Man Utd trigger contract extensions for Rashford, Shaw, Dalot and Fred

Manchester United have triggered one-year options to extend the contracts of Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, Diogo Dalot and Fred to the end of the 2023/24 season.

It is also understood that the same action has not been taken for David de Gea's contract, with the club in positive talks with the Spain goalkeeper about a potential new deal.

Following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and as the January transfer market approaches, Manchester United are looking for forward players but there is a significant chance they will not sign anyone next month.

Rushhoursport has been told PSV Eindhoven forward Cody Gakpo, who was a summer target, is one of a few forward players United have been interested in.

Gakpo impressed at the World Cup as he scored three goals for Netherlands in Qatar before they were knocked out at the quarter-final stage by Argentina on penalties.

United are wary of unrealistic valuations being put on potential targets in January - especially after a World Cup.

PSV director of football Marcel Brands says any deal for the 23-year-old "must be a record transfer" for the Eredivisie club. Therefore holding onto Rashford, in the short-term at least, will be key for United's push for the Premier League top four.
