Newcastle board has fully open up on adding another huge Midfielder from the PL gaint rival to the club this summer with huge contact made this week.
According to reports, Newcastle United and Manchester United have spoken about Scott McTominay. The Magpies reportedly “made preliminary inquiries” about the Red Devils midfielder early in the transfer window, according to The Times.
In addition to Newcastle, another undisclosed Premier League team is said to have expressed interest in McTominay. The Old Trafford team, according to the report, would reject any offers for the Scotland international.
McTominay is allegedly a favourite of new Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag. And it appears that the player wants to remain at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils only have McTominay, Fred, and Donny van de Beek as their senior midfielders at the moment.

This summer, the team lost Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Nemanja Matic, and Juan Mata. There is no doubting that McTominay is a top-tier midfielder.
The 25-year-old has received praise from several prominent football experts, and Diego Simeone even asserted that he is among the finest midfielders in the world.
He stated of the Red Devils in February, before to their Champions League round of 16 first-leg matchup with Atletico Madrid, “They have an amazing midfield.
“The work rate is really impressive. Two of the top midfielders in the world with excellent balance are Pogba and McTominay.
Fair or not, the Magpies should surely be looking elsewhere because McTominay is out of their reach.
The player wants to stay at Old Trafford, the team needs midfielders, and his new boss thinks highly of him.
As if that weren’t enough, McTominay’s contract is good until 2025, and Manchester United has the option to extend it by another year.
Newcastle certainly tested the waters, and the Red Devils apparently informed them they weren’t interested in doing business.
