News today that both Newcastle and QPR are going head to head again, this time for French International Moussa Sissoko, and that’s according to French daily L’Equipe, and if money has anything to do with it - Newcastle will again miss out to the London club – who are willing to pay huge wages to players and good money to agents, to get players to join them.
Moussa Sissoko - QPR to hijack the deal – again
That’s what happend with Loic Remy when he was offered a massive £85K/week to join them, and after speaking with the owner Tony Fernandez, he signed on at QPR and scored for them on his debut, in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at West Ham.
The Toulouse midfielder is set to leave his club this week with the fee being around £3.5M for a player who has just six months left on his contract at the French club.
L’Equipe is reporting that Sissoko is keen on a move to Newcastle, where the Tyneside club already have a large contingent of good French players, and he could settle in very quickly, but news today that his agents will meet with the London club.
If it’s like the Remy deal his agents will be told there’s big money in it for them, and they will also offer Moussa big wages to join QPR’s relegation battle, and they offer to put a release clause in his contract, so that if they end up being relegated in May – he can leave for a stated transfer fee.
Moussa Sissoko is still only 22, and he is one of the best defensive midfielders in France, and he can also play as an attacking midfielder, and has been capped five times by France.
If QPR beat out Newcastle again, then it could have some impact on the relegation race if QPR keep beating us to our top targets in January – this is not good.
