Manchester United are reportedly set to offer Scott McTominay a new contract. 

It would be quite the turnaround for the Scotland international who was this time last year deemed surplus to requirements.

The 27-year-old was open to leaving Old Trafford last summer, with West Ham showing interest in the midfielder and Harry Maguire. 

He was far from a first pick under Erik ten Hag earlier this season, but after a series of impressive performances off the bench, scoring several vital goals for United.

The Scotland player has nine goals and three assists in his 34 appearances so far this season. Only Rasmus Hojlund has more goals than him this term.

And the Daily Star claims that United is planning to offer McTominay a new contract as a reward for his fine form.

His current deal expires in the summer of 2025, although their is an option for a further year.

So, while there is no rush to extend the deal of the £60,000-a-week midfielder, new investor Sir Jim Ratcliffe is keen to secure McTominay as part of his long-term planning for the club.

It's reported that McTominay could be in line for a bumper pay rise, which would see his weekly wage doubled to £120,000.

Meanwhile, Germany took just seven seconds to hand out an ominous warning to Scotland ahead of the Euro 2024 opener this summer as they strolled to a hugely impressive win in Lyon.

The Euros host nation had been toiling with only three wins in 11 last year and that prompted manager Julian Nagelsmann to make big changes.

The biggest one was the return of 34-year-old midfielder Toni Kroos three years after retiring from international football and the Real Madrid legend ran the show last night in the backyard of the World Cup runners-up.
