£20m Middlesbrough player could play his final game

For Michael Carrick’s team, the season has been unpredictable, but recently they have truly lived up to their promise, suffering just one loss in the last ten games, and that came in a valiant effort against Leeds United.

On Saturday, Boro’s dominance was evident in southeast Wales as they defeated Cardiff City 4-1 and rose to eighth place in the Championship standings.
The focus now shifts to Saturday lunchtime, when they welcome Watford at Riverside Stadium for the season’s last game.
Having said that, it might be the £20 million Boro star’s final game.

According to The Standard, Hayden Hackney has had a tremendous season in the Middlesbrough engine room. As a result, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Tottenham Hotspur were keeping an eye on him during the January transfer window.

Boro executives are expecting bids this summer, but they are in a good position because the 21-year-old only signed an extension last year, thus his deal is set until 2027.

“Middlesbrough’s head of football, Kieran Scott, has said that they have received interest from Premier League clubs for Hackney,” EFL analyst Carlton Palmer said in an interview with Football League World.He has said that the club is not interested in selling him right now, but he knows that if he keeps improving and playing the way he does, that interest will only increase.
It remains to be seen if Saturday’s matchup with the visiting Hornets would mark Hackney’s last game for the Boro, but there is no assurance he will be able to participate.

The England under-21 player is almost ready to make a comeback, but Carrick acknowledged they are preserving his professional standing.

“With both boys (Hackney and Coburn) on the line, you could probably try to expedite the process.” But we have to take care of them because they are both young players. It’s not about today, this month; rather, it’s about where they want to go in their careers,” the Boro manager stated.

Thus, that certainly plays a part in our thinking. Not that we’ve slowed down at all, but as we approach the finish, there is undoubtedly a genuine feeling of figuring out what the boys’ best interests are and what comes first.
