Borthwick-Jackson has four years remaining on his Old Trafford contract after making a strong impression under Louis van Gaal last season.
The England Under-19 international was one of many United academy graduates given an opportunity by the Dutchman and looked comfortable at the highest level.
He made 14 first-team appearances, 10 of which were in the Premier League, under Van Gaal and had established himself in the team before injury disrupted his progress in the final months of the campaign.

John, 24, spent last year on loan at Reading, where he scored four times in 28 league appearances for the Royals.
Under new ownership by the Chinese investment group Fosun and a new manager in Walter Zenga, Wolves have made an impressive unbeaten start to the Championship season to reach third position behind Huddersfield and Brighton.
Zenga has now completed seven signings in the summer transfer window, as he adds Borthwick-Jackson and John to the likes of Joao Teixeira, Silvio, Helder Costa, Prince Oniangue and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson.
