Manchester United are interested in a potential deal to sign Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Manchester United are contemplating a surprise swoop to sign the 21-year-old.

The same article states that the 20-time English champions could bring in Longstaff to help replace out of contract Ander Herrera at Old Trafford.

According to the same story, Longstaff is on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s wish list of summer targets as the Manchester United boss looks to revamp his squad.

The Metro report goes on to say that Manchester United have held initial discussions surrounding Longstaff with their Premier League rivals Newcastle.

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez gave Longstaff his debut in a 4-0 loss to Liverpool FC at Anfield back in December.

The Magpies talent won the penalty that helped Newcastle ease to a 2-1 victory over Premier League champions Manchester City at St James’ Park.

Longstaff netted his first goal for the Magpies in a 2-0 victory over Burnley at the end of February.

The promising midfielder saw his breakthrough season in the Premier League come to an end when he suffered a knee injury in March.

Longstaff finished the season with two goals in 11 games in all competitions.
