Newcastle will again try to sign their on-loan striker Loic Remy, who was completely cleared of the rape charge that has been hanging over his head since last May, and the french striker and two other men were cleared yesterday of all the charges.
Alan Pardew – wants Newcastle to sign Loic Remy permanently
But unfortunately there’s little chance of that
Newcastle did the right hing in August by signing Loic on loan, but of course of those rape charges hadn’t been over the lad’s head, Newcastle would have probably signed the striker outright from QPR for £8M, but now there seems title chance of Newcastle being to tie up a top Premier league striker.
That’s even more true now that Newcastle showed their hand last month and sold Yohan Cabaye to PSG – so it seems at least on the outside that money is much more important than performance on the field these days at Newcastle, and yes – that’s so very sad.
The local press is reporting that Newcastle have started preliminary discussions with Loic Remy’s representatives about a permanent move – and it’s worth a try we suppose.
The Chronicle is reporting there are at least seven clubs keen on signing Remy next summer, and we could guess there are a few PL clubs in there – and probably include both north London clubs – Arsenal and Tottenham.
And of QPR are promoted we are sire that owner Tony Fernandes will offer him even bigger wages to stay at the small London club – and Remy took that bait 13 months ago, and we suppose he could do it again.
Alan Pardew wants Newcastle to keep Remy, but our hand in now very weak in trying to attract proven Premier class players – and we think it’s almost certain that the 27 year-old will sign for a top club in the Champions League.
We hope we are wrong on that.
