Well, it didn’t take long did it.
Ravel Morrison – second Newcastle bid turned down
The news coming in is that Manchester United have turned down a second bid from Newcastle of £1M, for their top 18 year-old midfielder Ravel Morrison.
The news broke yesterday that Newcastle were interested in the player, who can play in midfield or as a striker up front, and he has immense talent.
Whether Newcastle will go back in with an even better offer is now debatable, since the initial bid of £500K was turned down last weekend by the Manchester club.
We had reported earlier today that Newcastle had gone back in with a £1M offer for the youngster.
If Newcastle do manage to sign the 18 year-old, he will probably be used as a striker for the rest of the season by the Magpies, and he will see some first team action, which is what he craves.
Ravel has made only three appearances for the Red Devils’ first team, playing those games in the Carling Cup over the last two seasons.
It looks like the ball is back in Newcastle’s court now.
