There isn't one correct answer, it depends on many variables. You can easily decide for the extreme cases, if the sensor resolution much higher than the lens then cropping results in a better image, and v.v.

Most practical uses are in the middle. I personally print large very little, and my output is typically 4k, so cropping works great for me. Perhaps when 8k monitors come out I will change my opinion. But at this point, you need to downsize both full and cropped image to 4k, and taking into account that TC inevitably introduces aberrations reducing image quality, the crop is going to look better. And another valuable thing is that you aren't limited to the central area, you can crop anywhere.
