Manchester United will be looking to lift their first trophy since 2017 when they face Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday. 

The two sides will meet at Wembley for what promises to be an entertaining encounter, with Erik ten Hag looking to guide his side to silverware during his first season in charge.

United have been in fine form lately, with Marcus Rashford particularly impressive since the World Cup.

New midfield duo Casemiro and Christian Eriksen have also impressed, while Marcel Sabitzer has looked impressive in the handful of games he has played since joining the club on loan from Bayern Munich.

Despite this, it appears that The Red Devils could be prepared to sell one of their midfielders this season.

As per Football Insider, United are ready to listen to offers for Scotland international Scott McTominay.

It is claimed that the club will consider selling the player this summer and are confident that they can demand £25 million for him.

McTominay looks likely to eave Old Trafford this summer

McTominay, 26, has been a regular for United over the past few seasons, but he has fallen slightly out of favour since Ten Hag’s arrival last summer.

This term, the Scot has only started seven Premier League matches, with Casemiro and Eriksen starting the season as the Dutchman’s first choice pairing.

Brazilian Fred has also been preferred to McTominay, who failed to take advantage of Eriksen’s recent injury as Sabitzer has joined the club and instantly become a regular starter ahead of him.

In total, McTominay has made 195 appearances for The Red Devils, although it appears increasingly likely that his time at Old Trafford could be coming to an end.

The midfielder’s contract is set to expire in the summer of 2025 which means United are under little pressure to sell, but regardless of that it appears that those in charge at Old Trafford are ready to cash in.

Ten Hag has reportedly been told by the board that players will have to be sold in order to raise funds for further signings this summer and McTominay, who spent 15 years win the club’s youth system, is one of those likely to leave.
