Man Utd defender Luke Shaw agrees fresh four-year contract

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has agreed to put pen-to-paper on a fresh four-year contract, according to The Athletic.

The left-back has been a key player under manager Erik ten Hag this campaign and the club have now rewarded him for his performances.

Shaw’s previous contract was due to expire in the summer of 2024. The England star has now finalised a new four-year deal with the Red Devils.

The 27-year-old signed for United from Southampton for £30 million back in 2014. The extension will see him spend over a decade at the club.

Shaw deserves his new deal after excellent season

The England international had a slow start to the campaign due to a foot injury but since October, he has been a regular starter over Tyrell Malacia.

Shaw has been impressive with his defensive involvements but he has also been influential in the final third, making seven goal contributions so far.

At 27, he is still in the prime of his career and it was a no-brainer to prolong his stay.

Meanwhile, Diogo Dalot, Marcus Rashford and Fred have their contracts expiring in 15 months and the club will be aiming to agree fresh terms with the trio.

The main priority could be given to David de Gea’s future as his deal expires in the summer. The club have decided against triggering a 12-month option.

Talks are ongoing over a new contract with a pay-cut. Hopefully, an agreement is reached soon.
