Premier Club Plot Renewed £30m Bid For Newcastle United Player



The Mirror’s Simon Mullock is reporting that Manchester United are going to test Newcastle United’s resolve with a £30m for Sean Longstaff.

The report states that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now made Sean Longstaff a priority for the Red Devils as he is hoping to build his team around the best young English players.

Manchester United are in the process of buying central defender Harry Maguire from Leicester City for a reported £80m and last month brought in right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace for £50m.

Matty and Sean– a future midfield duo

Newcastle United are unlikely to accept the bid at £30m as they have set the Wan-Bissaka fee as the benchmark for Longstaff.

The report also states that executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has stayed behind in Manchester to get the deals completed. Manchester United are currently on their pre-season tour of Australia and Asia.

We don’t think there is too much in this report as on Saturday, Sean looked just delighted to be playing for Newcastle. He seems to really like Steve Bruce and will also be harboring ambitions of partnering with his brother Matty in the Newcastle midfield.

    Well Sky Sports reckon the fee for Joelinton is £30M so the “Owner” is quids in. Just spent the Perez money but still needs to replace Perez.

    We need more players in first we still have a weaker squad that last season without letting Longstaff go. Money talks to ASH though.

    Toon KK too true mate. My fear is the crown jewels will be sold last week or even last day of the window. Longstaff, Dubravka, Schar and maybe even Lascelles. Why are we looking at a CB for £30M who can’t even get a regular spot in Burnley’s first team?

    wartongeordie, KBA = Keith Bishop Agencies, the PR firm that was majority owned by Mike Ashley and was founded by Ashley’s buddy Keith Bishop.

    Funny that he’s found the cash to buy Ashley out of the firm now. Wonder where he got that from? Couldn’t have been all that consultancy money he got from NUFC, was it?

    We’ve never sold one top player in the last 12 years who didn’t want to go.

    The only reason Carroll was sold for £35M was because we turned down bids of £15M and £20M from Spurs and £25M and £30M from Lpool.

    Lpool were then ttold £35M in cash or no deal and part of that was because Carroll was desperate to get the £80K a week from Lpool and hung around SJP with his agent all day on on the last day of the transfer window.

    Pardew and Llambias wanted to sell at £25M but Ashley refused and said he wasn’t going anywhere. He then refused £30M and gave in to Pardew and Llambias for £35M cash which Lpool got as part of the £50M sale of Torres to Chelsea.

    I got this info from Tiote’s agent who I knew quite well and he had no reason to spin a tale.

    Just about every single player in the world has a price that can’t be turned down.

    £50M for a young player with 9 Prem games in his locker might be a price for Longstaff.

    I defo don’t want him to go, but everyone thought AC was going to be a world beater, but he wasn’t, and both Lpool and WH got burnt.

    If Ashley sold Longstaff against his wishes just to balance the books that would be cause for uproar and I’d be first in the queue.

    Quotes from Andy Carroll about how and why his move to Liverpool came about

    https://www.goal.com/en-gb/news/2896/premier-league/2011/02/01/2333385/i-didnt-want-to-leave-newcastle-at-all-andy-carroll-claims

    “I’m gutted that I wasn’t wanted at my home team after everything I’ve done and progress I’ve made.

    “I didn’t want to leave at all. Make sure they know I didn’t want to leave.

    “The players, staff and fans were fantastic.”

    Bills-Son that depends on who you believe on Carroll, the player himself said in the Gaurdian he did not want to leave and was forced out:

    “Derek [Llambias, Newcastle’s managing director] asked me to hand in a transfer request, so I was pushed into a corner and had no choice,” Carroll said. “I wasn’t wanted by them and they made it clear they wanted the money.

    “Then I flew down in [owner Mike Ashley’s] helicopter. I didn’t want to leave. I’m gutted that I wasn’t wanted at my home team after everything I have done and the progress I have made.

    “I didn’t want to leave at all. Make sure they know I didn’t want to leave. The players, staff and fans were fantastic.”

    Carroll’s comments back up the content of texts he sent to friend and editor of the Toon Talk fanzine, Steve Wraith, as the transfer saga unfolded last night.

    Those players wanted to go, because they were told when they signed they’d be moved on to better clubs. The likes of cabaye, Sissoko and Wijnaldum would not have signed in the first place had they not been assured of a move down the line. Its been one of the biggest problems with Ashley’s reign.

    AC had only just got a new £30K contract and wanted a massive pay rise to stay.

    That request was turned down.

    AC, for the benefit, of the fans turned that round to say he wanted to stay but the club didn’t want him.

    Like it not, that is probably far nearer the truth.

    your making it up as you go a long rewriting history to suite your own agenda, Carroll was push out the door straight on to Ashley’s helicopter which has been well documented by several news sources,

    “I got this info from Tiote’s agent who I knew quite well” now who’s playing ITK card ?????

    And, I said earlier that Pardew and Llambias wanted to sell at £25M.

    If AC got whiff of that he is entitled to feel the club didn’t want him – I get that.

    My point is Ashley refused to sell at that price and Tiote’s agent told me he didn’t want to sell at all.

    That £25M bid was easily the equivalent of £75M now and, again, AC was entitled to ask for wage increase but the club were also entitled to stick to the contract he’d signed about three months earlier.

    When they refused, he said he wanted to go and that’s when Llambias asked him to put a transfer request in.

    Again, I’m only relating what I was told and whilst AC might have stayed for £70K/£80K a week he wasn’t staying for £30K.

    Take your pick how you want to read the situation.

    hibbit,

    Give up man.

    It was Tiote’s agent not Ashley.

    Agents talk to each other all the time because they do business together and tout each other’s players .

    I can also relate now that Chelsea and Spurs wanted Tiote after his first season and were told he wasn’t for sale but from memory I think Chelsea offered £15M and were turned down flat.

    Liverpool bought a Brazilian from Hoffenheim in 2015 for £29m which was a gamble but not unlike them to spend big on mere prospects. That kid was Roberto Firminio and he’s easily worth double that now. The same won’t happen with Joelinton as he’s coming into a weak af team but here’s hoping ??

    The caption for the Joelinton at SJP could’ve read:

    ‘It’s a pity your over twenty years too late: You could’ve been joining a club that played exciting football with the best and under Keegan or Bobby Robson. You could’ve been playing in Europe cheered on by passionate fans.

    ‘But now, you’re signing up to a club that’s been choked by a greedy owner who’s let one of the world’s best coaches go and brought in a less than adequate replacement who’ll put you in the shop window with a view to selling you for a profit. You’re an item son, not a human being’

    Bill’s son i actually believe you this once and think you’re probably not far off the mark. I wanted to stay and was asked to hand in a transfer request I’d tell them to píss off, that whole tell them I didnt want to go and they didn’t want me is a complete PR spin if you ask me. And not one person here would stay at Newcastle on 30k when they could get 80k at a bigger club, hometown club or not.

    Logically this is one time I agree completely with you bills. Because if Carroll wanted to really stay there is no way they’d be able to get rid of him. And if he did leave for money I don’t blame him at all, how could you, a young man offered nearly triple his pay at an even bigger club.
