Newcastle Defender Moving To Italy – It Could Be A Risk


Surprising news tonight that Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa could be headed on a season long loan deal to AS Roma and not Marseilles, according to reports in Italy.

Mapou Yanga Mbiwa

Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa – could move on loan to AS Roma

Mapou cost Newcastle £6.8M in January of last year from Montpellier, and it’s unlikely that a club will come in for him with that amount of money, after he hasn’t played particularly well for Newcastle over a season and a half.

So the main thing Newcastle want to do is to at least get his wages off the wage bill for the season.

The way to do that is to get the lad out on loan, with an option to buy next summer, if the Frenchman does well while on loan,  and according to reports that figure has been set at around  £5M – so if Newcastle finally get that money,  we will have lost around  £1.5M on the player in transfer fees.

You win some and you lose some.

As far as the day-to-day finances are concerned, the only cost of a player to the Magpies are his wages, so if Newcastle can get the player out on loan then all – or a large proportion of his wages – will be paid by the club he’s loaned to.

There was some disagreement on wages with Marseilles, and it’s Newcastle’s right to get the best deal they can from a club paying his wages – and essentially loan deals are all about that – how much will the club pay of his wages – and save Newcastle money.

The news was that Newcastle wanted Marseilles to pay 80% of Mapou’s wages and maybe AS Roma are willing to pay that.

We were thinking that with Newcastle finding it difficult to bring in a top central defender before tomorrow night, they could be having second thoughts on Mapou, and maybe even have kept him at the club, so he would be another defender for Newcastle to choose from.

Our defending yesterday was  poor and even worrying the way we looked so porous at the back against a mediocre side.

But if the Magpies are still willing to allow Mapou to leave on loan, it tells us they are either confident of getting a new center-back in tomorrow, or they are confident that Curtis Good or Lubo Satka can do a job in case more than one of our three remaining center-backs are injured this season.

What do you think?

    on yanga mbiwa i cant make up my mind whether it would be best to get rid or not.

    his performances have been massive let downs after his form in france, but i think on balance it makes more sense to give him another shot and get a new manager…

    repost:

    Is the rumoured MYM loan deal to Roma / Marseilles in line with an incoming CB?

    If he goes, that leaves space on Pardew’s “roster” for Alderweireld / Van Dijk and when Coloccini is out of contract next summer we still have 4 CBs.

    this is just weird.. he’s probably our best CB.. it is a tough call, cos mbiwa & colo are not tall and we need a big, strong CB to partner any of them.. but it is the clubs fault we have 2 good small CBs in colo & mbiwa & 2 shocking towering defenders.. BUT considering colo left us in the middle of the season & wanted to force his move out of the club..sticking with colo and getting rid of mbwia just shows how weak pardew is.. i do hope mbwa gets his playing time..build up his confidence again..& comes back next year when colo and pardew are gone..

    Mapou play well first half of last season and keep several clean sheet.

    Williamson play and concede a thousands time and people still said he “play well”

    Damn, bit crappy to do that to her but she should say F off, that’s me so what?

    No one can criticise anything, she looks great and it wasn’t on purpose- she should feel no shame whatsoever.

    Aaaaaaaanyway- I also wondered why Roma weren’t going after Williamson- after all he’s clearly the better player….

    I’m thinking they won’t be playing M’biwa at right back.

    So no Virjil from celtic no aldrerweild cos he is going to southampton and lacazette bid has been rejected. Did all them clueless mugs that run this club actually think that I would believe for 1 minute that we would be bringing in extra bodies. Looking back at the pre seasons fixtures, no clubs who we played we tough. We looked a good team amongst amatures. Malaga showed us up and Pardew and Co should had take note yet he went with his usually favs and now were looking as fragile as ever. really feel like packing it all in until Ashley sells u and Pardew Carver and Stone all leave.

    Not trying to be negative guys but I doubt we will sign anyone today. Our top two transfer targets Remy and Lacazette rejected us and toby is close to a Southampton move. Be prepared for the worse guys.

    I suppose they didn’t realise that Mapou couldn’t play alongside Colo, which they might have recognized. There’s a big element of risk in our transfer policy, when price and availability often holds sway over suitability. Players don’t work out, you can’t get rid of them, and can’t replace them in a timely manner. We brought nine players in early and that’s good business, but none of them were the quality, imposing centre back, or 15-20 goal centre forward we need.

    I still think we’re a comfortable top ten side though, and one that will play some decent football, but that’s not so great really, from a multi billionaire owner after 7 years of ownership of a club the size of Newcastle.

    If he goes to Roma and plays well, then we might get 5 mill for him or even decide to bring him back and use him alongside an upgraded centre back, in an ideal world. Conversely, he plays ordinarily and comes back even less valuable to us than he is now. Or worse, he stays and it’s more of the same from him. That pretty much sums it up, I think. Probably do alright in Italy. It’s, I think its fair to say now an inferior and certainly lower tempo league, and it’s Rome, bet he’s desperate for it to happen.

    we bought mbiwa when colo was forcing his move to argentina.. all well..but when colo “changed” his mind, he walked into the starting 11, even tho mbwia played very well with wili..and thats a challenge..

    Mapou isn’t a worry for me but whats left are, how we can contemplate going into a season with just Colo, Williamson and Taylor, it will be a nightmare if this is allowed to happen, when we come up against the top teams it wont be if we loose or not it will be by how many

    toby might be better player but our def is screaming out for a van dijk type. physically dominating figure. toby is just another mym, good technique, pace but theres a reason both atleti and belgium played him at rb, hes not imposing enough for a cb.

    AC Milan won 3-1 vs Lazio under Inzaghi.
    That’s how you play 4-3-3, the only goal from Lazio is an own goal.
    3 defensive midfields, 3 very quick attackers, 2 wing backs bombing forward. That’s how you use 3 DM to cover the spaces of WB and covering slow pace CB. The work rate of 3 attackers are amazing, Honda, Menez, Shaarawy helping defense tracking WB runs even when they keep switching positions.

    Looks like if you crawl all over Pardews arse then you get a place in the team (unless you’re as bad a Saylor of course!)

    Mbiwa was Colo’s replacement…one for the future…Colo decides to stay so he doesn’t lose out financially, and is then rewarded with his place back in the team (after sloping off for three months claiming injury) and you wonder why Mbiwa falls out with Pardew after playing reasonably well in Colo’s absence.

    Colo is slow and he’s finished…mbiwa is younger, fitter, faster and would have adapted to the English game given time.

    Mbiwa was an investment in the future, but poor management has resulted in yet another promising player being Pardewed and leaving with nothing but bad memories.

    As someone beautifully put it yesterday…good foundation…..good bricks…sh!te bricky…

    …could’ve have put it better myself.
