Scott McMahon revealed that at one point he was likely to leave Manchester United, but he wanted to stay at Old Trafford.

Premier League teams often send talented young players for temporary spells, allowing them to get regular first-team minutes to move forward with their development.

At one point after coming through the academy at McTomney, he set out for United, but decided to stay instead.

The Scottish midfielder made his debut under Jose Mourinho in a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in May 2013 and has continued to flourish under manager Ole Gunnar Soulsky, despite being no longer in charge of the Portuguese boss.

Yet, despite his tremendous growth after securing a place in one of the largest clubs in the world, McMahon insisted that it was important to stay grounded.

“About a year and a half ago, there was a time [a loan move] “While there was a possibility, but then someone else left or something like that,” he said while appearing on the UTD podcast, “then your chance comes and you have to take it.”

“You guys hear a lot of stories about taking loans and things like that and I’ve always had it in my head that I don’t want it. I want to show myself here first and, if it doesn’t work here, then you go somewhere else.

“For me, you’ve heard the story of a luxurious life at Manchester United and people value it; like canteen food, your kit is kept for you every morning.

“People just expect it and you always have to remember where you came from, with respect, and people can always appreciate what you do for me. I think our culture has brought that into us.”

McTomoy scored four goals despite the injury issue despite the Coron Virus Hits gaining 20 Premier League appearances in the 2019-20 campaign.
