The Red Devils required three second-half goals to overturn a deficit at Old Trafford, but they have now booked their place in the FA Cup semi-finals. Having already won the Carabao Cup, and still in with a chance of winning the Europa League, Erik ten Hag’s men will be hoping to end the season on three trophies.
In the meantime, the international break is now taking hold, and as players jet off to join their respective nations, we have rounded up all the latest news surrounding Old Trafford.
Fabrizio Romano has issued the latest on United’s takeover situation.
“We can say that both groups, Ineos with Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Qatari group with, of course, Sheikh Al Thani both of them are preparing new bids for Manchester United,” Romano said on his YouTube channel.
“The Glazers want around £6-7 billion to sell Man United and both the Qatari group and Ineos group are really interested after talks last week and last few days were very positive. Now, it is time to make a new proposal and enter into a crucial moment of the process. So, keep an eye on the Manchester United situation in the next days and weeks because now we enter into crucial moments of the conversation.”
On the transfer front, it seems Newcastle United are interested in snapping up a United midfielder.
According to Mail Online, Newcastle are hoping to snap up Scott McTominay this summer. Eddie Howe is said to want as many as ‘five or six’ signing as he looks to keep Newcastle as top four contenders. McTominay is said to be part of his transfer plans, and United may well be open to a deal.
McTominay is still an important player for United, but he is likely to find game time increasingly harder to find as Ten Hag looks to further strengthen his midfield this summer.
