Manchester United are interested in the transfer of Newcastle United’s Midfielder Sean Longstaff, according to the latest reports in Sky Sports.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking at a summer of rebuild. The Red Devils are looking to sign young, talented and homegrown players who we expect to develop into world-class players at some point of time.
With the departure of Ander Herrera Manchester United are pretty much forced to sign a Central Midfielder in this summer transfer window.
Longstaff broke into the first team at the St. James’ Park and has generally impressed the fans, pundits and his manager with some impressive performance in the middle of the park.
The young English Midfielder has scored 2 goals and provided an assist but it’s his technical skills and brilliant composure that has drawn a comparison to Michael Carrick.
Sean is relatively young and could still develop into a world class midfielder in the future if he continues his development at this rate, hence, Manchester United’s interested in him.
However, there are a few Red Devils fans who see this transfer news as a lack of ambition on our part and would like the club to aim higher than Sean Longstaff.
Here are few of the twitter reactions:
