Potential good news today that Argentine International midfielder Pablo Aimar is reported to be a potential target of Newcastle United.
Pablo Aimar – put up for sale by relegated Real Zaragoza
Aimar was placed on the transfer list by his Spanish club Real Zaragoza, after the club were relegated this season from the Spanish first division..
The Daily Mirror is reporting that Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan could be set to bid for the player, with the transfer fee estimated at around Â£6.5M.
Real Zaragoza were relegated from La Liga last month and the club is trying hard to trim their wage bill, and to recoup some transfer fees for some of their better players.
Aimar was a target of Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez only last January, when his price was quoted to be around the Â£20M mark.
The Mirror claims that Keegan is a big admirer of the attacking midfielder, but we are sure there will be stiff competition from other clubs probabaly in a better position this summer to entice the player to them.
Aimar has played 51 times for Argentina and scored 8 goals, and has previously played for River Plate (83 appearance 21 goals) and Valencia (162 appearances 27 goals), before joining Real Zaragoza in 2006.
Aimar was born in Rio Cuarto, Argentina and has played 53 times for Real Zaragoza with 5 goals, and stands 5’7″ tall.
It seems to us like the 29 year-old would be a great buy for the club, and seems like a Kevin Keegan type attacking player.
