One thing that is becoming obvious at Newcastle, is that the sudden sale of Yohan Cabaye to PSG last month is causing some disconnect among Newcastle players, and mainly the French players, much like the sale of Andy Carroll did three years ago, and it was no coincidence that Jose Enrique, Kevin Nolan and Joey Barton all left the following summer.
Mathieu Debuchy – could leave this summer
And we expect a number of players to leave Newcastle this summer, and they could leave because of a couple of reasons.
One is that they want to leave, and that could include some of our best players like Mathieu Debuchy, Loic Remy and Fab Coloccini, and it was bad news when we heard that Mathieu Debuchy said he was at Newcastle until the end of the season, but that he didn’t know where he would be next season.
Mathieu still has almost four and half years left on his contract at Newcastle, but it seems some big clubs – like Bayern Munich for example – could be in for him this summer, and as usual at Newcastle – if the money is good enough Mathieu will leave.
Ben Arfa may also be one that thinks it’s best to leave the club where he has been unable to gain a regular starting place this season and Inter-Milan are already said to be very interested.
And then the other reason lots of players could be leaving this summer is that Newcastle will unload, and it seems there will be a number of players who have just not made the grade at the club, or are past their best, and they include players like Jonas Gutierrez, Shola Ameobi, Sylvain Marveaux, Gabby Obertan, Steven Taylor, Dan Gosling and maybe Papiss Cisse and David Santon.
It seems that Newcastle may need to being in a right back and a center back, some wingers, some creative central midfielders and some strikers this summer – sounds almost like we need a new team. 😀
We hope Graham Carr is lining up replacements now, because there could be a huge clear-out this summer based on our best players wanting to leave and Newcastle clearing out those players they don’t want any more.
And Mike Ashley should be appointing a new Director of Football soon, as there seems lots of work for him to do.
