Scott McTominay could stay at Manchester United this summer following Mason Mount injury
Manchester United could end up keeping Scott McTominay at the club this summer following the injury to Mason Mount, according to the Mirror.
The England international picked up a hamstring issue and is set to be on the sidelines potentially for six weeks. As a result, the 24-year-old could miss a number of our upcoming fixtures.
McTominay has been attracting interested from a number of teams in the ongoing transfer window. West Ham United have put in a bid for the Scotland international, while Newcastle have also had him on their radar.
As a result, the midfielder looked to be on his way out of the Old Trafford side. However, with the Chelsea academy graduates picking up a knock, the possibility of the 26-year-old remaining at the Red Devils has increased.
McTominay made his way through the youth ranks at United before breaking into the first team a few years back. The Scottish national was a key player for the Red Devils for a period of time, forming a partnership with Fred.
However, with the arrival of Erik ten Hag McTominay and the Brazil international lost their place in the starting lineup. This summer, the former Shakhtar Donetsk star has left the Old Trafford side and joined Fenerbahce.
The Scottish national was a bit-part player in the previous campaign. Casemiro was the gaffer’s preferred option in the number six position in the 2022/23 term.
McTominay has been left on the bench in the opening two games of the new season. However, with Mount now out injured, Christian Eriksen and the Scottish national seem like the two options who can replace him in the starting lineup. Donny van de Beek has failed to live up to expectations at the club.

Whether McTominay will be given a chance in the team by Ten Hag remains to be seen. Considering the lack of depth in our engine room, it would not be prudent to sell the Scottish national in the coming weeks.
