‘I Feel Like Punching A Wall’ ‘Isn’t McSauce Better?’ United Supporters On Social Media Unhappy With Plans For £30m Bid

Manchester United will make a bid for Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff before the end of the transfer window, according to reports in the local media.

The Red Devils are said to be very interested in securing the 21-year-old, with a bid of £30m expected before August 8th.

Fans on Twitter are less than enthusiastic with the latest links with Longstaff:

A few think he could be a good signing:

The midfielder is hardly a household name and while supporters shouldn’t always expect to sign big-name players, you have to question what the Newcastle star could add to the squad.

United already have a young midfielder in Scott McTominay who looks a real prospect, while James Garner was impressive during his limited minutes during pre-season.

A replacement for Ander Herrera is required, but many fans will be questioning why the club are not considering more experienced alternatives.

Longstaff has played just nine Premier League games, and with reports that Newcastle may demand as much as £50m, you would have to question the reasoning behind such a move.
