Man United could bid for Sean Longstaff, no approach made as of yet: report

I think we all know that Manchester United need a big summer transfer window. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer simply has to be backed in the market if he’s to stand any chance at seeing out the season.

The area which I feel needs upgrading is midfield. Names aplenty have been linked, we covered a story from Portugal, namely Correio da Manha in which it was suggested that United were to hold talks with Bruno Fernandes’ agent this week.

Today, The Telegraph back up that interest in Fernandes. They say that United have been asked to keep informed in regards to the 24-year-old’s situation – who is attracting some serious interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

Mauricio Pochettino’s interest is so strong that United could be prompted into making their move for the Portuguese midfielder – although right now, United’s immediate priority is sealing a deal for Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Apparently, their negotiations with Crystal Palace are ‘protracted’ with the Red Devils hoping that the move would have been completed already but obviously, that’s not the case.

What I found most intriguing about the article was that Sean Longstaff’s name appeared. The article states that United ‘could’ bid for the 21-year-old midfielder, although as of yet no official approach has been made.

The Newcastle central-midfield player is somewhat of a wildcard name. In my opinion, Longstaff is the back-up option should the Fernandes deal fall through. For me, the Reds could do a whole lot worse than Longstaff, who was seriously impressive in a game against Manchester City before the turn of the year.
