“He is everything you would want in a player”

Published

Manchester United may have suffered a set-back in their quest to sign Sean Longstaff after Newcastle boss revealed his team to build his team around the rising star,.

United are in dire need of a midfield signing and Longstaff has appeared as their most preferred target.

The Red Devils released Ander Hererra as a free agent this summer and they are looking to sign a midfielder in his stead.

Longstaff started his career with the Magpies and after two loan spells at  Scottish Premiership club Kilmarnock and Blackpool, the 21-year-old midfielder rejoined his side last season.

He featured in only eight league games for his side last season before a knee injury scuppered his season.

The Red Devils had entered negotiations for the player but his £50m valuation has stood headlong in the way of any deal.

United were hoping to reach a £20 million agreement to sign him but despite the talks being protracted, they are hoping to reach an agreement for him.

But now, Newcastle new boss, Steve Bruce has reiterated his desire to keep the player.

“He’s a player we want to keep, he’s had a remarkable rise,” he told the Newcastle Chronicle.

“He is everything you would want in a player, big and athletic and he handles the ball well.

“We’ve got to be mindful of the fact he’s had a nasty injury, we’ve got to nurture him through pre-season so he is ready for Arsenal.

“He’s the type of player you want to build your team around, I’ve only seen him for a day, but he has had an unbelievable rise,”

“Very much reminds me of a Michael Carrick. I’m not aware that he’s going to United, I’m not aware of that at all.”‘

United have signed only two players his summer but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been open about his desire to add more players before the close of the window.

The signing of a centre-back and a midfielder remains the priority of the club.

Manchester United are expected to be in contention for Juventus defender Merih Demiral when the transfer window reopens in January.

The Premier League giants have 12 conceded goals, and Solskjaer is set to make some changes to the list of defenders at his disposal.

According to Italian media Tuttosport (via Football-Italia), the Norwegian tactician has set his eyes on the Turkish defender with a view of luring him to the Theatre of Dreams in the winter.

However, Solskjaer will need to contend with Arsenal manager Unai Emery in the race for the 20-year-old. It is believed that the Gunners manager is impressed with the report he got from his scouts who monitored the youngster’s performance against Iceland on Thursday.

The under-fire Arsenal manager has seen his defenders conceded 17 goals in 12 Premier League matches this season, a record which has led to fans displeasure.

The Spaniard is equally linked with a move for Demiral’s services as part of his plans to improve his defence in the second half of the campaign.

Demiral is finding regular game-time too hard to get under Sarri who prefers Leonardo Bonucci, Danielle Rugani and Matthijs de Ligt.
