'Magnificent game' could be Scott McTominay's last for Man Utd amid Premier League interest
Scott McTominay produced a 'magnificent' performance against Liverpool on Monday night and now one Premier League club have joined others in wanting to sign the midfielder.
Manchester United looked like a team transformed against their fierce rivals on Monday, considering what had come the week before against Brentford.
Several United players really caught the attention of fans, with Lisandro Martinez's performance at centre back was a highlight and Tyrell Malacia was being compared to Patrice Evra on his first Premier League start.
Erik ten Hag also pinpointed McTominay saying the midfielder had a 'magnificent game,' once again flying in the face of the criticism the 25-year-old has come up against.
However, despite playing brilliantly, it could be his last showing for United, with Premier League clubs circling and, according to one West Ham source, David Moyes is interested in bringing him to the London Stadium.
The Hammers went into the new season full of hope, having just missed out on beating United to a sixth place finish in the previous campaign.
Things haven't started in the way that Moyes and his team would have expected though and they have lost all three of their opening fixtures.
They've already missed out on one midfielder from Old Trafford this summer, with Jesse Lingard choosing Nottingham Forest over a move back to east London.
West Ham fans didn't take too kindly to that, throwing fake money at the England international during their 1-0 loss to Steve Cooper's team.
They could miss out on McTominay as well, with Newcastle United, Everton, Southampton and Leicester City also reportedly interested in the Scotsman.
McTominay's future could be in doubt, not particularly because of his own form but because of the arrival of Casemiro from Real Madrid.
The five time Champions League winner was welcomed onto the pitch before kick off against Liverpool, something Frenkie de Jong was suspiciously a fan of.
The Brazilian will certainly be a starter for Erik ten Hag, even if Graeme Souness somehow isn't a fan, and with other midfield options, it could be the end for McTominay.
