Longstaff was heavily linked with moving to Old Trafford in the summer, after impressing in his first season in the Premier League with the Magpies last season, and the club reportedly wanted £50 million for the 22-year-old.
That valuation was never met by United, who had seen Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera leave in the previous six months.
The midfielder hasn’t started for Steve Bruce since the 4-1 loss to United and he has only started nine league games for the club this season.
Can moved to Italy in 2018 on a free transfer, after four years impressing at Liverpool, but his move to the Allianz Stadium hasn’t gone well at all and he’s found himself out of the team for much of the season.
The German midfielder wanted to leave the Old Lady in the summer but was told he would play a part in the team so stayed, only to be kept out of the Champions League squad and barely feature since.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer make a move for the German midfielder Emre Can to bring him to Old Trafford to strengthen his midfield.
Jesse Lingard has been ask to leave the club following his poor performance this season and shambolic display against Arsenal on the new year.
Arsenal defeat Manchester United 2-0 on Wednesday, 1 January 2020 to start the year in a good note.
