Manchester United transfer news: Red Devils ‘interested’ in promising Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff after breakthrough season

Sky Sports claim the 21-year-old is being looked at by the Red Devils following his breakthrough season at St James’ Park with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the United manager, keen on adding young homegrown players to his squad.

Longstaff has made just 13 appearances for the Magpies, with his Premier League debut coming as recently as Boxing Day 2018.

However, he started eight top flight matches from the turn of the year until March, when his progression was curtailed by a knee ligament injury which forced the youngster to miss the final nine matches of the campaign.

Longstaff was earning rave reviews during his time on the pitch and was being heralded as a star of the future, and United appear to have taken notice of his performances.
