A decision will be made by Erik ten Hag regarding the situation of Victor Lindelof and Scott McTominay this summer. Lindelof’s contract expires in 2024, so United either cashes this summer or risks losing him for free in twelve months. Manchester United’s Victor Lindelof has faded into the background due to Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane. After a frustrating season, the 28-year-old is on the verge of leaving Man United this summer.

On his YouTube channel, Fabrizio Romano said that Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid had expressed an interest in acquiring Lindelof in January. Still, ten Hag refused to allow him to leave.” From what I understand, Erik Ten Hag will decide on two players at the end of the season. One is Victor Lindelof because, speaking with the Swedish national team, Lindelof said he wanted to play. In January, he had two possibilities – Inter and Atletico Madrid -but Lindelof decided to stay because Erik Ten Hag said no. But for the summer, Ten Hag has to determine and speak to Lindelof to decide on the future.”
In his column for Caught Offside, Romano wrote that the Red Devils turned down offers for Scott McTominayin in January this year. He wrote, “Midfielder and winger remain two priorities for Newcastle; I think they will be busy but also smart on the market as always. Scott McTominay remains a player they like, including Eddie Howe. However, Man United rejected the approach in January, and let’s see what they decide in the summer.”
The Scottish Midfielder struggled for opportunities with Manchester United this season and is no longer guaranteed regular football. With the Red Devils likely to move for a new midfielder this summer, the 26-year-old could become surplus to requirements. McTominay has appeared 32 times across all competitions for United this season, mainly from the bench, registering two goals and one assist. Manchester United will decide within the next few months.
