We donâ€™t know if this is recirculated story or something new â€“ but news again today that Kevin Keegan may want to tempt the Portuguese Brazilian-born midfielder Deco to St. Jamesâ€™ Park.
Deco – could do a job at Newcastle for next 3 seasons
Deco played in both games for Barcelona against Manchester United in the semi-finals of the European Champions League during the last week, so you would think Barcelona still think highly of him.
He is no doubt still a very skillful creative player and could do well in the Premier League.
Itâ€™s also not beyond the realm of possibility that he could be attracted to be a corner-stone of Newcastle new exciting team under Kevin Keegan, and no doubt will be told of what Kevin did in the 1990s with Newcastle United, if he doesnâ€™t know the story already.
Deco is a proven player and can do the job at Newcastle we think, and although the transfer fee of Â£8M, may be high for a 30 year-old, he could do a job for the club in the next 3 seasons and wouldnâ€™t be much of a risk.
We’re sure that’s the way Kevin will be thinking, and Deco’s experience would also be a big help to Newcastle’s younger players.
