And United could enlist the services of Wout Weghorst against the Royals, if they manage to complete a loan deal for the Burnley forward in time.

But the Dutch international, currently on loan at Besiktas, won't be able to wear the number seven shirt if he does make the move to Old Trafford, and the Turkish giants have sent Erik ten Hag's side a clear message about a prospective deal.

Paul Ince is set to return to Manchester United when takes his Reading side to Old Trafford for round four.

Ince had a six-year spell at United between 1989 and 1995 as a player, before departing to join Inter Milan.

United, meanwhile, will hope Marcus Rashford can carry his top form into the tie - if selected by Erik ten Hag. He produced another superb performance in the 3-1 victory over Everton to help United into the fourth round.
