Manchester United are set to make a bid for Newcastle United player Sean Longstaff in the next 48 hours, according to the latest reports.
The departure of Ander Herrera means that Manchester United have no choice but to bring in a Central Midfielder in the summer transfer window.
Sean Longstaff has been one of the few names who has been linked to us in the last few weeks, but the recent reports hints that our interest in the Newcastle youngster is indeed a concrete one.
The 21-year-old Englishman made 12 appearance for the Geordies last season but the Midfielder impressed the Newcastle faithfuls and critics with his brilliant technique, athleticism and assured performances in the middle of the park.
There’s a view among the Man United boardroom that Sean Longstaff can go on to become an English International in the near future and signing the youngster in this summer window could be a good business for the club.
Newcastle United, of course, doesn’t want to get rid of their Star youngster but it has been reported that Longstaff’s head has been turned by the Manchester United’s interest and he would love the idea of playing at the Old Trafford next season.
Given the fact that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward have changed their transfer strategy by focusing on young and talented players instead of investing big money on the big stars, do you think it is a good idea to sign Sean Longstaff in the transfer window?
