Newcastle Interested In Roma International Midfielder?


It looks like a player from Europe will be unveiled at Newcastle in the next few days, but who he is,  we have no idea.

Jeremy Menez – Newcastle interested in French International

One player it could possibly be is Roma’s Jeremy Menez, the 24 year-old gifted French International,  who is currently at Roma.

Menez has recently clashed with caretaker manager Vincenzo Montella at Roma, who took over from the sacked Claudio Ranieri, and the word is Menez would like to leave the Italian club during the upcoming summer transfer window.

Menez can play on the wing or as a play-maker or as a withdrawn striker, and he has interested both Newcastle and Liverpool of the Premier League recently.

And according to the local Sunday Sun, Newcastle have had scouts regularly watching the 4 times capped French International.

The Longjumeau-born Frenchman began his career at Sochaux back in 2001, and then moved to Monaco in 2006, before moving to Roma in 2008 for a fee of around £10M, after incentives had been paid to Monaco by the Italian club.

Jeremy has so far played 109 times for Roma with 12 goals, and would be available for around £10M,  we would think.

He has played 233 club games so far in his career with 33 goals and is a two-footed technically skilled play-maker, with undeniable pace.

Sounds good to us.

What do you think?

    I really hate Liverpool. I wish they wouldn’t send their scouts to follow ours everywhere. They’re literally planning on stealing our best players and our potential players.

    I guarantee daglish next year will be shocking and he’ll get sacked. He is a useless manager and proved that when he managed /newcastle and dismantled our perfect Keegans team. Yes, granted he got us to 2nd or what not, but even Souness could’ve done that with that team.

    I’m not sure who I hate more, Liverpool or Spurs?

    I’ve just heard that we’ve signed 18 year old midfielder Mehdi Abeid from Lens. Apparently he really impressed during a recent trial.

    Seen this player play live before in Rome a few times this season and last season when I went for meetings. He is a very good fast player, bags of potential. My roma friends highly rate him but they say like Zogbia, he has a attitude. But so did Ben arfa right?

    If we got him and N’Zogbia we’d be in the top 7 next season I think. This might have been the flair player Pardew was talking about.

    Menez is unrealistic but then so was Ben Arfa and we managed to get him. Also Menez would be leaving in similar circumstances to Benny did.

    Ben Arfa was rated as one of the hottest young player out there he plays for us so as unrealistic as it sounds now you don`t know who we`ll get.

    See what i mean. No source, Ed just makes things up and automatically says that Liverpool are intrested. Next time you just make up a story linking us to some european superstar but at the start of the article ‘this is just me speculating’ because you are just getting peoples hopes up.

    If we sign Menez I’ll laugh my socks off.

    Why? Because I’ve never seen him mentioned by the press who keep throwing out the likes of Carlton Cole purely to stir the sh&t. Sh&t which some fans believe.

    Also, if the Menez fee is c£10M and it’s true N’Zogbia is on his way in the next 2 weeks for about the same that will be c£20M spent for starters! If that happens its fingers up to the neggers on here like Solano and Jezza. What WILL they and others like them say then eh?

    It seems obvious to me that Pardew wants a nucleus of skillful young French players in the team guided by experienced Premier pro’s like Nolan and Barton. Sounds bloody good to me.

    Here’s another thing I’ve just realised. We have an English owner, an English manager and an English captain. How many other Prem clubs can say the same?

    CheickTiote – I am starting to feel the same way. Dalglish is crap and will be caught out. As you can remember he destroyed our great KK team. I think in Liverpool he is being helped by his scouts but he will still do badly I feel and hope. I am glad Judas isn’t having the time of his life either 🙂

    rozehnal, Hulk? Great. He’s only got a 100 million sign on clause. Mind you that’s euro’s so Ashley may be tempted. 🙂

    Why do people believe this? You must be stupid to not realise that there is no evidence it is just Ed thinking ‘hmm that players good, lets say were after him’

    ITS NOT TRUE!!!!

    There is no source for most people being linked with players, stop moaning!! There were no sources with us being linked with Gervinho to begin with, or Zog or half the people we have been linked with.

    gabriele marcotti reported our interest in menez previously. again not sure how true but remember the influence we have over french players now they have seen the treatment and support benarfa has been given…we’ve become an even bigger draw to them. benarfa’s advisors have said they have had various top french players asking about nufc and whether they can get moves

    Yeah I agree nufc_mo and in transfer fees that team would only cost around 40m extra. PLus we’d get like 10 – 15m from the sale of Enrqiue.

    Snubs – thats my point. There is no proof for any of the players we have been linked with but nearly everyone seems certain they are true. Making up transfer storys is how the newspapers make their money. They just make them up out the blue.
