The Sunday Sun is linking us again with Argentine play-maker Pablo Aimar.
Â Pablo Aimar – would be great buy for Magpies
This is not the first time we’ve been linked with this player, who we think would do great at Newcastle United.
The 28-year-old midfielder is looking to leave Real Zaragoza, following their relegation from La Liga last season.
And of course Real Zaragoza want to unload Pablo Aimar, to cut costs at the club, and Newcastle have been interested in him, at least since May, probably when they realized Zaragoza would be relegated.
Gustavo Muscardi, who is Pablo’s agent, claims Newcastle have already enquired about his client, but have made no formal bid yet.
Aimar holds a Spanish passport, and would therefore encounter no work permit problems, if he moved to Newcastle.
Muscardi has admitted that England holds a particular attraction for his player as he said:
â€œNewcastle have asked about Aimarâ€™s situation â€” that is certain,â€
â€œThere has still not been any formal offer for us and Zaragoza to study, but the Premier League would be perfect for him.”
“And I want to speak with Newcastle to take things forward.â€
It is thought the initial fee mentioned of Â£6.5M is rather high, and that a solid bid of just Â£4M from Newcastle United, could secure the deal.
That would be an excellent deal for Newcastle, considering that in 2006 Aimar joined Real Zaragoza for 12M Euros, which is about Â£9.48M with today’s rate of 0.79 euros to Â£.
We hope Newcastle will move quickly this week, to tie up this player, who we’re certain can be an excellent acquisition for the club, and he would play well forÂ Kevin Keegan.
Here is Pabloâ€™s career playing record so far:
