The club have held "gentle talks" with the 18-year-old about offering him a new and improved deal beyond his current contract which takes him through to the summer of 2014.

Davis told the club's official website: "Max is still a young player and is still learning. He has come into the side this season and done okay. We just need him to add goals on a consistent basis.

"He came on against Bradford in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and scored a great header and had another disallowed, so we know he has goals in him.

"He is still adjusting to the level, like a few of them, and he will master it. We will just be cautious with him to protect him.

"We will push him on and not play him when he is not scoring or is low on confidence. We are careful with our young players and protect their confidence.

"We have had gentle talks with Max and his dad and at that moment in time he didn't want to consider a new contract. I'm sure we will sit down with them again because we wouldn't want his contract to run down too much. He has year left after this season, so we will resume them at the end of the season."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
