The alarm bells are ringing among Manchester United supporters amid reports that Unai Emery is approaching his vacant position as manager of Newcastle United.

A four-time winner of the Europa League, the Spaniard was defeated by United and under-pressed Ole Gunnar Solskjær in the Gdansk show last season after a dramatic penalty shootout.

Emery’s monopoly on that competition has made him one of the highest rated coaches in Europe.

That is despite a fateful period of responsibility at Arsenal.

Following a £ 305m seismic yet agreed-upon takeover in October, Saudi-backed Magpies have yet to replace Steve Bruce in the grave, but Emery is now said to have ‘held talks’ with key figures in the North East.

This news has been reported by our sister publication ChronicleLive as the proposals for a settlement continue.

Needless to say, it has attracted the attention of Premier League fans across the board. Here is an example of comments from United fans:

@ United4Ever10 added: “If Newcastle get Emery, the second worst team in the league will have a far better manager than us.”

@ Shaaz2277 added: “The times when United dominated Europe long ago are over, we don’t even dominate Manchester anymore. Next up is Emery at Newcastle with cash.”
