“Best decision we made in years” – Lots of Man Utd fans glad they didn’t sign “average” 21 y/o

Manchester United were linked with a number of players over the course of the summer transfer window, but only three new signings were made by the end.

One man who was heavily touted over a move to Old Trafford, was Newcastle’s Sean Longstaff. The 21-year-old enjoyed a breakthrough campaign last season, making nine appearances in the Premier League under Rafa Benitez.

Reports had suggested United were very keen on signing him, and a swoop appeared to be in line with their approach to signing young, promising British-based players.

However, a deal seemed to fall down over the price the Magpies were quoting for the midfielder, and now, BBC Sport claim Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side opted to walk away after hearing about the £50m asking price.

Having heard the reason why the club failed to sign Longstaff in the summer, United fans flooded to Twitter to share their thoughts on the matter.

Some fans even remarked the news represented the “only good thing” they have heard in a while, and backed the club over their summer approach.
