There’s no way Newcastle should pay out £20M to bring Andy Carroll back to Newcastle, and if that’s really what Liverpool want for their England striker, Newcastle should look elsewhere.
Andy Carroll – in England’s colors
When you look at the deal Liverpool want to make, there’s just no way they will let Newcastle get any kind of good deal, after they were taken to the cleaners a short 18 months ago, as somehow Mike Ashley and derek Llambias persuaded them to pay out £35M in cool cash for the charismatic Geordie striker.
Liverpool have been embarrassed by that deal, and especially the new American owners, who were new to the game of football transfers, and relied on manager Kenny Dalglish and Director of Football Damien Comolli, but it was a terrible deal, and both Comolli and Dalglish have since been sacked by the club.
Liverpool would much prefer to do a deal with any other club than Newcastle, because if the Magpies can get him back for even £20M, Newcastle have still got a 15M profit in a short 18 months, and that will be the headlines, and Liverpool will not look good – and they know it.
But it seems that Liverpool are ready to sell the 23 year-old this summer, and news today that Andy’s advisers spoke with new manager Brendan Rodgers yesterday, and were informed that indeed he doesn’t see Carroll as part of his future plans.
Rodgers wants to bring a Barcelona style of football to Liverpool, and will play the ball on the ground and pass the ball around, much like Swansea have done for the last couple of seasons.
There’s news today that Newcastle are preparing a new all-cash bid of £16M, but Liverpool will reject that, and be much more comfortable selling Andy to another club – like West Ham, Aston Villa or some other club – any other club!
That’s why it will be very difficult for Newcastle to do another deal with Liverpool, at least when a certain Andy Carroll is involved.
It’s a really good story that broke on Sunday night by Sky Sports, that’s very true, but even Newcastle cannot pull this one off – not this time.
Can they? 😀
