Now Real Madrid And Manchester United Want Carroll

The silly season is almost with us, with the opening of the January transfer window on January 1st.

Andy Carroll – budding super star striker at Newcastle

And we will likely see headlines regularly, if not every day, about Newcastle’s new number 9 star, 21 year-old Andy Carroll being wanted by big clubs everywhere.

Even Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has said it will all get very boring soon.

It’s already started with Harry Redknapp once again doing his transfer business in the gossip press, and we hear deal-maker Harry wants to unload two players he doesn’t want to Newcastle, who interestingly Newcastle don’t want either – in exchange for the up and coming super star Andy Carroll.

That seems a great deal to us – but only for Tottenham.

And in the last few days why not throw in probably the greatest two club in world football – Real Madrid and Manchester United – as also being interested in Andy Carroll.

And that £20M fee that  Tottenham were willing to spend – may even be a bit low – so let’s say that Real Madrid will bid £22M for Andy.

And it’s getting to be disappointing that no big headlines have been seen yet – about Chelsea,  Arsenal and Liverpool also wanting the Gateshead-born 6’3″ striker.

But we are really waiting for Man City to come in with a bid, another one of their stupid bids, as they tell the world once again they are the richest club on earth by bidding ridiculous  money for Andy.

Hey, we’d be disappointed if  we don’t see a headline soon saying Man City want Carroll and will bid at least £30M for him.

I mean they’ve already paid out  $500M in a little over two years for their players – so maybe even a  £50M bid will come from them for big Andy – and don’t laugh – the Eastlands club are indeed that stupid – they’ve proved that too many times before,  since the new owners took over  in August of 2008.

If  City are willing to pay around £25M for James Milner and also a similar amount for Joleon Lescott, then how much is Andy – a potential future super-star – worth to them?

If we don’t see a headline like that soon – it may even become a rather boring January – and surely we cannot have that.

Of course Andy Carroll will be going nowhere in January – he doesn’t want to ever leave his home town club – and only people born and bred in Newcastle can really understand that.

Andy has also  made that more than abundantly clear to anybody what wants to stop the charade and listen to the boy.

And we trust Mike Ashley will not commit hari kari by selling the growing super-star, who looks to be yet another great in the long line of very famous number 9s at Newcastle United.

    Lets be realistic.. if we get a bid.. lets say £25M.. at some point we have to sell him.. that is the way football is today. maby even the best way to do business right now. I dont say I want him to leave, oh no. But if we can find a replacement that is interresting maby we should take the offer.. hopefully not from ManU, city, tottenham… Real would be the best deal..

    It will be £50 million as the new system will stop this stupid transfers soon, I would like to bet it will be done just to stop the others from getting him, and the limit will not be just £50mil it could go higher depending on what interest there will be. Andy Carroll is the new Shearer and if we keep him for another couple of years no one will be able to afford buy him under the new rules. the only light at the end of the tunnel for the fans is Ashley’s businesses are doing so well at the moment he does not need to sell.

    I would take £30mil but not to EPL.

    Dont get me wrong, I would not want him to leave but every player has their price. and if that cash was injected back into the transfer pot then you could get some decent players in with that cash.

    If he was to leave, which obviously I really don’t want him to, but if he was, I could accept it if he went abroad to a super club and would fully support him in his decision. I just really don’t want to see him play against us in the Prem, that would make me physically sick.

    @ geordie_india . Agreed ;50m Mental

    What is equally mad is spending 25m on James Milner then hardly playing him; a lot of wasted wasted talent at Man city.

    Carroll isn’t leaving, end of.

    Anyway, what’s the point in getting £20million, 30, 40 or even £50 million for him, even if he does go to Real Madrid.

    Ashley would just pocket the cash and sell up. Does everyone have such a short memory that they can’t remember what happened to the Milner money? Exactly, “invested” in one of Lambiarse’s casions no doubt.

    Andy doesn’t want to go, the fans don’t want him to go. The only way he is going is if a big enough bid comes in for the lad. £20 Million cash (not plus players you idiot Redknapp) and Ashley will sell him. It’s sad but true. Having said this though there is every likely hood that a bid could be accepted and Andy won’t even discuss personal terms with them.
