And the talented midfielder, who's on a reported £850 per week academy contract, could leave England for Italy after being tabled a lucrative five-year deal, according to Sky Sports.
Matty Longstaff has been offered £30,000-a-week to sign for Serie A side Udinese. The midfielder flew out to Italy before lockdown, where held talks over a 5-year-deal. Longstaff wants to stay at Newcastle but Udinese's offer is more than double that of Newcastle's #NUFC

To put this into context; this would make Matty Longstaff Udinese' highest paid player. De Paul is currently the highest on £26,000-a-week. Which makes me think Watford is almost the guaranteed destination https://t.co/ILUHJlasUj
