Manchester United could part ways with a key midfielder when the upcoming transfer window swings open.
As reported by Football Insider, this decision is seen as a strategic move by the club to generate additional funds for further investments.
McTominay, at the age of 26, has already amassed an impressive 210 appearances for the Red Devils across various competitions. However, his role at Old Trafford has predominantly been that of a bit-part player, and this trend seems likely to continue.
His prospects of featuring regularly this season have been further diminished following the arrivals of Mason Mount and Sofyan Amrabat. Last season, the Scottish international made a total of 39 appearances for the club, but in the current campaign, he has started in just one of Manchester United’s five Premier League fixtures.
During the recent transfer window, McTominay reportedly garnered interest from multiple Premier League sides. Even more surprisingly, the reigning German champions, Bayern Munich, have been linked with a potential shock move for the player.
Manchester United has been relatively active in the transfer market over the summer, making significant investments. In light of these expenditures, offloading McTominay could provide the club with a valuable injection of funds to support future recruitment and strengthen the squad.
It’s worth noting that McTominay is under contract with Manchester United until the summer of 2025, which could potentially command a substantial transfer fee if the club decides to part ways with him.
