Manchester United are yet to table an official offer to sign Sean Longstaff from Newcastle United this summer, according to reports in the British media.

Chronicle Live is reporting that Longstaff is due to report back for pre-season training as normal next week with the Magpies despite talk of a possible move to Old Trafford.

Longstaff is still getting back to full fitness following a knee injury and the report says that he will not be rushed into any intense training until he is deemed ready.

The same story says that Manchester United do still “retain a strong interest” in signing Longstaff this summer but they have not yet made an official bid to land him.

It is claimed in the same article that Manchester United have been focused on tying up deals to land Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

However, it is also suggested that the Red Devils could switch their focus to Longstaff next.

The 21-year-old scored one goal in nine Premier League appearances for the Magpies last season.

Manchester United are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to add to their squad ahead of next season.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League last term.
