Have Newcastle Done Mathieu Debuchy Deal?


We don’t  know if this is fake,  and we are taking a little bit of a chance, but on what we think is Mathieu Debuchy’s official Twitter account, he is confirming he has signed for Newcastle United.

Mathieu Debuchy – tweet that he’s singed for Newcastle

This is what he said on his Twitter account:

“I can confirm ?#Newcastle?”

But before we get too excited about this it could well be fake, and there are more and more ways these days to put out news that is just not true – we all know about that.

But on the other hand this certainly looks like his official Twitter account, and we know Newcastle are very close to the deal, and that a £7M fee was agreed between Newcastle and Lille for the French International only yesterday, according to reports.

So the next thing would be to agree terms with the player, which shouldn’t be too difficult, and then Mathieu would need to have his medical, and only after that would the deal be official.

So this news could be true – we hope this news is true!

If this news is accurate, it will be tremendous for Newcastle, and hopefully we’ll have an announcement from the Tyneside club on their web-site – with nothing out there at the moment.

The only new news is that Newcastle will play Den Haag, Tim Krul’s former club, in a pre-season friendly on Saturday 4th August with a 5:00 pm kick-off time, and we will play Fenerbehce at a new venue at the Sonnenseestadion, which is the home of Austrian club SC Ritzing, on Saturday 21st July.

Comments welcome.

    Repost:
    I personally would like to see Debuchy at RB and Erik Pieters at LB with Santon keeping them both on their toes and then when STaylors,inevitable shoulder/groin/hamstring/Achilles/troublesome back or jaw goes then Pieters to slot in at CB and Santon making the left his own.

    Not to bash you ed because your work is admirable but how does the twitter account look real? His best mate (cabaye) doesnt follow him it does not have the blue authenticated tick and location settings show it as from Chile?

    This is all starting to look like the:

    Forsythe Saga! Probably showing my age there!

    But all this info and different posts about different players is starting to get to me!

    Don,t want to hear anything more about Douglas, Debuchy or Anita until they have deffo been signed and the Photo,s been published of them with the shirt in their hands!

    Extremely Frustrating!!!!

    Jesper,
    Because he’s still young and learning and the fact that there are sh*t loads of games to play next season and we don’t how well he can stand the rigours of a prolonged campaign.

    Twitter is full of fake accounts.
    Every celebrity, every sports-player.

    I have no idea why someone would get fun out of doing this? It’s a pretty sad pass-time.

    Some saddo in Chile pretending to be a French full-back … wtf

    I just thought it was a waste of money, when we have a perfect capable fullback in Santon 🙂

    Buy someone in the muld of Tav as backup.

    I would rather the money this season was spend else where 🙂

    Jesper,
    I don’t class six million a lot of money in todays world of football,and as for benching him, I think they call it squad rotation so to have three international class players that can cover LB,CB and DM in a season with 60 plus games in a season I think a little extra layout is worth it.

    Jfa like that idea, judging by pieters injuries he does sayloresque defending so good for rotation. Sakho and either douglas/Alderweild/Tasci as well = cracking defensive options. Given the fixture load, its needed plenty of options

    Untill its confirmed on the NUFC website i’ll not belive it. But, on the whole fake twitter account thing, Demba Ba’s twitter isnt verified yet and we still all belive he’s the real deal, same with Cisse. Unless thats changed recently.

    This huge increase in revenues for the premier league, I actually find distasteful. To almost double the money they get from sky b stinks. Its like a deal done behind closed doors to get around the financial play rules, to keep the top on top. Stinks

    dont think its real. The person behind this account must be laughing so hard for getting the attention he wants. Reason why i think its fake its bc 1st YC isnt following him and 2ndly i dont see any lille or hardly any french players he’s following or following him.

    Santon and Debuchy are great attacking full-backs so it’s a necessity to have 2 holding midfielders in the mould of Tioté.

    What are you talking about?

    The Sky deal is a sealed bid system for TV rights and has nothing to do with the Fair Play Rules.

    @ JFA

    At last someone who can see that another LB is needed as we have no cover. Both FB positions can be strengthened plus CB cos if the group stages of Europa are reached and the progression of the team achieved better quality players are needed beyond Raylor, Perch and in other areas such as CM and attack.

    I thinks it’s fair to say that none of our youngsters (perhaps Fergie aside) are at this moment in time ready to start PL games.

    Cameos here and there, cup games and European minnows are perfect for the likes of Sammy, Abied and Vuckic.

    With that I would say we deffo need to make a minimum of 4 good signings if we really want to assult the PL.

    If any if our best get injured long term then we are not only short in numbers but short on experience. For me a collective of Debuchy, Anita, Hoillet and Peiters would be phenomenal and each offers versatility, experience and quality.

    However other than Debuchy I doubt that we will sign any of the aforementioned players and instead we may just take another gamble on their future availability and sign Douglas as well as Debuchy and that’ll be out lot for te window.

    Well if the twitter is fake or not, I do believe that this is a sign that is coming. Now we need Douglas, Anita, and two young strikers to learn from the massive senegalese pair that we got contracted. My Suggesion is Rhodes and Guidetti. The best thing for the youth is to train with the first squad so that they get tips and more experience. This is the way the other 5 clubs have done in the premier leauge. So get the youngsters in…. Niang, Good and all the other gems that can come. You need to dig to get the gems. But the diamonds will reward you. Just look at the last few seasons of transfers.
