Mctominay is one of Ole's favourite and is being pushed as an important member of the squad anyways. At the very least I expect him to be on the bench and if he's on the bench that only gives room for one more midfielder on the bench too. This midfield has to be creative and Fred isn't that midfielder.You’re probably right Fred is I’d say a bit better. A bit more quality but I’d say also a little more erratic and inconsistent.
The point more is though we don’t need both of them. The only reason I’d sell Fred is because McTominay is an academy kid who loves the club and will be on lower wages. Sell whichever makes the most financial sense really though.
Basically what I mean is our current midfield is Matic Bruno and Pogba. Mctominay and Fred are the bench options but they offer the same thing. You can call on one of them if you want to get defensive but who do you call when you need better creativity?
