Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff has emerged as a top target for Manchester United in recent weeks but the Red Devils might find it hard to secure his signing.
Manchester United will definitely sign a new midfielder in the wake of the exit of Ander Herrera and young English player Sean Longstaff is their top target in the quest to replace the aforementioned Spaniard this summer.
Ander Herrera is on the verge of joining French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) on a four-year deal and as a free agent.
Sean Longstaff enjoyed a breakthrough season at Newcastle United until he suffered a season-ending injury.
The 21-year-old made nine appearances in the Premier League before his injury and it was more than enough to convince Manchester United that the £25m-rated Newcastle United Academy player will be a perfect fit for the Old Trafford outfit.
The player has been thoroughly scouted by Manchester United and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is more than convinced about his quality but signing him is not automatically guaranteed.
According to the Chronicle Live, Manchester United will be able to sign Sean Longstaff if current boss Rafael Benitez leave the club this summer.
The Spanish tactician has the final say on both incomings and outgoings at Newcastle United until June 30 when his contract expires.
