Manchester United not in a hurry to sell Scott McTominay

Manchester United are in no rush to sell Scott McTominay despite growing interest from Premier League sides in this market. 

According to Football Insider, Manchester United are not worried about Scott McTominay and doesn’t seem to be in a rush to sell the 27-year-old midfielder. The Scotland international enters the final year of his deal, with the club finding a newfound optimism about having him within the ranks of Erik ten Hag’s squad. 

Manchester United to keep Scott McTominay?

In the last two windows, Scott McTominay has seen numerous links with a move away from Manchester United and might have come very close to leaving last summer. Newcastle United have been one of the favourites to sign the 27-year-old, with Eddie Howe a big fan of his talents, although the midfielder might have internally sought to stay at Old Trafford. 

With Erik ten Hag chosen to stay as the club’s manager, there’s a feeling he wants McTominay to remain, which is why Manchester United are not in a hurry to sell the 27-year-old midfielder. There’s sufficient interest from Premier League clubs in the Scotsman, which could land the Red Devils a good profit should they choose to sell him. 

Fulham are one of the clubs interested in McTominay, and Marco Silva is keen to hand him a key role in his squad. Ahead of choosing the Cottagers, the 27-year-old will probably feel other options like Newcastle United will be better suited for his game, although at Craven Cottage, he will have a starring role in Silva’s lineup. 

West Ham are also keen and have retained an interest since the end of the previous campaign. Whether that is the sentiment of Julen Lopetegui remains to be seen. However, at this stage, Manchester United are not seemingly open to selling the midfielder and might evaluate his future at a later date. 

Manchester United making big transfer plans

Earlier today, Manchester United made a 50 million bid for Leny Yoro, which Lille accepted. However, there are doubts about whether the teenage defender wants to join the Red Devils. In any case, they are also closing on Joshua Zirkzee and Matthijs de Ligt, as the Dutch duo will arrive once the Euros conclude. 

The Red Devils are likely to continue searching for new players in different positions, with a wide forward and a midfielder one of their other priorities in this window.
