Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has given the green light to trigger a one-year contract extension clause on four first team players.
Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, Fred and Diogo Dalot, all initially out of contract in 2023 and able to speak to foreign clubs about a free transfer from January 1, have now seen their deals extended until 2024 - giving United more time to renegotiate long-term contracts or seek transfer fees for any players they'd like to offload next year.
One player in the same boat whose future remains unresolved however, is first-choice goalkeeper David de Gea.
When does David de Gea's Man Utd contract expire?
De Gea's contract expires on June 30, 2023.
United have an option to extend the Spaniard's stay by a further year like the aforementioned players, but the issue United face is De Gea is currently among the club's top earners - he agreed a deal in the region of £375,000-a-week when it was signed in 2019. Any extension trigger would be on the same terms as the existing deal.
De Gea's current take home earnings are impacted with a clause triggered following United's failure to qualify for the Champions League last season, but remain among the highest in the squad.
