Manchester United lost six players on free transfers following the expiry of their contracts this summer.

Several more will see their current deals run out in the summer of 2023 and Tribuna.com is here with the latest round-up -

The 24-year-old is at risk of not playing in the World Cup later this year and he's eager to make a fresh start under Erik ten Hag.

He has just a year to go on his contract, meaning United need to decide if to extend it or let him go. As things stand, he won't be sold this summer.

United also have the option to extend his stay by another year.

Fred has stated that he's happy at the club and has no desire to leave, despite only a year left on his deal. Given his industrious work rate, he could be one of the players Ten Hag relies on next season.

If things work out, United could extend his stay another two-three years.

Ronaldo has ended 2021/22 as our top scorer, scoring 24 goals across competitions. While the temptation to extend his stay is understandable, perhaps United should just let him leave once the year is over.

He will turn 38 next year and is set to play what could be the final World Cup of his career in December.

Despite the slump in form last season, De Gea has made a solid return in 2021/22 to reinstate himself as the undisputed No.1.

The Spaniard was a strong contender for our Player of the Year award, showing how far he's come.

De Gea is only 31 and still has a few years of top football left in him. Extending his stay is a no-brainer.

After a lengthy injury lay-off, Jones returned to first-team action in 2021/22. He put up decent shifts whenever given the chance. However, it is highly unlikely he will get regular chances under Ten Hag.

Thus, United must sell him while they can still recoup a fee instead of losing more players for nothing next summer.

The 35-year-old has hardly played for the club since joining and it's unclear if he will be handed an extension or allowed to leave. If it's the latter, one can only wonder why he was signed in the first place.

Dalot has impressed under Ralf Rangnick and is expected to play under Ten Hag as well. With uncertainty over Aaron Wan-Bissaka's future, United could consider extending the Portuguese defender's contract.

There have been talks over handing Shaw a new contract even as he recovers from an injury at the moment.

He's our first-choice left-back and clearly, Alex Telles struggled to displace the Englishman in his absence. Unless we sign a top left-back, United should hand him a new contract.
