Newcastle United are reportedly keen to sign Manchester United‘s Donny van de Beek, Jesse Lingard, Eric Bailly and Anthony Martial during the January transfer window.

The Premier League announced the takeover of the Saudi-backed consortium this week, who purchased Newcastle from Mike Ashley for £300million. After 14 years under the ownership of Mike Ashley. It’s rumoured that the club are ready to spend £190million in the January transfer window. With a raft of players already linked with a move to St James’ Park.

Newcastle United are looking to raid Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad during the January transfer window.  The club have identified four Manchester United players to sign after they struggled to cement a regular place in the Red Devils’ starting XI. With all four players expected to be available for transfer.

Van de Beek’s Manchester United’s experience has been far from ideal. Having managed just five minutes of Premier League game time.  Therefore, the 24-year-old – who was keen on a loan move to Everton – could snap up the opportunity to join Newcastle.

Newcastle United have keen interest in Manchester players

Earlier this week Jesse Lingard, who has made just three appearances as a substitute in the Premier League this season. Suggested that he may need to leave United in order to secure a place in England’s World Cup squad next year. ‘Obviously, the World Cup is a long way away but you need regular football. I was so close to going to the Euros and I think it plays a huge part and it’s a big factor,’ said Lingard.

Martial is another player that could walk out the door this winter. The 25-year-old struggled to make an impact last season after falling out of form. Scoring just seven goals in 36 games, and has largely featured off the bench this term. But Man Utd co-owner Joel Glazer has long been a fan of Martial. And has blocked transfers out of Old Trafford in the recent past.

Newcastle are also preparing to relieve Steve Bruce of his managerial duties.
