But the midfielder underwent successful surgery in January 2013 and, after a long recovery, returned to action as a second-half substitute against Aston Villa in mid-December before going on to feature in a further nine games under David Moyes in all competitions.
Fletcher also earned a recall to the Scotland squad for the upcoming friendly against Poland on March 5 having not played for his country since 2012.
United are pleased with Fletcher's recovery but have been eager not to rush him back, with Moyes of the belief that the Scot can continue to contribute at the highest level in the immediate future.
Fletcher currently earns around £60,000-a-week and the proposed new contract, which would begin in 2015, would see the midfielder pick up a similar figure.
