United youngster signs new deal!

Manchester United have confirmed that midfielder Scott McTominay has signed a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2021.

The 20-year-old joined United at the age of five, and has risen through the ranks to the first team squad during this season.

McTominay is predominantly a midfielder, but started out as a striker for the reserves. He made his debut for United last season against Arsenal, and made his Champions League debut on Wednesday against Benfica – perhaps prompting the club to tie him down.

McTominay said via Manutd.com: “I have grown up at this great club and it has always been a big part of my life.”

“I attended the club’s development centre in Preston from the age of five and have gone on to progress from there.”

“To make my debut at the end of last season was a dream come true, and I would like to thank the manager for the faith that he has shown in me. I was absolutely delighted when the manager promoted me to the first-team squad and I am looking forward to continuing my journey with this fantastic team.”

Jose Mourinho continued by praising the youngster, saying that he has total belief in him.

“I am delighted Scott has signed a new contract, he is one of our young players that has gone from strength to strength. He made his Premier League debut at the end of last season and made his Champions League debut this season. I had no hesitation in promoting Scott to the first-team squad last month as we have total belief in him.”
