The Red Devils have triggered contract extensions for four first-team players.

Manchester United have reportedly activated one-year extensions in the contracts of Marcus Rashford, Diogo Dalot, Fred, and Luke Shaw.

Despite his newly found form this season, Rashford was linked with a move away from Man Utd. Paris Saint-Germain emerged as suitors for the England international, but the Red Devils have managed to tie him down to a new deal.

According to the Athletic, Man Utd have fended off interest from other clubs to sign one-year contracts with Rashford, Dalot, Shaw, and Fred.

Earlier this month, Nasser Al-Khelaifi admitted PSG were looking to make a bid for Rashford. Meanwhile, Dalot emerged among Barcelona’s main targets for the winter.

The new contract decisions show both players are part of Erik ten Hag’s plans for the second part of the season.

David De Gea, however, is yet to renew his deal at Old Trafford. The Spanish keeper earns around £375,000 per week, but Man Utd are keen to lower his salary.

United are also actively searching the market for January reinforcements. PSV Eindhoven’s Cody Gakpo is Ten Hag’s number-one target ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

United will return to action when they meet Burnley in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup this Wednesday.
