BREAKING: Manchester United suffer Scott McTominay injury blow

The 24-year-old started in the opening weekend thrashing of Leeds United, despite one substitute appearance in pre-season, and was named as a substitute at Southampton on Sunday due to a troublesome groin injury.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still sent McTominay on in the 76th minute with the game deadlocked and the Scotland international was omitted from national team coach Steve Clarke’s squad for their World Cup qualifiers against Denmark, Austria and Moldova next month.

United said in a statement: “Scott has undergone surgery for an ongoing groin injury that was causing significant pain when playing.

“Having tried all other treatment options in pre-season, surgery was deemed necessary to resolve the issue.

“We hope to have him back soon.”

The absence of McTominay will fuel speculation over a possible late move for a midfielder now United have been reduced to five options in that department.

Following this heart breaking news, should Manchester United sign a new midfielder?
