Manchester United left stunned by Newcastle's £50m asking price for Sean Longstaff

Longstaff Woodward

The Magpies will be participating in the Premier League Asia Trophy as they face Wolverhampton Wanderers, Manchester City and West Ham United respectively.

Woodward was stunned to discover the Tyneside club's £50m asking price and made it clear it was well in excess of what United are prepared to pay.

Longstaff is a product of the Newcastle United academy and broke through the senior team in December a year ago, after having had two successful loan stints at Kilmarnock and Blackpool.

The 21-year-old enjoyed a breakout season last term, after arriving back from a full year on loan in League One with Blackpool.

Longstaff had hoped to be in place for the start of the tour - but a formal approach to Newcastle managing director Lee Charnley didn't come until last weekend.

Manchester United may be eager to make a bargain deal for the player but the Magpies look certain to hold out on bigger fee in the range of £50 million or so.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has turned his focus towards recruiting young, homegrown talents with potential this summer, as seen by the signings of Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Manchester United value the 21-year-old at closer to £20m and they are weighing up what they are willing to offer for the player.

Although United recognise they are operating in an inflated market and there is a premium on young British players, there is some concern that there is nearly an additional tax on players they are interested in signing.

Manchester United have also snapped up England Under-21 global Aaron Wan-Bissaka in a £50m deal from Premier League rivals Crystal Palace.
