Man Utd slap £50m price tag on Scott McTominay with Red Devils in no rush to sell as Newcastle target transfer

Newcastle are one of a host of clubs who are big admirers of the Scottish midfielder — who has been at Old Trafford since he was a kid.

But United bosses have made it clear to both the player and would-be suitors that he is still a valuable member of the squad and they will not be pressured into a sale.

McTominay, 26, is under contract for another two years, with the club also having the option to extend by 12 months beyond that.

Although United are looking to raise transfer funds, they are in no rush to cash in on the man whose two goals gave Scotland a famous win over Spain.

McTominay, who netted the opener against Everton, is convinced he can become a Red Devils regular and has recently held productive talks with manager Erik ten Hag about his future.

The Magpies began chasing a deal for the star in January, but a transfer failed to materialise.

Despite the setback, Eddie Howe is still eager to tempt him to St James’ Park this summer.

McTominay has been at Man Utd since the age of five.

He joined the club’s academy in 2002 and rose through the ranks before signing his first professional contract eleven years later.

His Premier League debut came in 2017 and he has since made 205 first team appearances for the Red Devils.

McTominay could be one of seven first team players to leave Old Trafford this summer.

Anthony Martial, Harry Maguire, David De Gea and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are among the others who could also move on at the end of the season.
