Manchester United centre-back Harry Maguire has admitted that he 'doesn't know' if he will be fit for Saturday's FA Cup final against Manchester City.

The 31-year-old missed Man United's last four Premier League matches of the 2023-24 campaign due to a muscular problem.

Red Devils head coach Erik ten Hag said that Maguire had "a fair chance" of being available for the clash with Man City when he addressed the media ahead of last weekend's game at Brighton & Hove Albion.

However, Maguire has admitted that he is unsure whether he will pass a fitness test to be able to be named in the squad for the game with Pep Guardiola's side.

"Obviously it's disappointing and a frustrating time to get injured," Maguire told talkSPORT.

Maguire remains a major doubt for FA Cup final

"I still don't know if I'm going to be fit. It's going to be a late one. I'm hoping to be fit for the squad for the FA Cup final but it will be touch and go."

Maguire was heavily linked with a move away from Man United last summer, with West Ham United believed to have had an offer accepted for the England international.

However, he chose to remain at Old Trafford and battle for his spot, and the ex-Sheffield United youngster managed to regain the trust of Ten Hag over the course of the season.

Maguire has had his fair share of fitness issues this term, but he has made 31 appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals and registering two assists in the process.

Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez were Man United's first-choice centre-backs last season, but the former is leaving on a free transfer at the end of June, while the latter has spent most of the campaign injured.

Who else could be missing for Man United on Saturday?

Mason Mount has been pictured back in training for Man United, suggesting that the Englishman could be available for the clash with Man City.

Victor Lindelof, who has been out since the end of March, was not involved in Sunday's game at Brighton, but he is also in training and could make the squad for the final.

Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Varane and Martinez are all available following recent fitness problems, but Tyrell Malacia is definitely out due to a long-term knee problem.

Luke Shaw is also highly unlikely to feature due to a muscular issue, which could yet rule him out of representing England at this summer's European Championship.

Anthony Martial is now fit after recovering from a groin injury, but the Frenchman is set to leave on a free transfer next month and is not expected to be in the squad this weekend. body check tags ::
