Six Manchester United players are set to be out of contract in the summer of 2024.
Victor Lindelof, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Hannibal Mejbri are among these six players whose deals at Old Trafford will run out next year.
But the club are planning to trigger the one-year extensions in the contracts of Lindelof and Wan-Bissaka, per the Manchester Evening News. Mejbri’s deal is also likely to be extended.
A change in the Red Devils’ plans is only possible if Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS Group take control of the club’s football operations by the end of the year.
With Sheikh Jassim pulling out of the takeover race, INEOS are set to secure a 25 percent stake in the club.
Lindelof is not Erik ten Hag’s first-choice centre-back, but he has played an important role for United this season.
The 29-year-old has featured in seven Premier League matches this campaign due to injuries to other players. And he has done a commendable job for Man Utd in these appearances.
Wan-Bissaka had featured in all top-flight matches before a hamstring injury in September ruled him out of the squad.
The right-back also made 34 appearances across all competitions last term.
Mejbri has made significant progress in the last few years. After impressing during his loan stint at Birmingham City, the midfielder has made four senior appearances for United this season, with a goal to his name.
