Scott McTominay is reportedly in line to be rewarded with a bumper new double-your-money deal by Manchester United.
If the exclusive report by The Sun is to be believed, Manchester United are planning to hand Scott McTominay a bumper new deal. This new contract will double his wages to £60,000-a-week, with the Premier League heavyweights eager to reward the Scottish international for his solid performances this season.
McTominay joined the Manchester United academy as a six-year-old before gradually progressing through the ranks in the youth setup at the club. The 23-year-old, though, never really had the spotlight shining on him during his youth footballing his days and it came as a surprise when he made his first-team debut midway through the 2016-17 season.
Over the next two seasons, McTominay continued to make stable progress within the first-team setup, but it is only upon the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that the Scot has stepped his game up further and repay the faith that Jose Mourinho had shown in him when he burst onto the scene in the Manchester United first-team.
This season, the player has gone from strength to strength, becoming an indispensable figure under the tutelage of Solskjaer and taking on more responsibility. McTominay has only missed a couple of Premier League games so far this term, having been sidelined with injury at the time.
So, while there have been a myriad of issues that have plagued the Manchester United midfield in the current campaign, McTominay has been a consistent figure in the middle of the park. And, United are planning to hand the 23-year-old for his top class performances with a new contract.
McTominay only signed an extension with Manchester United earlier this year, but the Premier League heavyweights now want to bump his wages up as a reward for an impressive start to the season.
McTominay currently pockets £30,000 per week and is now set to have a double-your-money deal tabled to him. The new contract, worth £60,000-a-week, will run till the summer of 2025, with Manchester United also reserving the option to extend it by a further 12 months.
In a year that has been marked by first-team regulars signing contract renewals, McTominay is set to become the latest to put pen to paper on a fresh deal, a reward for a strong start to the season.
