"We're at the beginning of our journey..." - Luke Shaw signs new deal with Man Utd until 2027

"We're at the beginning of our journey..." - Luke Shaw signs new deal with Man Utd until 2027

He's signed a new deal at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have confirmed Luke Shaw has signed a new deal with the club until 2027.

The defender has made 249 appearances for United since joining from Southampton in 2014.

Earlier this season, United triggered a one-year extension in Shaw's contract to keep him at Old Trafford until 2024.

He has now put pen to paper on a new long-term deal as expected.

"Nine years ago, I signed for this amazing club, and I'm thrilled to be extending my stay. I've grown immensely since coming to Manchester all those years ago, both as a person and as a player; I know what is needed to succeed at a club like this," he added.

"We're at the beginning of our journey under the manager and his coaching staff. We've been successful already this season, but we want much more.

"There's a great opportunity to create something special here, and I'm going to give everything to be part of that."

Manchester United's football director John Murtough added: "Luke is a massively important player to the squad and has grown into one of the best defenders in the world.

"He has been at the club for nearly a decade and understands the expectations for success, and the hard work, commitment and high standards required to achieve it.

"He has added leadership to his other outstanding abilities, and we all look forward to seeing him in a Manchester United shirt for years to come."

Man Utd working on other deals

After tying Shaw down to a new long-term deal, United will now hope to resolve the contract situations of Marcus Rashford, David de Gea and Diogo Dalot.

Like Shaw, United triggered one-year contract extensions in Rashford and Dalot's contracts earlier this season to keep them at Old Trafford until 2024.

United are holding contract negotiations with both players over new long-term deals, with Erik ten Hag desperate to keep top scorer Rashford amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

Meanwhile, the club is also in talks with De Gea over a new deal.

The Spaniard is out of contract at the end of the season and the club have opted not to trigger a one-year extension in his deal, with United keen for him to reduce his salary to remain with the Red Devils.
