Luke Shaw ‘agrees a new FOUR-YEAR contract to stay at Manchester United’ as a reward for his impressive season… with the full-back’s ‘growing maturity and presence’ making him a key player under Erik ten Hag
- Luke Shaw has reportedly agreed a new four-year deal with Manchester United
- The defender signed for them in 2014, and will serve over a decade at the club
- Manager Erik ten Hag reportedly rewarded Shaw for his maturity and presence
Luke Shaw has reportedly agreed a new deal which will keep him at Manchester United for four years.
The 27-year-old defender has been part of the set-up at Old Trafford since 2014, and the new contract will take him over a decade of service to the Red Devils.
The Athletic report that talks between Shaw and the owners have been productive, with the defender now set to remain at the club under the management of Erik ten Hag.
His previous deal was set to expire in 2024, after the club triggered a one-year option on his contract in December.
Shaw has had an impressive first season under ten Hag, playing 35 games, scoring once, and getting six assists.

Erik ten Hag has chosen to reward Shaw for his hard work, maturity and presence in the squad
His maturity and presence in the squad have made him a critical part of Man United’s run to the Carabao Cup trophy, and on track for a top four finish in the Premier League.
However, despite his calmness for his club, it seemed to go awry for his country, as he was sent off for two yellow cards 54 seconds apart in England’s win over Italy last week.
The reported new contract has been struck while the Glazers continue their search for a buyer for Manchester United. At least three takeover bids have been submitted so far.
Shaw joined Man United in 2014 following a £30m transfer from Southampton.
