Sky totally contradict themselves in new piece on Sean Longstaff’s potential Man Utd move

I was re-reading Sky Sports’ latest piece on Sean Longstaff’s future and potential move to Man Utd, and one line in particular made absolutely no sense.

According to ‘Sky sources’, Newcastle have insisted that Longstaff is ‘NOT for sale’, yet, in the same breath, Sky claim that Manchester United have been told they’ll have to pay ‘more than £50m’ if they want him.

So, make your mind up Sky/NUFC – Is he not for sale, or is he anyone’s if someone comes along and pays huge money? Considering Mike Ashley remains in charge, you can’t help but fear it’s the latter!

Here’s a snippet from Sky’s contradictory new piece on the 21-year-old’s future:

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.

The report states that Man Utd are now ‘preparing a bid’ (I swear we’ve been told this for weeks?), so our response to any opening offer should give us a good idea if he really is ‘not for sale’ or their’s for £50m.

Let’s hope we don’t have a repeat of the Andy Carroll saga and that Longstaff is at least one of few top talents that remain at St James’ Park this summer.

  1. Olly – every player is for sale if the money is right.

    We saw that with Andy Carroll.

    There’s no contradiction fromSky, the contradiction is from the club.

    I take your point here, but surely it’s Sky’s job to consolidate what the club are saying here?

    Sorry, but you can’t take ‘NOT for sale’ and ‘available at £50m plus’. They’re two totally different stances. They must ask the club which one it is (although we all know the answer to that question!).
