Newcastle ace Sean Longstaff could be the next target for the Red Devils according to reports from England. The England midfielder enjoyed a breakthrough campaign last season and is considered as a future star.
The club is yet to make a midfield signing this summer and the Metro claims that United are ready to make a move for Longstaff.
Newcastle are demanding a transfer fee of £30 million for the defender and United are ready to pay the desired amount.
The Magpies are in a bit of disarray with the impending exit of manager Rafa Benitez and the uncertainty regarding the sale of the club.
This has weighed heavily in the mind of the 21-year-old midfielder and he is open to a switch to Manchester this summer.
Longstaff is not really the sort of player that United should be splashing such a huge fee for as they could get Morocco ace Hakim Ziyech from Ajax for a similar fee.
It could be that the club are looking to develop a British core group of players following the arrival of Daniel James and impending transfer of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
This transfer looks like one that has a 50% chance of completion. Manchester United have been active in the transfer window. Crystal Palace defender Wan-Bissaka made his long-awaited £50 million moves to the club on Saturday.
Meanwhile, for Newcastle the club continues to move in the wrong direction with former players such as Fabricio Coloccini speaking about the departure of manager Rafa Benitex.
Now about to lose another key player it could be a long season for the the Magpies next season.
