West Ham and Newcastle targetting move for Man United star

Scott McTominay, the Manchester United player, is among the potential departures from Old Trafford this summer, with West Ham and Newcastle closely monitoring his situation, writes the COS.

Despite having a contract with Manchester United until 2025, the Scotland international has reportedly expressed his desire to leave this summer, with Football Insider revealing that he has shared his wishes with friends. At the age of 26, McTominay is currently in his prime and seeks regular playing time. His Premier League minutes have been significantly reduced compared to last season, having only started in four matches since September.

Considering his abilities, McTominay has the quality to be a starting midfielder for a team lower in the league standings. Furthermore, it is anticipated that his playing time could be further diminished next season if Erik ten Hag, the rumored managerial target, brings in another midfielder to Old Trafford.

The report highlights West Ham and Newcastle as clubs monitoring McTominay’s situation, as West Ham will require a replacement for the departing Declan Rice, while Newcastle aims to strengthen their squad for their upcoming return to the Champions League.
