There’s a story that Newcastle want Manchester City’s Wayne Bridge.
Wayne Bridge – are Newcastle interested
We find that really hard to believe, but the story is nevertheless in The Sun today.
There are at least a couple of good reasons that go against this potential deal.
One is that Wayne is already 30 years old, and doesn’t fit with Newcastle wanting to bring in players around 25 or less, so they have sell-on value.
And Wayne is also on huge wages of around £80K/week at the Eastlands club.
City are said to be close to brokering a £7M deal for Arsenal’s Gael Clichy, and Newcastle’s Jose Enrique could be going to Arsenal, although there is news today that Arsenal may also be after Everton left-back Leighton Baines.
We’re sure Newcastle have another left=back lined up to bring in, should Jose decide to leave the Tyneside club this summer, but we’d be very surprised if it’s Wayne Bridge.
What do you think?
