AS Roma boss Jose Mourinho ‘tracking’ Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay
Former Manchester United and current AS Roma boss Jose Mourinho is ‘tracking the situation’ of Scott McTominay this summer, according to CBS Sports’ Ben Jacobs via The United Stand on Twitter (h/t The Sun).
As things stand, the Scotland international’s future at the Old Trafford side is uncertain. To that end, the Giallorossi are keeping tabs on the midfielder in the ongoing transfer window.
However, Erik ten Hag is an admirer of the 26-year-old. However, the gaffer could deem him surplus to requirements if a generous offer arrives.
Apart from the Serie A giants, the Red Devils’ academy graduate is being eyed by a Premier League team as well. Brighton & Hove Albion are considering him as a replacement for Moises Caicedo, who is a target for Chelsea.
McTominay made his way through the youth ranks at United. Subsequently, the midfielder got a break in the Old Trafford side’s first-team setup under Mourinho.
The Portuguese manager has revived his pedigree in Italy with Roma. After winning the Europa Conference League in the 2021/22 campaign, the Giallorossi also played the Europa League final last season, losing to Sevilla.
At United, the Scottish national has lost his influence in the team. For a couple of seasons, he and Fred were ever-present in the double pivot under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
However, with the arrival of Casemiro and Christian Eriksen last summer, McTominay has been a backup under Erik ten Hag. The Dutch manager preferred the Brazilian in the number six position in his first year in the Manchester-based club’s dugout.
