Manchester United have signed Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James since the end of last season and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made no secret of his desire to add further reinforcements.

Newcastle United star Sean Longstaff and Leicester City centre-back Harry Maguire are reported to rank highly on the Norwegian’s wish-list.

“If somebody had said to me a year ago I would be in this position, I would probably have laughed at them,” Longstaff told the Chronicle. “This time last year I was deciding whether to go to League One on loan. A year on, you are seeing your name linked with one of the biggest clubs in the world.

“For me, it is all a positive really. It gives you even more confidence. When I was in [the team] for a short amount of time people took notice of me. It is flattering but my job is at Newcastle. The new boss is coming in and it’s a clean slate for everybody – including me.”
