Erik ten Hag has revealed that Manchester United are in discussions to extend the contracts of four different first-team players.
They have lost eleven games so far this term and are unable to turn their form around at the moment despite a promising win against Chelsea on Wednesday.
Before their defeat to Bournemouth, Ten Hag revealed that United were in discussions to extend the contracts of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Hannibal Mejbri and Anthony Martial – all four players have entered the final year of their deals at Old Trafford.
Yet, the club regularly include one-year extension options in their players’ contracts and those four could remain at the club until 2025, or it could give United the opportunity to sell them in the summer rather than the players leaving for free.
“When we have news about that [then we will tell you],” replied Ten Hag when it was brought to his attention that it was around this time last year when United extended similar deals. “It’s absolutely in our mindset, we are discussing things, and when we have news, we will bring it.”
Another player with his future in the air at the club is loanee Sergio Reguilon.
The Tottenham Hotspur defender has mostly impressed since arriving on loan because of the injuries to Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia.
Now, Shaw is back available, but Malacia has been dealt another setback in his recovery and will not return until after the New Year.
Ten Hag remained coy when asked if the Spaniard would remain at Old Trafford after January, since Spurs have the option to recall the defender in the mid-season window.
“Also, for that we have to make a final decision but there is another club Spurs involved in it as well,” he said.
