Manchester United’s transfer window has been chaotic but players leaving on expiring contracts aside, there haven’t been many outgoings for Erik ten Hag’s side.
Andreas Pereira joined Fulham on a permanent deal earlier this summer and Eric Bailly is expected to join Marseille but many of the misfits from previous campaigns remain.
United have announced that an agreement has been reached with Real Madrid over the transfer of Casemiro and now, there are suggestions that the Brazilian’s arrival could pave the way for Scott McTominay to leave United.
According to talkSPORT, four Premier League clubs are interested in taking the Scotland international after Casemiro’s arrival is sure to reduce his minutes on the pitch.
As per the report, Leicester, Newcastle, Everton and West Ham are all interested in McTominay, who has three years remaining on his contract at United.
Earlier this summer, it was revealed that Erik ten Hag had no plans to part ways with McTominay this summer after deeming the 25-year-old to be a pivotal cog in the squad.
According to the statistical website Transfermarkt, McTominay is valued at €32m.
United are incredibly light in midfield and even with Casemiro’s arrival, the Reds are expected to scour the market for another player in that area.
Letting McTominay leave would be incredibly irresponsible and it would completely negate what Ten Hag is trying to achieve. In truth, he has fallen victim to the reactive nature of supporters online.
McTominay has been a favourite under both Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Jose Mourinho and there’s little to suggest that Ten Hag is not keen on working with him.
