Manchester United renews the contracts of Rashford, Dalo, Shaw and Fred
Manchester United has renewed the contracts of four players until 2024, including striker Marcus Rashford, according to what Dutch coach Eric Ten Hag announced on Saturday.
"Manchester United coach Eric Ten Hag has confirmed that the club has renewed, for a period of one year, the contracts of four players," the club said in a statement on its website.
The contracts of Rashford, fullbacks Luke Shaw, Portuguese Diogo Dalo, and Brazilian midfielder Fred expire in June 2023, that is, at the end of the current season.
“We are happy that the team is moving in the right direction, and these players (have) a great contribution in this direction,” Ten Hag said.
We want to develop, we want to support these players and we want them to stay in our plan.
And he added, "We want to build a team for the future, for longer years, and these players should be part of it."
Rashford, 25, graduated from the United Academy and joined the first team since 2015, while Dalo and Fred joined the Red Devils in 2018 and Shaw in 2014.
The team played its first match Thursday since its separation from Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo last November, in the fourth round of the English League Cup on Wednesday against Burnley (2-0), and Rashford scored a wonderful individual goal after starting from the middle of the field, bypassing several players before penetrating and scoring from within the region.
United ranks fifth in the Premier League and hosts Nottingham Forest on Tuesday in stage 17, with the Premier League resuming after the World Cup stop in Qatar.
