Manchester United decide to keep Scott McTominay, will give him a new contract

Manchester United have decided to hand Scott McTominay a new contract. 

The 27-year-old was deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford and looked close to leaving the club last summer amid interest from Newcastle United and West Ham United

However, he stayed in Manchester and has since proved to be an important member of Erik ten Hag’s first-team squad.

His excellent displays this season have led United to make a U-turn. They want to keep the Scotland international at Old Trafford, as per the Daily Star

Sir Jim Ratcliffe is reportedly looking to tie him to a longer contract with a pay rise. 

His current £60,000-per-week deal at United expires in 2025, with the club having the option to extend it by another year. 

Keeping McTominay is a good decision 

McTominay has been excellent for United this season, and he deserves a new contract. 

He has made 25 Premier League appearances this campaign, scoring seven goals. 

The midfielder averages 5.10 expected goals and has a 20 percent goal conversion rate. 

He also makes 1.6 tackles, 0.4 interceptions and 1.6 clearances per top-flight game on average. 

McTominay first made his competitive debut in May 2017. 

He has now made over 240 senior appearances for the Red Devils, bagging 28 goals and eight assists.
