Report – Sean Longstaff Told He Is Not Top Priority For Red Devils

The Manchester Evening News has an interesting report about Manchester United’s transfer tactics.

What is of interest to Newcastle fans comes late in the article and mentions Sean Longstaff.

This is what Samuel Luckhurst writes in the Manchester Evening News:

What compounds United’s market strategy is their coldness. Multiple agency sources have told the MEN United sometimes can make a target feel undervalued via a negotiating tactic; whereby they suggest the player is on a shortlist of prospective signings, rather than their first choice.

“It’s one of their failings,” a source who has dealt with United told the MEN. Longstaff’s representatives were told there were ‘a few ahead of him’ regarding the club’s efforts to sign a central midfielder. United have still not signed a central midfielder.

This is interesting news and for a player, like Longstaff, who is torn about leaving his club, it could be a bit off-putting.

These are types of tactics we would expect from the Newcastle Hierarchy and not a club like Manchester United.

This is a little extra positive news on the Longstaff front. Yesterday, Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol sent out the following tweet on Sean Longstaff.

We will take all the postives we can get at the moment as we prepare ourselves for a season of survival.

    Next 24 hours is more than critical. No manager to take pre season. No new owner. No signings. No hope.

    Just talking to an old guy in our village who to be fair is more into his rugby but keeps an eye out for the mags. I said ”from Rafa to Steve bl–dy Bruce” and he said ”who?” I said ”Exactly”

    What Ash has never realised that apart from being a giant billboard for SD, his blueprint for buying in youngsters to in future sell off at huge profit will never work under a Pardew / Bruce / Allardyce / Moyes prototype. We’ve just klled the golden goose in that regard. Imagine for an example any of those making Haydyn into a 20M player.

    All the bolt ons will always scupper a sale sadly. Rafa gone, no sale, Bruce in the arrivals lounge. Why always us!!!!
