With new signings likely to be few and far between this summer, we might as well lock down the talent we already have. One player who has certainly justified a new deal is our very own Scott McTominay, aka McSauce.
After breaking onto the scene under Mourinho in 2017, Scott hasn’t looked backed. The player that famously grew 6-inches in a year has the feet of a much smaller player, and the frame of a midfield wrecking ball.
Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has signed a new and improved deal until 2025, with the option of a further a year.
The 23-year-old made his debut in 2017 and has made 75 appearances for the club, scoring six goals.
Academy graduate McTominay has shone for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side this season and has now signed a new five-year contract.
“Whilst I understand that we all have so many other things to think about at the moment, I’m so happy to sign this contract and play a part in the future ahead for this team,” the Scotland international said.
“All I have ever known is United and I hope that my passion for the club shows every time I go onto the pitch. I’ll continue to give everything for this club whenever I pull on the shirt.
“I want to thank the manager for the faith he has shown in me and everyone at the club that has helped me to get where I am today.
“I’m looking forward to finishing this season on a high and hopefully achieving our aims.”
McTominay has made 28 appearances in all competitions this season, despite missing two months due to a knee injury, and has been one of Solskjaer’s standout players.
“Scott has done tremendously well since I joined and has been a vital part of our midfield,” the United boss said.
“He brings determination, tenacity and skill to the game and we know that Scott’s attributes will be a major asset to the squad over the coming years.
The sky’s the limit for the young Scot. With Ole having the deepest midfield bench of his tenure, McSauce will have to fight harder than ever to earn his spot.
The future is bright!
