Manchester United are reportedly keen to hand new contracts to Jesse Lingard, Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw soon.

Lingard and Pogba both will be out of contract in June next year at Old Trafford. The former was strongly linked with a move away from Old Trafford during the summer transfer window.

The England international remained with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side beyond the deadline. He has scored twice for his club this season, including the winner against West Ham United on Sunday.

According to an Italian journalist, Fabrizio Romano, the Red Devils are in talks with Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba over new deals. While the club is also speaking with the representatives of Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw.

The attacking midfielder Fernandes still has four years left to run on his agreement. But Man United want to hand Portugal international a pay rise due to his form since arriving from Sporting Lisbon.

This contract also has the option of a further year that would take it through to the summer of 2026. But United are prepared to offer him new terms that include a pay rise for the Portuguese midfielder.

Fernandes has also started every match this season, scoring four goals and providing one assist in the first six matches of the season.

The left-back Shaw, meanwhile, will be out of contract in June 2023. The 26-year-old appears to have finally overcome his injury problems to become a key player for club and country. 

The former Southampton defender has played every minute for the club so far this season after starring for England at the Euros in the summer.

United have made a solid start to their 2021/22 Premier League season and are unbeaten so far in the league. They are currently in the third position in the points table with 13 points in their first five games. They are level on points with leaders Chelsea and Liverpool who are in the second position.
