Bayern Munich seems poised to escalate its pursuit of Manchester United’s midfielder, Scott McTominay, as the January transfer window looms on the horizon.
This shift in focus comes on the heels of Bayern’s near-miss in their relentless chase of Fulham’s midfield maestro, Joao Palhinha, a revelation unveiled by informed sources.
During the recent summer transfer window, the German football powerhouse came tantalizingly close to securing the services of Joao Palhinha, a midfield gem who held the top slot on Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel’s priority list. However, football’s unpredictable winds took a different course when Palhinha opted to extend his commitment to Fulham by inking a fresh contract with the club.
In light of this unexpected twist, Tuchel now finds himself navigating alternative routes to reinforce his midfield, and one prominent name that has surfaced on his radar is none other than Scott McTominay.
At the age of 26, McTominay has observed a decline in his status within the hierarchy at Old Trafford. Manchester United’s ambitious recruitment drive in the midfield department has translated into diminishing playing time for the talented Scottish international.
World Football Rumours
In the preceding season, McTominay managed to make 24 appearances in the Premier League, although he found himself in the starting lineup on just 10 occasions, with Casemiro and Christian Eriksen being the preferred choices to fill his role.
According to the latest assessment by Transfermarkt.com, McTominay commands an impressive market value of 25 million euros.
The summer transfer window witnessed the arrivals of Mason Mount and Sofyan Amrabat to bolster Manchester United’s midfield arsenal, further narrowing the windows of opportunity for McTominay. To date, he has accumulated a mere 92 minutes of action in the Premier League, while Amrabat awaits his debut in the league.
As events continue to unfold, the prospect of a surprising transfer to one of Europe’s footballing giants, Bayern Munich, seems increasingly likely for Scott McTominay. The footballing world eagerly anticipates the developments set to transpire as the January transfer window approaches.
