According to The Chronicle, Newcastle United could allow Manquillo to leave the club on loan before the end of the transfer window.
Newcastle are reportedly looking to sign Emil Krafth and his potential arrival would give Steve Bruce a lot of right-back options to work with.
Steve Bruce already has the likes of DeAndre Yedlin, Jamie Sterry and Manquillo with him, and it seems he is ready to let the Spaniard go provided Krafth joins the club.
Newcastle fans feel that Manquillo, who impressed towards the end of last season, has been one of the standout players for the Magpies during the pre-season.
While Manquillo isn’t exactly a popular figure among the Newcastle fans, the decision to let him go when he’s hitting form has left the fans completely baffled.
Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter:
And last season.

Manquillo has been outperforming Yedlin for a while and is more versatile. If we got to keep one as backup it would be Manquillo for me.

What kind of message does that show our fringe players? He’s literally been playing better than yedlin ever was.
Why don’t we loan sterry out instead?
