Agent For Matuidi And Erdinc – Newcastle A Fatastic Club


More good news today about the burgeoning reputation of Newcastle United in French Football.

Blaise Matuidi – a Newcastle target

There is some great news in the Evening Chronicle today, that the agent of Newcastle targets Blaise Matuidi and Mevlut Erdinc, has put out a huge compliment to the Newcastle club.

And the agent has said that he thinks any French player would love to join Newcastle, and it  seems that Newcastle’s reputation in France is getting better and better.

And it’s hardly surprising the two French players  the club have brought in so far this summer, Yohan Cabaye and Sylvain Marveaux, have talked in glowing terms of their delight at moving to a club like Newcastle.

Hey, Newcastle could even be a better club than Newcastle fans realize – but no – that cannot be true.

😀

But Newcastle must be doing something very right, at least as far as the French are concerned.

French agent Pierre Frelot, who  represents both Blaise Matuidi and Mevlut Erdinc, had this to say today about Newcastle United:

“Any player in France would love to come to Newcastle – they are an absolutely fantastic club.”

“All the French lads who go to Newcastle are really enthusiastic about the club and the football public in the North East too.”

“Newcastle has a place in the hearts of French football. Great players like Laurent Robert and David Ginola have played there and enjoyed it and the supporters loved them too.”

“Of course any French player would be interested in Newcastle.”

We have to quickly point out that this doesn’t necessarily  mean both players will be coming to Newcastle.

But it would certainly appear that both players could be more than happy to join Newcastle, if the club can agree a fee with their clubs St Etienne (Matuidi) and PSG (Erdinc).

And there again maybe Pierre Frelot is so ecstatic because he’s going to make some big money by arranging the transfer of his two clients to Newcatsle.

St Etienne’s Matuidi could be quite expensive, and the current price that PSG have put on Erdinc is said to be around £10M.

It would appear that Newcastle must be acting very professionally in the transfer market, and it’s surprising how big a name Newcastle seem to have in France right now.

That’s all good news though.

    Not keen or Erdinc but Matuidi is a good player id love to see him in our team, Melvet just doesnt score enough to be our top striker.

    After all the free agents we should buy a striker of the ilk of Falcao. if we had a decent owner could have gotten him. he would not be asking for high wages.

    I have to be honest what a NAME – FALCAO

    i would love to see them both playing for my beloved! after looking into erdinc abit more he seems prety decent in my opinion, some people in turkey call him the turkish messi so there has to be some truth in that? but it all looks good so far on the transfer front 😀

    Do we really need Matuidi? Will he honestly be in the starting 11? or will he be an expensive backup for tiote?

    I hope we get El Erabi, wants EPL move and doesnt seem to have the attitude problem Taarabt has.
    Worth not alot of money and bagged 17 goals from Wing i hope Carr and that push his name through to Pards to get, But tbh after a Free Agent signing of Sylvain means we are about to loose a few players soon before we buy again, our way is sell someone/buy replacement.

    Couldnt Matuidi and Tiote both sit in front of the back four? Cabaye just in front of them and two wingers and a striker.

    Would be a different way to what Pardew wanted a few months ago but it would be a strong defensive line

    Can I say no thank you to both? Erdinc looks decent, but we should be looking at a real top drawer presence up front to take us above what he have. Law of diminishing returns and all that, we have to invest in a complete, proven package to lead the line if we want move upwards from here.

    Matuidi is a defensive midfielder by all accounts, it’s one area we have covered aplenty with Tiote – Guthrie as back up.

    Id rather go for a young frog kid called Yann M’vila, better than Matuidi – he played against us (England) last year and our midfield done fuc£all to their back 4 due to him.

    MattCastle90@

    Taarabt? If so he has came out saying he would stay, then came out in papers he wanted to leave and wants a big team team, they way he reacted is poor to the team who took a gamble on him his words were very negative about QPR.

    Then saying he would use NUFC As a “Stepping Stone ” to Man U and Chelsea

    Then when he got told for Morroco he would be on the bench he quit and left camp and flew home without telling anyone and said he would retire from International.

    I was reading a carr interview and he said that he has visited france and finished scouting there, as we’ve signed cabaye and marveaux. He said that this week he was visiting Germany to sign players, seeing as it’s only tuesday I can see us signing one or two by the end of the week from the bundesliga! anyone know any players that would be good fro us from there?

    What about all the young players we’ve got coming through to use at CM? Why don’t we save money and use them as backup instead of buying expensive players only for them to warm the bench?

    I would rather see that kind of money spend on a pacey striker e.g. Sturridge.

    Matuidi would be good for us maybe it would give Tiote abit more freedom to do things like he did against arsenal I think Erdinc is the upgraded Lovenkrands to our upgraded Ameobi – Demba Ba. We still need a another stiker and since Porto look to be vunerable we shouild go for Hulk. Again Maybe too expensive though!!

    Aye, fair enough. If we get rid of JB though we just havent got an angry brit to grab games by the scruff of the neck in the middle of the park- we already have the black Roy Keane – step forward Cheik! But we need another, any ideas?

    Away from home, Matuidi and Tiote in front of a back four would be solid.
    Hit teams on the counter-attack.

    Big fan of Matuidi, yeh he loves a tackle like Tiote, but he’s not the same player. I think him and Tiote lying deeper in the CM would be a solid platform for our attack minded players to do their thing. Erdinc i’m not as sure about, but if G. Carr. is picking the players i think he knows a lot more than myself so i’d be happy to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    M’vila and Falcao, of course if Ashley was not owner we would be getting these players along with Aguero and Fabregas!! Come on lets be realistic.

    I’m sure all the French clubs love us. They know we ave the cash & we pay up front. Which club wouldn’t love us?

    On the transfer front, I can’t believe the sheet comin out of fans here who don’t like Matuidi or Erdinc. I trust Carr. The man def know what he’s doing.
