Scott McTominay, despite being a core part of previous United squads, seems out of favour this summer – Gary Neville labelled the midfielder as unwanted last week.

According to Bayern Munich journalist Christian Falk, United have discussed the possibility of McTominay joining the German club, who are interested in the player. on loan for the coming season.

This could be paired with Dutch midfielder Ryan Gravenberch heading in the other direction, with both players on one-year loan deals.

With the final days of the window well and truly underway, this deal could be the easiest for both parties.
