Dimitar Berbatov wants Scott McTominay to be restored to Manchester United’s team and thinks the Red Devils must sign a new centre-back this summer.

United crashed out of the Europa League on Sunday at the hands of Sevilla and it is the third semi-final this season Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side has lost.

Solskjaer was coy about United’s transfer plans after the disappointing 2-1 defeat, but Berbatov insists a new defender is needed and cannot understand why McTominay was dropped.

‘The defeat showed that United need to strengthen their squad this summer,’ Berbatov told Betfair.

‘They need a centre-back for sure. Midfield and up front seems to be OK. Paul Pogba looks likely to stay and I would like to see Scott McTominay get back in the team.

‘But United need more depth, Ole made his first substitution very late last night when things weren’t going well.

‘It does show he trusts his first eleven a lot, but maybe it shows he doesn’t trust his bench so much.

‘There will be lots of games next season, and they need to have the squad to be ready.

‘I find McTominay’s situation really strange. He is fit and ready, he got his contract extension, but he doesn’t play.

‘Is it because Matic and Fred play really well? I am not sure, but I like him a lot, so hopefully he can pick up the pace next season and get back into the team.’
