Scott McTominay understood to be open to Newcastle transfer
Newcastle United plan to make a bid for Scott McTominay if they receive any encouragement from Manchester United that he is available, with The Telegraph reporting that he is understood to be open to joining the Magpies.
McTominay’s future at Old Trafford looks to have a question mark hanging over it. The Scotland international has not played 90 minutes in the Premier League since early September.
And with Casemiro proving to be an unbelievable signing, it is little surprise that he is being linked with a move away from Erik ten Hag’s side in the coming weeks.
McTominay open to Newcastle move
McTominay has plenty of admirers on Tyneside. The Telegraph reports that Newcastle have expressed an interest in the 26-year-old. And many at the club are big fans of the midfielder.
Newcastle plan to make a bid if they learn that Manchester United would be open to letting him go. McTominay meanwhile, is understood to be willing to consider a switch to St James’ Park. He has concerns about staying while he is not playing regularly.
McTominay could prove to be a really smart signing for Newcastle if a deal is possible this month. He is not far off making 200 appearances for Manchester United.
He still appears to be in ten Hag’s plans, rarely missing out on a squad, even if he is not playing on a consistent basis.
Jose Mourinho previously suggested that he is a ‘special‘ player. And Newcastle have got very little wrong in the market since the new owners came in.
McTominay is one of those players who shows glimpses of being able to reach a completely different level. But he has, so far, not been able to take that next step.
Newcastle will hope that the lure of playing more often helps them secure his signature.
