Scott McTominay ‘worried’ about Man United game time, is ‘open’ to move away
| Last updated
Manchester United star Scott McTominay is reportedly worried about his lack of game time and would be open to making a move to Newcastle United.
McTominay started six of United’s seven games in the Premier League but was eventually demoted to the substitutes bench after the signing of Casemiro from Real Madrid.
Since the Brazilian’s arrival, McTominay has seen his opportunities drop and has not started a league game since the embarrassing 6-3 derby defeat by Manchester City in October.
In recent weeks, the Scotsman has only started games in the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup.
According to The Daily Telegraph, the 26-year-old is worried about the lack of game time being handed to him by Erik ten Hag.
It is believed that high-flying Newcastle are interested in McTominay and could make an offer to tempt the midfielder to move to St.James’ Park.
In addition, it was reported that McTominay would be open to the move and is keen on the idea of playing under Magpies boss Eddie Howe.
However, it remains to be seen whether United will sanction a move, especially when they are fighting with Newcastle in the Premier League table, with only goal difference separating the two at the moment.
Furthermore, with the Red Devils still involved in four competitions, it is unlikely that they will sell McTominay considering the fact that they only have four senior midfield options.
After their Manchester derby win on Saturday, Ten Hag told fans they can dream of a potential title charge but he will not get carried away.
The Dutchman said: “The fans may dream but we’re not. We have to keep our feet on the ground and then face that our game has a lot to improve.”
United are back in action on Wednesday night as they take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, before a huge clash against league leaders Arsenal on Sunday.
Can United win the Premier League? Only time will tell.
