There’s an article by Luke Edwards today in the local Newcastle Journal that’s reporting the news that Newcastle have increased their offer for Kevin Gameiro of French club Lorient.
Kevin Gameiro – have Newcastle put in increased offer?
The news was initially in the Daily Mail this morning and although the Frenchman wants to go to Spain, he may be open to a switch to Newcastle – we hope.
But then would you believe in the same edition of the Journal today, correspondent Mark Douglas has come out and written a contrasting story:
Meanwhile United are unlikely to sign Lorient’s highly coveted striker Kevin Gameiro – despite fresh reports from France that Newcastle have lodged an £8M bid.
There was interest and an offer from St James’ Park last month, but Newcastle have moved onto other targets after Gameiro’s representatives indicated that the player would prefer to move to Spain.
Although United would happily return if Gameiro has a change of heart, fellow suitors Valencia are firmly in the driving seat.
It seems the two writers are not communicating with each other.
And the news today is that the new bid is for £10M with Newcastle initially putting in an £8M bid, at least that’s what the reports have said.
It’s more than confusing as to what the truth is coming out of the Tyneside club, and this is not meant to be a criticism – it’s just odd, that’s all.
Of course I’ve been known to even disagree with myself on any one day too. 😀
