Man Utd fans underwhelmed by interest in Newcastle’s Sean Longstaff
Manchester United supporters are not exactly thrilled by the first big transfer rumour of the summer.
The Red Devils are reportedly keen on signing Newcastle United youngster Sean Longstaff. Sky Sports claims the 21-year-old is a target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Norwegian boss is said to be keen to add young, home-grown talent to his squad before the start of the 2019/20 campaign and is interested in midfielder Longstaff.
Newcastle-born Longstaff has enjoyed a breakthrough season at his hometown club. He has made 11 appearances and scored two goals for Rafa Benitez’s side.
He previously spent time on loan at Kilmarnock and Blackpool.
But that pedigree has not captured the imagination of United fans on social media. Here’s how some of the clubs supporters reacted to the Longstaff transfer rumour.

I’m a bit confused about our transfer targets ngl. We’re interested in a lot of honest hardworking players but what about their actual quality. Having said that I have enjoyed watching Longstaff but I’m sure he had a quite serious injury this season. Has a good shot on him though

A few years back, we were trying to sign Sergio Ramos and Gareth Bale. Now we’re after the likes of Sean Longstaff? No disrespect but what is happening to this club? #mufc

Rumours are popping up that United are pursuing Sean Longstaff. Sounds like something we'd do at this point but here's to hoping it's a load of rubbish. What do you Reds make of Longstaff as a potential signing?

Me pretending I’m absolutely fine with Manchester United being linked with Daniel James and Sean Longstaff when Liverpool and City are probably the 2 best teams on the planet right now pic.twitter.com/D3rrDZnbjO

If you support the signings of Daniel James and Sean Longstaff then you're just a tool.
You'll happily let Solskjaer ruin the club just because you want to support the manager. #MUFC
