Manchester United have today announced that Scott McTominay has extended his current contract until 2025, with the option to extend for another year.

Having made his debut during the Jose Mourinho years, plenty of fans had question marks over McTominay’s ability. Plenty of those supporters have happily been proven wrong as the 23-year-old has shown very positive developments.

While having players who are quality is important, it is also necessary to have players at the club who love being here and take pride in wearing our badge, which is why it’s great news McTominay has extended his stay.

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.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has relied on McTominay in midfield and the Scot has done well, most recently scoring in the 2-0 win over Manchester City before the season was suspended. The United manager has spoken about what he expects from McTominay in the future.

Scott has done tremendously well since I joined and has been a vital part of our midfield. 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. As we always say the Academy is the bedrock of the club and having come through the system everyone knows that Scott has shown the exact mentality that you need to succeed at Manchester United. I look forward to seeing his continued improvement in the years to come.
