Newcastle fans react to reported Sean Longstaff £50m asking price

The supporters would not be surprised if the midfielder was sold.

Newcastle value midfielder Sean Longstaff at £50 million amid interest from Manchester United, according to both the Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mirror.

Quite why it has taken so long to reach this point when United have been credited with an interest in the midfielder for months is a mystery.

But the Magpies have reportedly slapped the high asking price on the Englishman and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are ready to walk away from the deal.

That said, many Newcastle fans do not trust Mike Ashley not to sell a player who is one of the few bright sparks remaining at the club these days, and for less than £50 million as well.

Such is the level of distrust among the fans towards Ashley, they fully expect Longstaff to leave this summer – with one citing when another local boy, Andy Carroll, was deemed not for sale before moving to Liverpool.

The consensus is that everything is for sale at Newcastle these days under Ashley and while he remains in charge, there’s every chance that Longstaff will be wearing red and not black and white when the new season kicks off.
