When does the contract of every Man Utd player expire?

Manchester United were one of the biggest spenders in the summer transfer window, shelling out £131 million on new players that they hope will deliver major silverware back to Old Trafford.

Long-term target Jadon Sancho finally made his move from Borussia Dortmund for £73m, while an even longer wait for a centre-back was ended by the acquisition of Raphael Varane, who joined from Real Madrid for £34m.

The most eye-catching move of the window for the Red Devils, and arguably across all of Europe, was the shock return of Cristiano Ronaldo for £24m from Juventus.

These three major deals have set Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side up for a title challenge in the Premier League as well as a strong Champions League campaign.

But the window of time for United to achieve success could be narrowing, looking at the contract situation at Old Trafford.

Both Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani are into the final 12 months of their deals at the club. The latter seems almost certain to leave at the end of the season, and Pogba remains perennially linked with a move away.

The Frenchman is approaching his prime at 28 years of age and has started this season superbly, with five assists through the first three Premier League games.

A host of United stars are set to have their contracts expire at the end of 2022-23 season, including Ronaldo himself – though there is an option in his deal for an extra year, which would take him beyond his 39th birthday.

Fred, David de Gea, Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw are all also set to expire in 2023 alongside Nemanja Matic and Diogo Dalot.

Other notable contracts include Anthony Martial’s, which doesn’t expire until 2024, which could make it difficult for the club to sell him on prior to that if his form continues to stutter.

The summer of 2025 could be a busy one at Old Trafford with Bruno Fernandes, Harry Maguire, Mason Greenwood and Varane just a few of a number of players set to expire in four years’ time.

Jadon Sancho is currently on the longest deal at the club, with his bumper contract running all the way until the end of the 2025-26 season.
