Manchester United have recognized the growth and importance of midfielder Scott McTominay, and as a result have extended his contract until 2025. The contract extension was announced this morning on the team’s official website.
The United academy graduate made his debut in 2017 and has made 75 appearances for the side, scoring six goals to the delight of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who hopes McTominay will be an asset for the club in the days to come.
“Scott has done tremendously well since I joined and has been a vital part of our midfield,” Solskjaer said.
“He brings determination, tenacity, and skill to the game, and we know that Scott’s attributes will be a major asset to the squad over the coming years.”
When asked about his new contract, the Scotland international put it in perspective but was glad to be staying.
“Whilst I understand that we all have so many other things to think about at the moment, I’m so happy to sign this contract and play a part in the future ahead for this team.
“All I have ever known is United and I hope that my passion for the club shows every time I go onto the pitch. I’ll continue to give everything for this club whenever I pull on the shirt. I want to thank the manager for the faith he has shown in me and everyone at the club that has helped me to get where I am today. I’m looking forward to finishing this season on a high and hopefully achieving our aims.’’
McTominay has made 28 appearances in all competitions this season, despite missing two months due to a knee injury.
