Manchester United have seven players approaching final year of contracts this summer


Manchester United have seven players approaching the final year of their contracts this summer.

United are considering a managerial change and outgoings from the dressing room are set to surpass double figures, with a few departures already confirmed.

Defenders Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Willy Kambwala have contracts that expire in June 2025 and only Maguire has the option of another year in his deal.

The one-year extensions in Lindelof and Wan-Bissaka’s contracts were triggered in December and United are expected to listen to offers for both players this summer

Young central defender Kambwala has broken into the first-team squad this season, making eight Premier League appearances, and is thought to be in talks over a new deal.

Christian Eriksen and Scott McTominay have contracts that expire in June 2025. Eriksen is attracting interest ahead of a likely departure from United this summer, while the club have the option of extending academy graduate McTominay’s deal by another season.

West Ham were interested in signing McTominay last summer, but the 27-year-old remained in Manchester and enjoyed the best goalscoring season of his career.

McTominay scored 10 goals in all competitions and scored a brace in the 2-1 win against Brentford in October and another in the 2-1 victory against Chelsea in December.

Eriksen has made just 12 starts in the Premier League this season and held talks with Erik ten Hag during the season about being unhappy with his reduced role.

United also have the option of triggering the one-year extension in Amad’s contract. The youngster had become frustrated at his lack of opportunities, but he ended the season with a flourish despite being an unused substitute in the FA Cup final triumph against Manchester City.

In January, Ten Hag informed Amad he would be kept around the squad for the remainder of the season, but it took until May for the winger to be given a meaningful start.

United believed they were signing a future star when signing Amad for £19million rising to £37m from this season’s Europa League winners Atalanta in 2020.
