As of today, four Manchester United players are out-of-contract. So far, those guys haven’t put pen to paper on a new deal.
That’s according to the Manchester Evening News. They say that Tosin Kehinde, Zak Dearnley, Callum Whelan and Ethan Hamilton were all offered deals, but are yet to commit their long-term future to Old Trafford.
July 1st is the date when players’ deals expire. Now goes the charge for clubs to pick up free agents. Let’s start with Kehinde, apparently, he’s attracted interest from FC Barcelona, and has demanded that if he is to stay, he must be integrated into the first-team setup.
Hamilton, Dearnley and Whelan all have time on their sides, one or two of them have even enjoyed first-team training with the squad from time-to-time. It’s a case of them weighing up whether it’s better to stay at United and not play, but get the top-level coaching, or move on and hunt for first-team football, perhaps in a lower division.
Obviously, these guys are well within their rights to explore other options, but don’t be surprised to see at least one or two of these to commit eventually. It’s just a waiting game.
