| Last Updated:


Manchester United have sanctioned two contract extensions but are refusing to make a decision on Anthony Martial’s future.

Manchester United currently have six players whose contracts are set to expire at the end of June 2024, and must make decisions as to which deals they will extend and who they will allow to leave.

Victor Lindelöf, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Anthony Martial, Hannibal Mejbri, Jonny Evans, and Tom Heaton all have contracts that are set to end in June 2024, however, the club have the option to extend the contracts of the first four players by another year.

The contracts of Tom Heaton and Jonny Evans do not currently have this option, and this of course does not include the loan signings of Sofyan Amrabat and Sergio Reguilón.

The club have, according to ESPN, decided that they will trigger extensions in both Lindelöf and Wan-Bissaka’s deals in order to keep both players at the club – although it has been said by other reports that Lindelöf is considering his future.

On the contrary, United have not yet decided if they are going to do the same for Anthony Martial, who has seen his significance in the squad completely diminished in the last few seasons.

Martial was at one point the main man up front at United, but in the last few seasons, injuries and inconsistent form have seen his importance in the side reduced to almost nothing.

United completed the signing of Rasmus Højlund in the summer with the aim of building the Danish striker as the club’s new No.9, with Martial now acting as back-up for the player.
