According to The Chronicle, The Magpies are reportedly now in pole position to sign the Manchester United centre-back, with Steve Bruce having worked with Tuanzebe during his loan spell at Aston Villa in the 2018/19 season.
Do you think Newcastle will get relegated if they don't sign any players this summer?
What have these Newcastle fans been saying?
“Exciting times. #nufc”
“This is the type of centre-half we need”
“Anyone complaining about this needs to see how this lad performed against PSG in the champions league! #NUFC”
“Will be a very good buy, pleased with this news”
Tuanzebe earned rave reviews for his standout performance for Man United in the Champions League against PSG last season, so Newcastle fans will be hoping he can bring that form to Tyneside if a deal can be brokered.
All of the central defenders that Steve Bruce had at his disposal last season were aged 27 or older, so bringing in some youth with Premier League experience could be a smart signing by the Magpies.
