McTominay unconcerned by Man Utd buying new midfielder

Scott McTominay says he won't care if Manchester United sign another midfielder this summer.

The Red Devils are hoping to sign at least one midfielder to replace Ander Herrera, who joined PSG this month.

But McTominay insists he will work hard to keep his place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, even if the likes of Sean Longstaff or Bruno Fernandes arrive at Old Trafford.

He said: "Regardless of what other signings come in or who plays where, you have to back yourself to be a Man United player. That's one thing that I've done over the last two years, I've always backed myself.

"I've tried to train hard and I've always wanted to do extra things to try to give me that one percent difference.

"When it comes to crucial times in big games like Barcelona or PSG in the Champions League, it's important that you're ready for them.

"The main thing for me is to be ready. Mentally, physically, everything. I need to be ready whenever I'm needed and when I'm asked."
