West Ham put off by Manchester United’s valuation for Scott McTominay

Manchester United are not willing to part ways with Scott McTominay for less than £40 million, according to reports.

West Ham have long been seen as admirers of the Scotland international, but the Daily Mirror claims the Hammers have been put off by United’s valuation of the midfielder.

McTominay, 26, knows since last season that his game time will be limited at Old Trafford. Mason Mount’s arrival this summer will only make it more difficult for him to earn a place in Erik ten Hag’s preferred line-up.

Casemiro will be our anchor in midfield and we’ve also got Bruno Fernandes and Christian Eriksen available.

At the same time, United’s reluctance to accept less than £40m for McTominay is understandable. Especially for West Ham after they just pocketed £105m for Declan Rice.

McTominay’s contract is not up until the summer of 2025 and United have an option to extend that by a further year.

After selling Anthony Elanga to Nottingham Forest this week, the report also states that United are open to offers for Harry Maguire, Fred and Dean Henderson.

  1. The question for West Ham is how much are they willing to pay for McTominay and how much they want him. United are tired of giving players away for nothing. Now it’s up to West Ham, if you want him, test the waters, you might like the reply.

  2. So Westham can’t pay £40m for him but they can pay it for Chelsea’s Gallagher, what an irony… It’s high time Manchester United started adding value to the price of our players!

  3. McTominay will struggle to get any game time with Man United . His real value is about 30 million as is Gallagher’s . The difference is Gallagher will have a bigger role for Chelsea as they don’t have any other midfielders at the club .
