Iqbal has agreed a new deal that will keep him at United until at least June 2025, with the option to extend for a further year.

The youngster has already played senior international football for Iraq, featuring in two World Cup qualifiers since accepting the call-up to represent the country of his mother’s birth.

The Whalley Range-born Academy graduate is a proud Mancunian of Pakistani and Iraqi heritage.

Iqbal will be looking to hone his talents behind the scenes and maintain his development at the club in the coming months and years.
