Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is clearly a big fan of Sean Longstaff.
The midfielder was a target for Manchester United in the summer, and now ESPN report that the Red Devils are interested again this January.
Manchester United are another club with injury woes after the hectic Christmas period, which has reportedly forced them to look for a new midfielder this month.
Newcastle valued Longstaff at £50 million last summer, which was enough to put Ole and co off a move. But they’re back again, despite a really disappointing start to the season.
He hasn’t been himself since his injury, and has actually been the less impressive Longstaff, with younger brother Matty scoring twice against Manchester United this season.
Fans at Old Trafford didn’t really want Sean in the summer, and it seems like they definitely don’t want him now.
Manchester United fans clearly don’t want to sign Longstaff
If Ole wants Longstaff in January he should be sacked on the spot

The Sean Longstaff rumours are back and so is my depression. He might not even be the better Longstaff brother…

Sean Longstaff can’t even get into the Newcastle starting X1 but Man Utd still want to buy him 💁🏼♂️ #mufc

Sean Longstaff is really our number one midfield target. Whoever is responsible for this needs sacking immediately. #MUFC

My club has watched Matty longstaff outshine Sean Longstaff right infront of their eyes TWICE. Yet we still want to sign Sean Longstaff. Ole carrick and mckenna are the most dangerous trio in the world pic.twitter.com/wOvQsJtS0o

What do our scouts see in Sean Longstaff?
He can’t even get into the Newcastle team.
I’d probably take him at this point purely because we have to make signings in midfield but I’d much rather we sign someone else.

Who are we actually Signing in January, Don’t want to hear none of this Longstaff bs either, Sean isn’t even the best Longstaff don’t want him near my Club.

Not good enough for ball boys let alone to play for MU, but we do employ Jesse Lingard and Luke Shaw
