Wolverhampton Wanderers are in talks to sign Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay, according to journalist Tim Spiers.
The Golden Boys have been looking to add a central midfielder by any means before the end of the transfer window, and it appears the 20-year-old appears to be the man.
McTominay has never left Manchester United before and made his debut for the Red Devils against Arsenal last year, coming on as a substitute. He then started his first game in United’s youngest ever starting eleven in a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.
The club are looking to add to their midfield in their 4-3-3 formation, having signed Ruben Neves this summer, along with Roman Saiss and Jack Price.
They’ve just had Dave Edwards leave for Reading, and perhaps McTominay will serve as his replacement.
This could be an extremely good move from Wolves. McTominay is an emerging star at Manchester United who impressed in his appearances with the Red Devils last season, and could serve as a smart addition.
He is far more attacking than the midfielders that Wolves already have, with Neves, Saiss and Price all very defensive minded. Thus, it offers them something different in midfield.
I think this also makes him a better move than signing Colback, who offers nothing that the three listed above don’t already.
It gives the youngster a real opportunity to demonstrate what he can do. If he wants a career at Manchester United he needs to start showing what he can do in the second tier, and that can work to Wolves’s advantage.
Wolves fans… What do you make of this? Would McTominay make a good signing? Let us know in the comments below.
