Newcastle have been linked with a host of Manchester United players since the takeover.
It is all change at Old Trafford, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer getting the sack on Sunday.
That has an impact on those players who might move to Newcastle in January, as per a report by Eurosport.
The good news
The report claims that Solskjaer’s exit will have no impact on the availability of Henderson or Jones.
Jones has not played any football since January 2020 and he needs to go somewhere he will get games.
That looks to be the case regardless of the identity of the new manager.
Henderson will also apparently be allowed to leave on loan. That makes sense given the form of David de Gea this season.
It cannot be ruled out that a new manager would make Henderson his number one over de Gea but it would be a huge call at a time when there are plenty of other far more pressing issues in the side.
The bad news
The report suggests that Solskjaer’s sacking has handed Lingard and van de Beek fresh starts at United.
Both have performed well this season when they have come on as substitutes and their lack of involvement has been baffling.
That means that a new manager is more likely to pick them, especially with Paul Pogba out injured – potentially until the New Year.
Lingard faces a huge few weeks. His contract is expiring at the end of the season and he may well need to decide whether to commit his future to the club without knowing who the long term manager will be.
