Scott McTominay is set to be ready for Manchester United’s trip to Vicarage Road this weekend after ‘recovering well’ from illness.
The player was forced to pull out of Scotland’s roster for the World Cup qualifiers against Denmark and Moldova.
Steve Clarke’s men won both matches in the Red Devils man’s absence but the club can ill-afford to be without him given their perilous situation, especially with Paul Pogba absent due to an injury for at least the next several weeks.
But Scott has suggested he’ll be available for the trip to the Hornets, saying he has ‘recovered well’ from his illness.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to be in charge for the upcoming trip, in spite of humiliating defeats to rivals Liverpool and Manchester City in recent weeks.
The 20-time English champions are sixth in the standings and have won just one of their last five games in the league.
Elsewhere, Real Madrid are not optimistic about their chances of signing Borussia Dortmund striker and Manchester United target Erling Braut Haaland, according to journalist Josep Pedrerol.
Writing on Twitter, the Spaniard said: “Real Madrid assumes that Haaland will play in England next year and they have it ruled out.”
