Newcastle United: Premier League rivals were not keen to help in transfer window

Newcastle United: Premier League rivals were not keen to help in transfer window -Newcastle United News

Transfer insider Dean Jones has shared that Manchester United were not keen to help Newcastle United in the summer window.

The Lowdown: Transfer difficulties

The St James’ Park outfit had some difficulties signing players over the last few months, having been strongly linked with moves for then-Red Devils duo Dean Henderson and Jesse Lingard.

Both players ended up signing for Nottingham Forest, meaning that the Magpies missed out on two of their summer targets, and Eddie Howe spoke of his frustration at what he saw as Premier League clubs not wanting to be seen helping his side.

The Latest: Man United blocked Newcastle moves

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones has shared that the Manchester club blocked moves from Newcastle for the likes of Henderson and Lingard, as they view Howe’s side as a future threat in terms of one day overtaking them in the Premier League table.

The journalist claimed: “Man United, when Newcastle were looking at [their players], whether it was Henderson or Lingard, were like, ‘We’re not especially keen to help you here because, at some point, you’re going to be knocking on the door trying to take our position.’ “

The Verdict: Interesting

It is certainly interesting that Manchester United, the most successful team in Premier League history, now see Newcastle as that big of a threat to them.

Of course, the takeover in the northeast last year has meant that the Magpies’ owners have been able to splash the cash on the likes of Alexander Isak and Bruno Guimaraes, while the Red Devils have seen a decline in recent years, having not won the top-flight title since 2013.

Should Newcastle have given Howe a new deal?





This is partially due to the takeover of their neighbours Manchester City 14 years ago, which has seen them win six of the last 11 Premier League titles, and perhaps there is fear that the Toon could have a similar period of dominance further down the line.
