The former Leicester City star is on a £190,000-a-week deal at United, with his current contract expiring in 2025.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer values Maguire’s leadership role at United and is hopeful of him striking up an effective partnership with Raphael Varane in defence.
According to The Sun, United are prepared to offer Maguire a ‘new package in the region’ of £300,000 a week.
Maguire’s new and improved £300,000-a-week contract would only put him behind David de Gea and Cristiano Ronaldo as United’s top earners.
The England international’s new contract would keep him at Old Trafford until 2026.
Ronaldo’s sensational return to Old Trafford in the summer fired him to the top of United’s best-paid players, with the Red Devils legend reportedly earning a lucrative £385,000 per week.
De Gea, who signed a new contract in 2019, is behind the five-time Ballon d'Or winner on a £375,000-a-week deal at United.
Maguire was ruled out of England's World Cup qualifiers in the international break due to a calf injury.
Speaking after United’s 1-1 draw with Everton at Old Trafford, Solskjaer admitted he was unsure about the earliest date that Maguire would return from injury.
“Let’s see, it’s still two weeks until the next game, so we’re hoping so but we don’t know,” he told beIN SPORTS.
United are currently fourth in the Premier League table and are two points behind league leaders Chelsea.
The Red Devils’ Premier League campaign resumes on 16th October against Leicester at the King Power.
