Scott McTominay has signed a new contract at Manchester United, which will keep him at Old Trafford until 2025, with the option to extend for a further year.
This season he has become a greater influence in the first-team and could be considered United’s most improved player, along with fellow midfielder Fred.
At 23, a lot of people at United have seen McTominay progress as a kid into a first-team player, since he’s been a product of our famed Academy since 2012. He made his debut in 2017 against Arsenal and has gone onto make 75 appearances for the senior team scoring 6 goals.
Obviously buzzing with the announcement, McTominay said: “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 of this team.
“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.”
United still have a few objectives they want to achieve this season. One of those is a top four finish to qualify for next season’s Champions League campaign, and the other is a trophy from either the FA Cup or Europa League (winning the latter will also grant us CL football next term).
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added: “Scott has done tremendously well since I joined and has been a vital part of our midfield. 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.
“As we always say the Academy is the bedrock of the club and having come through the system everyone knows that Scott has shown the exact mentality that you need to succeed at Manchester United. I look forward to seeing his continued improvement in the years to come.”
We are delighted with the news and hopefully it’s not long before there’s an update on Angel Gomes’ future.
