Done Deal; Whelan and Dearnley To Remain At Old Trafford
There is a good news for Manchester United fans this morning as their club have reportedly renewed two of their player’s signatures.
According to the Red Devils via their official page, Whelan and Dearnley have both extended their stay at Old Trafford by signing a new contract offered them by the club’s hierarchy.
Both players are 19 years old and they are presently in the club’s Under-23 setup and they will be hoping to break into Mourinho’s first-team squad in the coming season.
Marcus Rashford and Scott mcTominay both graduated from United’s academy in 2015 and 2017 respectively, they will serve as an inspiration to the Whelan and Dearnley, who are in Austria for their pre-season tour.
Though the length of their new contract was undisclosed by the Red Devils, the youngsters are believed to remain at the Theater of Dreams for more than three seasons.
However, Mourinho might prefer sending them on a loan move to other clubs this summer so as to help them gain quality first-team actions, which will help them develop their overall performances.
There are intense competition for a place in the team’s midfield position, therefore, next season could be too soon for Whelan and his teammate Dearnley to break into the Portuguese squad.
At the moment, a loan move to a Premier League club is the best option for both players, if they must reach their full potentials in the nearest future.
