Rumour that United have struck a deal with Longstaff from Newcastle

Has this got any truth behind it?

{Ed002's Note - You know that there is interest and there have been talks.}

We will probably be priced out of a move.

After OGS’s comments about paying the right price for players - possibly echoing Woodward/ Judge’s own thoughts - it wouldn’t surprise me if we left all transfer business to the last minute and even ended up getting no one. We’re waiting for Pogba/ Kukaku desks to be sorted and there looks to be a stasis in the meantime - and these sagas will probably drag on. Then there’s the inflated fees that United are always quoted so, what with not wanting to pay inflated fees BUT with all other issues going on as well, just seems like it’s all a bit squeaky bum at the moment. Thus, though I really hope tho he get sorted and the right players come in while the wrong players move out, it really can’t be easy for United in the transfer market at the moment.

And today "United are put off by the 50m price tag" news. I like him very much, but c'mon 50m.

50 million is a joke. We have a few youngsters now who could make the 1st team. time we looked at a couple of players with good footballing experience, to help the young one's reach their potential.
Can't win anything with youngsters.
Just ask Alan Hansen.

the line that shines out to me "it wouldn’t surprise me if we left all transfer business to the last minute and even ended up getting no one" I'm guessing we've done our business already. The msm are doing their bit for our owners / woodwards ego linking us to all and sundry, but I can see a backline of shaw smalling jones and young next season expecting them to have developed a footballing brain over the last month.

'£50 million' is just the new '£30 million'. I wouldn't worry about what the newspapers are saying. No way we'll be paying that money for Longstaff.

Wan Bissaka will be a bit annoyed if he's bought for 50m and doesn't feature in our backline.

just heard from a customer (we are not far from sjp) that talks are ongoing for longstaff and that they will progress further after new manager is appointed by ashley and that newcastle valuation is reportedly high as they are interested in taking rojo as part of the deal.
I stress its just a rumour but how good would that be!

Cookyman if we can sign Longstaff AND get rid of Rojo at the same time, well that would be a great bit of business!

Wallace, congratulations mate you won the most pessimistic negative post of the day award. How you read that from Ole’s comments God only knows. The Ed has said where the interest lies and we will look to get players for the right price, I don’t really understand the problem.

Really odd fixation with price of players on here. None of us have any grasp or reference points as to what these numbers actually mean except they sound big.

If Longstaff has been identified as a the next great thing, and if he comes in a runs our midfield for 10 years, what has the fee got to do with us. Leave that to the accounts and enjoy our rebuild.

Longstaff in and Rojo out will probably be our best exchange deal ever.

Wazza - just hope the guys info was correct . Saying that there was a rumour Roma were looking at taking lascelles off the geordies so they could be in for a cb. Still a month to go yet so fingers crossed.

My point was that United can’t be finding it easy in the transfer market because of multiple factors.

So you think they are finding it easy and everything going to plan?

No I don’t think any club finds it easy these days, prices are inflated and not many English clubs need the money.

I'll piggy back that useless injury prone reckless red card awaiting squad clogging wage drain up there myself.
