Bayern Munich appears poised to intensify its efforts to secure the services of Manchester United’s midfielder, Scott McTominay, during the upcoming January transfer window.
This development comes in the wake of Bayern’s near-miss in the pursuit of Fulham’s Joao Palhinha, as reported by sources.
During the recent summer transfer window, the German footballing powerhouse came tantalizingly close to acquiring the talents of Joao Palhinha, a midfielder who was a top priority for Bayern’s manager, Thomas Tuchel. However, the landscape changed significantly when Palhinha opted to commit to Fulham by signing a new contract with the club.
As a result of this unforeseen twist, Tuchel has been forced to explore alternative options to reinforce his midfield. One prominent name on his transfer shortlist is none other than Scott McTominay.
At the age of 26, McTominay has witnessed a decline in his standing within the pecking order at Old Trafford. The influx of several new midfield acquisitions by Manchester United has resulted in reduced playing time for the Scottish international.
In the previous season, McTominay managed to make 24 appearances in the Premier League, albeit with only 10 starts, as Casemiro and Christian Eriksen primarily occupied his position.

Presently, Transfermarkt.com evaluates McTominay’s market value at an impressive 25 million euros.
This summer saw the addition of Mason Mount and Sofyan Amrabat to Manchester United’s midfield ranks, further limiting McTominay’s opportunities. He has thus far accumulated a mere 92 minutes of Premier League action, with Amrabat yet to make his league debut.
It now appears that a surprising transfer move to one of Europe’s preeminent clubs, Bayern Munich, could be in the cards for Scott McTominay. The football world will undoubtedly be keeping a close eye on this intriguing development as the January transfer window approaches.
