Sky Sports reveal NUFC’s asking price for Sean Longstaff – Man Utd set to make bid

According to Sky Sports, Newcastle United want MORE than £50m for Sean Longstaff this summer.

This comes after Sky revealed tonight that Man Utd are now ‘preparing a bid’ for the midfielder, but they insist that we have no intention of considering any bids unless an offer in excess of £50m arrives.

Here’s a snippet from Sky Sports’ latest piece:

Manchester United are preparing a bid for Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff, according to Sky sources.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already signed two home-grown youngsters in Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bisaaka and says the club are still working on more summer transfers.

Longstaff caught Solskjaer’s eye last season after breaking into the Newcastle first team. The 21-year-old made 13 appearances, nine in the Premier League, before a knee ligament injury in March brought a premature end to his campaign.

However, Newcastle insist Longstaff is not for sale and Sky Sports Newshas been told he will cost Manchester United more than the £50m they spent on Wan-Bissaka.

I hope I’m wrong, but I’d be surprised if Mike Ashley rejected any offers around £30m or more.

We should keep him at all costs – especially now the club has been severely depleted by the loss of Rafa, Rondon, Perez and Diame – but you can’t help but every player has a price in Mike Ashley’s world; especially one who has only made 9 Premier League starts to date.

Let’s hope their offer is way below our alleged ‘asking price’ and they turn their attentions elsewhere.
