Newcastle boss Howe sets sights on Man United trio

Newcastle boss Howe sets sights on Man United trio

 

The latest word doing the rounds in the English media this weekend suggests that Newcastle United are considering swoops for a trio of out-of-favour Manchester United stars.

Howe arrives

The highly-anticipated new era at Newcastle of course took a major step forward earlier this week, courtesy of the long-awaited appointment of the club’s new manager.

On the back of the big-money Saudi takeover on Tyneside, and ensuing dismissal of Steve Bruce last month, speculation had been rampant regarding just who would be entrusted with the reins on the bench at St. James’ Park.

A whole host of tacticians, including the likes of Unai Emery and Paulo Fonseca, were tipped for the post over the last couple of weeks.

On Monday afternoon, though, much to the relief of the Magpies faithful, confirmation was finally forthcoming that the club’s wealthy new owners had made their decision.

The man chosen to replace Bruce? Eddie Howe:

Red Devils stars eyed

Howe, in turn, is expected to be afforded a considerable war chest with which to add some much-needed reinforcements to his new squad of players in January, with Newcastle, as things stand, firmly entrenched in the Premier League relegation battle.

And, as outlined above, if the latest word stemming from the media this weekend is anything to go by, then three such targets appear to have been identified, all of whom currently ply their trade at Old Trafford.

As per a report from The Daily Mirror (cited by Sky Sports), all of Dean Henderson, Donny van de Beek and Jesse Lingard are ‘on the radar’ of the Tyneside club.

This comes with Eddie Howe of the opinion that the Manchester United trio would add significant quality to his squad.

Not only that, but an insight into the new Magpies’ boss expected budget for January has also been provided, with the club’s new owners expected to pump at least £50 million into transfers following the turn of the year.
