Archie Gray, the midfield prospect pursued by Manchester United, extends his contract with Leeds.

Archie Gray, the 17-year-old midfield prospect targeted by Manchester United, has opted to extend his contract with Leeds United, according to Liverpool World. The young player’s contract now runs until the summer of 2028, marking a significant development in his career. Despite his youth, Gray has made 25 appearances in the Championship this season and played a pivotal role in Leeds United’s promotion campaign.

Several top clubs, including Manchester United, Liverpool, Everton, and Crystal Palace, were reportedly willing to pay £40 million to acquire the talented midfielder in the upcoming summer transfer window. However, after signing a contract extension with Leeds, Gray’s market value is likely to have increased.

Leeds United’s official website expressed delight in securing Gray’s commitment, emphasizing his progression from the academy to the first team and his status as a lifelong Leeds United supporter.

Recent reports from The Peoples Person suggested that Manchester United viewed Gray as a potential replacement for Sofyan Amrabat. However, any move for Gray may face delays, and the player’s emotional connection to Leeds could complicate potential deals.

Despite the interest from elite English clubs, Gray’s development over the next year or two will likely be closely monitored before any decisive moves are made by potential suitors.
