Park Ji-sung is set to sign a lucrative new Manchester United contract during the early weeks of the season.
The South Korean's present deal expires next summer, but the 28-year-old has already proved his worth in four successful years at Old Trafford following a £2million move from PSV Eindhoven.
And although United chief executive David Gill has refused to put a timescale on negotiations, it is anticipated a new deal will be signed shortly.
'We are looking to extend Park's contract because Alex is very happy with him,' said Gill.
'When we signed Ji-sung Park it was for footballing reasons. But, without a doubt, it has had an impact on our commercial activity in South Korea.
