Once they get going Newcastle seem to be wasting no time as Sky Sports is said to be reporting today that Newcastle have signed Pablo Aimar, another Argentine midfielder.
Pablo Aimar – another Newcastle signing?
We warn that nothing about this is official until announced by the Newcastle Unite official site, but hopefully that verification will not be too long in coming.
Real Zaragoza, Aimar’s club, were relegated from the Spanish First Division last season, and they wanted to unload their Argentine International to cut costs at the club.
The fee should be anywhere between Â£6.5M, which is what Zaragoza wanted, and Â£4M, which is what Newcastle United initially offered, if this news is true.
Real Zaragoza had invited Newcastle to make an improved bid for their player, that will meet the Spanish clubâ€™s demands.
Here is Pabloâ€™s career playing record so far:
Years Club App Goals 1995â€“2001 River Plate 83 21 2001â€“2006 Valencia CF 162 27 2006â€“ Real Zaragoza 53 5 1999â€“ Argentina 51 8
Again, this is breaking news and nothing is official until it comes from the official Newcastle United Site.
We are certainly hoping this is true though.
Comments very welcome.
