Manchester United on the verge of completing third summer signing from Premier League rivals

Manchester United are reportedly on the verge of completing their third signing of the summer transfer window with midfielder Sean Longstaff tipped to join them from Newcastle United.

The 21-year-old has been identified as one of the prime targets for the club this term, considering he fits into the manager’s requirement for young British players with the hunger to succeed.

According to The Guardian, the Magpies are likely to announce a new head coach in a short while with Sheffield Wednesday boss Steve Bruce permitted to discuss terms with the club.

In the same report, it is indicated that the Tyneside outfit are on the verge of parting ways with club graduate Longstaff, who appears set to join Manchester United.

A previous report from Sky Sports News indicated that the Magpies may demand in upwards of £50m for the midfielder after witnessing United’s recent purchase of Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace.

However, it appears that the Tyneside outfit may have agreed on a much lesser package for the midfielder, considering United have shown the reluctance to pay over the odds for any target this summer.

Longstaff, who has eight Premier League starts to his name, could become the club’s third signing of the transfer window. He would also be the third straight British recruit after Daniel James and Wan-Bissaka.
