Manchester United set to offer new bumper deal to star who they tried to sell last summer

McTominay to get a massive payday as United look to extend his contract

Once deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford, Scott McTominay is set to stay with Sir Jim Ratcliffe, driving the decision, per the Daily Star.

The report insists the Scottish midfielder is set to stay at Manchester United beyond the upcoming summer transfer window. There was a time less than 12 months from now when United were looking to cash in on his services, although Sir Jim Ratcliffe has vetoed his possible departure as Erik ten Hag & Co. are readying a new contract for the 27-year-old.

Scott McTominay has proven to be a savior time-and-time again for United this season. The goal tally of nine, accompanied by three assists, portrays his importance for the club and how clutch he has been in a few moments this season. 

That clinical touch in front of goal has not only got the Dutch boss backing him but has also got the club’s new football hierarchy about his credentials to remain at the club.

The 27-year-old still has 15 months on his current contract at Old Trafford, with United having a one-year option, so the club is in no hurry to offer a contract, but the officials at the club believe it is important to reward Scott for his performances on the pitch and his attitude off-the-pitch.

A new contract can double his current pay day to £120,000-a-week which should stop potential transfer interest over the summer, as Newcastle and West Ham expressed interest in landing the Scot last July.
