Newcastle are set “to make” a “move” for Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay this summer, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The 26-year-old has been a bit-part player since the arrival of manager Erik ten Hag and he could leave Old Trafford for more first team football at the end of the season.
McTominay was given his senior debut by Jose Mourinho, with the former Chelsea boss having previously described him in glowing terms:
“Scott McTominay is a kid with a special character, very humble, aggressive in a positive way, brave, he’s a special kid.”
Newcastle tried to make a move for the Scottish international during the January transfer window, but his club were unwilling to sell the player to a team they deemed a rival for Champions League qualification.
However, circumstances could change this summer. Ten Hag’s side are expected to make further additions in midfield, and that will leave McTominay surplus to requirements.
With that being the case, the Red Devils are unlikely to turn down a serious bid from Newcastle if they receive one.
