Depending of what happens with Solksjaer, he could have a new boss to impress in the summer and coming off regular football will aid him.

A move could hinge of the future of Marouane Fellaini who may be sold before the end of January.

While Pittodrie is no Old Trafford, playing for a big Scottish club would be a good experience for McTominay.
