There’s a report out there today, that Newcastle want Tottenham striker Robbie Keane at St James’ Park this summer – you talk about old stale news.
Robbie Keane – very surprised if Newcastle want this player
That story was once true – but only if you back-tracked 12 months – and it’s now it;s rather inaccurate, in our view.
There’s just no way Newcatsle will be interested in a player who is past his best – and as we’ve all seen so far this summer, Newcatsle want younger players, with their best times still ahead of them.
Newcastle’s experience with Sol Campbell last season will hardly convince Mike Ashley to invest big wages in a player who turns 31 next month.
Robbie has just one year left on his contract at Spurs, but is on huge wages at Tottenham, and even if the transfer fee is low, The Irish captain’s wages would be far too high for a player who is not the future of Newcatsle.
But we still keep seeing these daft stories being put out, which were true 12 months ago, and simply seem to be regurgitated as if things hadn’t changed at Newcastle over the last year.
What do you think?
