January 23 According to the latest report from The Athletic UK ace reporter David Ornstein
Newcastle have held talks to sign Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay in January, but any move is expected to have to wait until the summer, as United are unwilling to erode their squad depth by selling players in this window
Eddie Howe has been on the lookout for a new midfielder and appreciates McTominay’s athleticism and ability on the ball.
McTominay will be Howe’s key addition in midfield, and at Old Trafford the management need to sell players to recoup the money to buy Ten Hag, or they will face UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules.
Sources have revealed that United will not be selling any players in the final days of the transfer window, with limited time to reinvest, and ten Hag sees McTominay as a valuable addition to his squad.
But considering Newcastle’s continued appreciation for McTominay and Manchester United’s tight financial situation, they will reassess this year’s summer window.
