Manchester United have built a squad they hope is capable of breaking into the WSL top three and qualifying for the Champions League for the first time.

In recent years the club made a habit of handing out contracts that included an optional extra year, although since the start of last season those kinds of deals have started to be phased out - instead United's growth and that of women's football in general is seeing contracts adapt.

United have tied down some of their best young talent to long-term deals. But a significant number of players are out of contract at the end of the 2022/23 campaign and only some of those include 12 month options yet to be triggered. Some deals, including those for a few key players, that were due to expire at the end of last season have been extended to next summer.
