Luke Shaw has agreed terms on a new long-term contract at Manchester United.
Shaw will sign a four-year deal with the Red Devils after positive talks over an extension, which will take his time with the club past a decade.
The England international has impressed during Erik ten Hag’s debut season at Old Trafford, in which he has made 35 appearances in all competitions and provided six assists. Shaw has also excelled in an unfamiliar centre-back role under the Dutchman and the club were keen to agree a new deal.
The Athletic are reporting that terms have now been reached in the first breakthrough on new contracts for the first-team squad. United also remain in negotiations with David de Gea, Marcus Rashford and Diogo Dalot over new deals.
De Gea is set to become a free agent this summer and has rejected United’s first proposal of a new deal, though an agreement is expected to be reached. There is more time to reach terms with Rashford and Dalot, whose current contracts expire in 2024.
Rashford this week took to social media to refute claims from the Daily Star that he is demanding a deal that would make him the Premier League’s best-paid player.
“Just before this one starts to do the rounds! It’s complete nonsense,” Rashford wrote on Twitter.
“The club and make self [sic] have been respectful to one another, and that’s how it will remain. My focus is purely on finishing as well as possible in the league and winning trophies.”
