Much of the Newcastle transfer news we have seen over the past two years has been because of one man and he is called Dan Ashworth. The higher-up who has vast experience in football, including at Brighton and Hove Albion and the England international team. While we are lucky to call him our footballing director, he could soon leave the club to join Man United after almost two years of his stint at St James Park.

Newcastle transfer news: Eddie Howe's unsung hero will join Man United on conditions

According to a new report by Football Transfers, Dan Ashworth would be open to accepting any potential invite from Man United to swicth sides in the North of England. He would accept the invitation based on two conditions - freedom and backing in the transfer market.

These are two conditions which are guaranteed to be met at Old Trafford more so than St James Park. The Red Devils are set to undergo a hierarchical revamp, with their new owners keen to make some big changes. Hiring someone with the vast experience of Dan Ashworth means they are willing to trust his every call. Of course, FFP rules benefit Man United more than Newcastle, so they are more capable of spending money in the transfer window, which would benefit Ashworth's vision.

I would like to think that Dan Ashworth will stay with us for the journey, but I have be a realist here. As much as I could be optimistic that people work in football for the love of the game, this is the 21st century and unfortunately, it is much more a business enterprise than a game. Therefore, it wouldn't surprise me to see Ashworth leave and join a club more willing to spend their resources. It's no fault of his own, it's the world we live in.
