According to a report from Mirror, Manchester United face an impending choice regarding one of their existing standout players, as Bayern Munich prepare for potential dealings in the forthcoming January transfer window. It is understood that Scott McTominay has surfaced as a prospective option for Bayern Munich if their pursuit of Joao Palhinha in January falls through.
McTominay’s Outstanding Performance At Old Trafford Last Season
In the recent campaign at the Theatre of Dreams, McTominay had a standout season, playing a crucial role in Erik ten Hag’s midfield setup. The 26-year-old found the back of the net three times and provided one assist in 39 appearances for the Red Devils across various competitions.
This Scottish talent exhibited remarkable solidity in the midfield, consistently averaging 1.3 tackles, 0.6 interceptions, and 1.9 clearances per 90 minutes in the Premier League. Furthermore, he displayed accuracy in his distribution, successfully completing 82.9% of his passes in the English top flight (statistics sourced from whoscored).
His current contract at Old Trafford is set to run out in the summer of 2025. Thus, the German giants would have to launch a sizable offer if they want to sign McTominay in the January transfer window.
Should Erik Ten Hag Sanction His Exit From Old Trafford?
McTominay possesses a strong desire for tackling and exhibits excellent timing in his challenges, effectively regaining possession for his team in the heart of the midfield. He demonstrates a keen ability to anticipate and react to impending threats, readily clearing the danger when the opposition applies pressure.
The Scottish talent is also proficient in winning aerial duels and showcases skillful passing, making him a versatile asset for any potential suitors. At the age of 26, McTominay is approaching the prime years of his career, and he has the potential to shine under the guidance of Erik Ten Hag. Given that his contract extends until the summer of 2025, Manchester United have no immediate pressure to offload him. However, should Bayern Munich present an intriguing offer, Ten Hag might contemplate a potential sale.
