Manchester United aim to tie David de Gea and Marcus Rashford down to new deals

Manchester United are planning to offer David de Gea and Marcus Rashford new contracts before the end of the season.

Speaking to investors on Thursday Ed Woodward ruled out making an announcement on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future before the end of the campaign. But negotiations are ongoing with De Gea and Rashford over new long-term deals.

“We are a long way through the ones we had planned to do in this season,” Woodward told investors.

“But obviously we want to finish off the final few as rapidly as we can.”

Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling, Scott McTominay, Phil Jones and Ashley Young have all extended their contracts this season.

They face Chelsea in the FA Cup fifth-round on Monday night.
