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

"So this kid who's played less games than a granny in a Vegas casino is being linked to Man United for £30m+ and he's still on our books?
....Shall I drive him down or is it your turn?" #nufc
Every player has a value so bids around £20/30M for either Longstaff, Perez or Schar they will be away— johnh (@gizbyker1) May 17, 2019
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.
