We heard last week that Newcastle had opened negotiations to try to sign Loic Remy on a permanent deal at Newcastle, and while back in August it may have appeared as though Newcastle were in the driver’s seat to sign the striker, that no longer is true.
Loic Remy – no way he will sign for Newcastle
In fact it’s even worse than that, and it looks like Newcastle have little to no chance of signing the 27 year-old especially with some top clubs – including Arsenal are said to be after his services.
Loic has scored 11 goals for Newcastle in just 22 appearances this season, and while at QPR last year he scored 6 goals in just 14 appearances for the London club, so the Frenchman has proved he can definitely score goals in the Premier League.
And some other big clubs such as Paris Saint Germain, Liverpool and Inter Milan are also said to be interested in signing the Frenchman in the summer.
Loic will not sign for Newcastle for at least a couple of reasons – one is that Newcastle cannot offer him Champions League football, and a player of Remy’s ability should be playing in Europe’s top league.
A second reason is that in case it wasn’t clear that Newcastle lack ambition under owner Mike Ashley, that was again made abundantly clear last month when Newcastle sold Yohan Cabaye to PSG for £20M.
Another way to put this is that Remy has become too good a player for a club with the the limited ambitions of Newcastle, and that was also the case with Yohan Cabaye.
We hope we are wrong on this, for the good of the Tyneside club, but we just cannot believe he will sign for the Magpies – sad but true.
