Four Manchester United players have signed contract extensions, manager Erik ten Hag has confirmed.

Diogo Dalot, Fred, Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw were all in the final year of their respective contracts but had the option to extend their deals at Old Trafford by 12 months.

There were questions over Fred’s immediate future, but the quartet are now all under contract until at least the summer of 2024.

“Yes, I can confirm it,” Ten Hag told the United’s official website in an excerpt from an interview that is set to be published ahead of United’s Premier League clash with Nottingham Forest on 27 December.

“We are happy because the squad is going in the right direction and those players (have) a massive contribution in that direction. We want to develop, we want to support those players and we want them to keep in our process.

“So, that’s why we came to those decisions, I’m sure they are the right decisions. We want to construct a team for the future, so for longer years, and those players have to be part of it.”

De Gea’s future

United’s Spanish shot-stopper David de Gea, who joined the club in 2011, is in the last year of his contract and has a similar option for an extension.

Unlike his team-mates mentioned above, De Gea has yet to come to an agreement with the Premier League outfit.
