All the latest news surrounding Newcastle United ahead of their clash with Manchester United.

Newcastle United return to action on Sunday with the international break now over and done with.

The Magpies head into the final stretch locked in a battle for a top four spot, and they face direct rivals Manchester United on Sunday. A win would see Eddie Howe’s men move level on points with the Red Devils, but a defeat could make the top four picture look very different, with Liverpool and Tottenham looking to take their destinty into their own hands.

As Newcastle and Man Utd put the final touches on their preparations, we have rounded up all the latest news surrounding St James’ Park.

Isak praise

Newcastle striker Alexander Isak has been praised by Alan Shearer amid his impressive form over recent weeks.

“The manager can’t leave him out now,” Shearer said. “Not with the form he’s in, the quality he’s shown, the goals he’s scored and how dangerous he looks. The Forest performance really demonstrated what he’s all about.”

Isak was the Magpies’ record signing in the summer, but he has had injury issues at times. He will now look to continue his scoring form to aid his side’s bid to land a top four spot this season.

McTominay latest

Newcastle continue to be linked with a move for Man Utd star Scott McTominay. The midfielder could well leave Old Trafford this summer, and Howe is said to be particularly interested.

“With regards to McTominay, I’m sure Man United have not fixed any kind of price at this stage,” Fabrizio Romano has told CaughtOffside of the situation.

“In January they rejected all the approaches for McTominay and now Ten Hag wants the squad to be 100% focused on the final two months of the season. Yes, Newcastle remain interested but they are not aware of the midfielder’s price tag… yet.”
