MAN UTD TARGETS NEWCASTLE’S SEAN LONGSTAFF

Manchester United are set to continue their summer investment in youth by trying to sign Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to reshape a squad that tailed off badly after an excellent start under the Norwegian last season.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is expected to complete his £50m move from Crystal Palace after Thursday’s medical.

United signed 21-year-old Daniel James from Swansea earlier this month.

It is understood Solskjaer is also keen on Longstaff, another 21-year-old, who impressed at St James’ Park after making his debut in December 2018, only to have his season curtailed by a knee injury.

In pursuing a policy of trying to sign younger players who can develop at Old Trafford, Solskjaer believes he is following a policy that proved successful under Sir Alex Ferguson, with the former striker himself an example after he arrived as a relatively unknown 23-year-old from Molde in 1996.
