Newcastle United fans are concerned that Sean Longstaff will leave to join Manchester United.

According to Sky Sports, the Red Devils want to buy the Newcastle youngster, who has enjoyed a fine breakthrough season.

 

Longstaff came into Newcastle’s first-team after injury had struck several of their more senior central midfielders, and he looked perfectly at home in the Premier League.

Manchester United are now said to be targeting him, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plots a summer rebuild.

And Newcastle fans fear that they will have little chance of hanging on to Longstaff if the Red Devils’ interest in real.

If Longstaff was to move to Old Trafford he would be in competition with the likes of Andreas Pereira, Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic for a first-team place.
