The Guardian Reports Longstaff On Verge Of Exit In Article About Steve Bruce

The following tweet has lit a bit of a firestorm on Twitter as now many accounts are reporting that Sean Longstaff is leaving Newcastle imminently.

We looked at the Guardian report on this breaking news but it was an afterthought in an article about Steve Bruce’s pending announcement as the next Newcastle manager.

This is what Paul Wilson writes in the second to last paragraph of an article titled “Steve Bruce close to taking Newcastle job after asking to hold talks”.

Newcastle spent most of last season in the bottom third of the Premier League, eventually saved by Benítez’s organisational ability and goals from Ayoze Pérez and Salomón Rondón, though all three have left along with the out-of-contract midfielder Mohamed Diamé. No players have been signed, and Newcastle are on the verge of parting with the midfield prospect Sean Longstaff to Manchester United.

There is only one mention of Sean Longstaff’s name in the entire article and it is that “Newcastle are on the verge of parting with the midfield prospect Sean Longstaff to Manchester United”.

That is the only reference to Sean Longstaff. The entire article is about Steve Bruce and Sam Allardyce. We would have thought this news would have warranted its own article.

This is after reports yesterday from Sky Sports that Sean Longstaff was categorically not for sale.

There was also a report in the Manchester Evening News that Sean Longstaff was behind other midfielders at the moment.

With the information available to us, we are going to err on the side of being positive on this one and hope that Longstaff remains at the club. It would just break the laws of physics for Steve Bruce to come in as Sean Longstaff exits for Manchester United.
