Newcastle hold talks with Manchester United over midfielder Sean Longstaff

The Red Devils have been linked with a swoop for months now.

Manchester United and Newcastle United have now held talks over the transfer of midfielder Sean Longstaff, according to Sky Sports News.

The Red Devils’ interest in the Englishman has been a theme of the summer and the report says that talks have now begun at the top level of the two clubs over a move.

Newcastle’s stance is apparently that they don’t want to lose Longstaff at any cost, but few supporters will have any faith they’ll show a backbone or refuse a bumper bid if one comes in.

 

The report says that a formal bid is yet to be made by the Europa League club, which does seem slightly odd given how protracted their interest has been.

In a summer where Rafa Benitez and Ayoze Perez have already left Newcastle and the club is even more of a shambles, few would blame Longstaff if he wanted to get out.

That said, he is a local boy who may realise he needs a full season in the top flight to prove himself as well as the fact Manchester United have wrecked many a players’ reputation in recent times.

Keeping Longstaff would be a rare chink of life in a summer which has been nothing short of dire, but if United come forward with the kind of money they threw at Aaron Wan-Bissaka, it would not be a surprise to see Newcastle cave.
