Manchester United remain confident that Marcus Rashford and Diogo Dalot will extend their contracts in the coming weeks.
Both players have been impressive under Erik ten Hag and many fans wanted them to stay beyond this season.
Their deals expire at the end of the season, but from January they will be able to talk to international clubs.
Rashford has previously been linked to Paris Saint-Germain, while Dalot is attracting interest from a variety of European clubs including Barcelona.
Despite having a contract that expires in the summer, the club has the option to extend it for another year.
This is expected to go live to avoid losing both star players on a free transfer.
David de Gea, Luke Shaw and Cristiano Ronaldo also have deals that expire in the summer.
90min reports that decisions about Dalot and Rashford’s future are likely to be made during the World Cup.
The article claims that talks are progressing between the pair who have been arguably the best Ten Hag players.
The plans are understood to be going in the right direction and United hope to be able to agree new long-term deals.
Both players are expected to participate in the World Cup, and any decision on a new contract could be delayed for weeks due to their participation in the competition.
The media concludes by mentioning that United want competition for places and Dalot lacks quality reinforcements.
A decision could also be made in January on whether to call up Ethan Laird, who is on loan in the Championship.
The Peoples Person previously reported that the club are interested in Dutch right-back Jeremie Frimpong.
