Why Ten Hag selling of a ‘Colossus’ £50m valued player would be more disastrous to Man United 


Why Ten Hag selling of a ‘Colossus’ £50m valued player would be more disastrous to Man United 

continues to perform on the international scene, guiding Scotland’s march toward European Championship qualification.

Scott McTominay is one player who appears to be on his way out of Old Trafford this summer.

Erik ten Hag played the midfielder sparingly in the final four games of the season, only allowing him 38 minutes of involvement.

His role in the Scotland team, on the other hand, couldn’t be more different, as a consistently commanding presence and, more importantly, a clinical goal threat.

The 26-year-old has five goals in four Scotland appearances, including a brace against Nations League champions Spain. This scoring run has sent Scotland to the top of their qualifying group.

McTominay is revered in Scotland for his “dominant presence,” which prompted BBC Scotland to proclaim, “he’s been a colossus in a team of giants.”

High praise for a guy ten Hag appears to be willing to discard, which is why we believe he shouldn’t. The club has reportedly set a fee of £50 million for the midfielder, which is certainly too excessive.

Allowing McTominay to depart is a huge mistake.

McTominay has continually earned the trust of his coaches, from Jose Mourinho to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

This streak came to an end when ten Hag appeared to lose faith early in the season. The Scot’s technical skill and passing can leave a lot to be desired at times. As a result, he may struggle in a deeper role.

He flourishes more forward, coming into the box as a late runner with a devastating shot. After seeing McTominay score many goals for Scotland, it’s difficult not to wonder what he may have done if he was used as an offensive eight under ten Hag.

Newcastle has been the club most heavily associated with him. Allowing this transfer to go through would be a massive error, since He would significantly boost a direct Champions League foe.

McTominay appears tailor-made for Eddie Howe’s high-tempo game and would undoubtedly prosper under his direction.

Another reason to keep McTominay is because he provides something Manchester United does not have. A strong, tall, mobile, and enthusiastic midfielder who is excellent for ten Hag’s system.

Given their physical similarities, the only way it would be fair to let him leave would be in a trade for Declan Rice.
