Mount could be out up to six weeks
The Daily Telegraph's famous reporter says that Munt suffered a hamstring injury in United's 0-2 loss to Tottenham Hotspur, which puts him out of action for 4-6 weeks at the very least, and that his absence will not only have an impact on United's squad, but also on their sale of McTominay.

The optimistic estimate is that Mount is out for 4 weeks, but a 4-week injury would also keep the £55million addition this summer out until September 19th. That would mean Munter would miss the game against Brighton and the first round of the Champions League group stage, as well as Saturday's game against Nottingham Forest and the game against Arsenal eight days later.

A four-week absence before Munt's injury improves could mean he misses a further four games, including league matches against Burnley and Crystal Palace, the third round of the League Cup and United's second Champions League group game.

Ten Hag wants to sign another midfielder before the transfer window closes on Friday, with United rumored to be linked with Fiorentina midfielder Amrabat and Bayern Munich midfielder Hrafenbech. But United are hoping to cash in on McTominay for funds, and not coincidentally Munter's injury could complicate plans to sell McTominay, who has lost his place in the pecking order under Ten Hagar's stewardship.

Newcastle United, Roma, West Ham United and Inter Milan were all very interested in McTominay at various stages this summer, but they have since moved on to other targets.

It remains to be seen whether United are willing to accept that McTominay will be forced to be sold for a low transfer fee, but the club are facing the challenge of raising funds through a sale to reinvest in the squad.
