Man United ready to bid for Sean Longstaff, £25m should seal deal: report

Over the last five or so months, Manchester United have lost both Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera. The Red Devils need to bring in at least one midfield reinforcement as a result.

According to the Evening Standard, the player United are eyeing is Newcastle United’s Sean Longstaff.

Apparently, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer feels the talented 21-year-old will ‘develop into a top-class all-round midfielder’, identifying Longstaff as ‘one of a host of emerging British talents’ who the Baby Faced Assassin wants to bring to Old Trafford during this transfer window.

What’s surprising to me is that the Evening Standard say a bid of around £25million would be enough to seal the deal. For such a promising young player, this seems like an absolute bargain.

Longstaff shown a real maturity beyond his years in high-pressure situations during the 2018/19 campaign, and if it wasn’t for the injury he suffered, I believe he’d have more of a well-known reputation. The fact that he’s now sitting out on the treatment table may actually, weirdly, play into the Red Devils’ hands.

United are desperate for a new holding midfielder. I liken Longstaff to Michael Carrick in terms of playing style, and I feel that from day one, the 21-year-old would be ready to play week-in-week-out football for the Reds. It seems like an absolute no-brainer.
