The transfer window may have been shut in the Premier league, the value of player’s may not necessarily drop.
Manchester United may have to pay an extra £50MILLION to sign their transfer prime target Sean Longstaff next season, according to reports.
United attempted to sign the young English midfielder but his £50m valuation stood in the way of any deal for him.
The youngster, who featured in only eight league games for the Magpies last season, left a huge impression on his opponent.
He has been compared with Manchester United legend Michael Carrick, this is because of his ability to dictate play and boss the middle.
According to the Daily Mail, the Red Devils would have to pay £70 million to sign the star midfielder next summer, against a £20m deal that would have been enough to prise him from ST James’ Park this summer.
Longstaff must maintain a level of performance to get United to retain their interest in him.
Manchester United met the valuations of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire, which means they didn’t Longstaff was high enough to meet his valuation.
