According to Ben Jacobs, Manchester United have triggered contract extensions for Diogo Dalot, Fred, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford spanning until the end of next season.
The latter of whom, Rashford, has reportedly been on Paris Saint-Germain’s wishlist.

Are Paris Saint-Germain Still Interested in Signing Marcus Rashford?
On December 8, The Guardian reported that PSG were interested in signing Rashford, although such rumours had circulated for months prior.
This interest is very understandable, given the Englishman’s success at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which saw him score three goals for The Three Lions. His improved form can also likely be attributed to the appointment of Erik ten Hag at United.
However, following the recent extension of Rashford’s contract, which was due to expire in June, PSG’s prospects of signing the 25-year-old have somewhat faded.
Marcus Rashford isn’t the only United player to have recently had his contract extended. Fellow Englishman Luke Shaw also belongs in that category, as does Portugal’s Diogo Dalot and Brazil’s Fred.

David de Gea’s Future at Manchester United Remains Uncertain
Despite the series of successful contract extensions, negotiations with David de Gea are still ongoing, as reported by Simon Stone of the BBC. His deal with United expires at the end of the season.
If an agreement is yet to be reached by January 1, de Gea will be able to agree to pre-contract terms with another club. This prospect should not be taken lightly, as the 32-year-old arguably has been United’s most integral player for the last 10 years.
Earlier this season, the Spaniard even joined the very exclusive club of having made 500 appearances for United.
