Red Devils Want Newcastle Striker In January


There’s a report in the Star today that Manchester United are considering a January move for 21 year-old Newcastle striker Ayoze Perez.

ayoze perez 2-0

Ayoze Perez in action last Saturday

Given that Swansea are also supposed to be keen on our other striker – Papiss Cisse – to replace Wilfried Bony, maybe come February we’ll have no striker who can score goals for Newcastle. 😀

These two strikers have scored 14 Premier League goals his season for Newcastle in 36 joint appearance between the two of them.

This happens every transfer window when the bigger clubs are rumored to want our best players, but we’d be very surprised if Newcastle sell either striker this month.

One reason is that Mike Ashley will hardly want to sell any of our best players while Newcastle are looking for a new head coach – so we hope Ashley behaves himself in January.

However,  if Ayoze Perez continues his rapid progress at Newcastle, we may find it hard to hold onto the Spaniard in the summer, if a big bid from one of the big clubs comes in for him.

But hopefully Newcastle will keep all their best players this month so that at least the new head coach gets a chance to see them before they are sold.

It seems that Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal believes he needs more strike power at the club for the rest of the season, and the Dutchman seems keen on Perez.

And certainly when Perez played at Old Trafford earlier this season, former manager Alex Ferguson was said to be very impressed with the 21 year-old Spaniard.

Of course young Perez is already a great favorite with the Newcastle fans, and he has an awesome imitation of the Geordie dialect.

That has nothing to do with anything- but we just thought we’d mention it.

The former Tenerife youngster is an excellent player who works his socks off for the team, and he seems to work just as hard in training, so those characteristics will very likely make him into a successful player in his career.

But at some point Mike Ashley has to think about the side he has at Newcastle,  and try to make us into a top side again.

We’ll never do that if we keep selling our best players, which the Newcastle owner has a very bad habit of doing.

While we don’t really expect any player to leave Newcastle this month, we’ve been wrong before.

Ayoze Perez has been awesome for Newcastle this season, and in 22 appearances he has scored 5 Premier League goals for Newcastle.

He’s a fantastic prospect – and hopefully will stay at Newcastle United

    Mister tuff on previous thread,
    You’ve got the interview process spot on.

    I totally agree with you
    First half against Burnley played well should of been out of sight. second half AWFUL
    Leicester didn’t see it but sounded/read like we were poor.
    Chelsea – First half, I would say that is the best I have seen us play for many a season passing, movement, defending kept a high line we were excellent and a bit of quick thinking by Chelsea outdone us – just needed a goalscorer – pity Cisse was away.
    Second half I still thought we did OK.
    If Carver can get the TOON to play they did first half I have no problem giving him the job. Anyway would be a canny birthday present for JC i think he is 50 next week

    On selling Perez – wouldn’t make sense in Ashley selling this winter as Perez improves he will know he will get a lot more for him in the summer

    Looking at it another way, if true. It means that Newcastle is not a dead end club but a club where young players, especially from abroad, can attract the attention of bigger more successful clubs.

    We may not like it but better than the load of dead beat freeloaders on their last big pay cheque which Shepherd favoured.

    Thats like saying Manure want Moyes back as Van Gal has no better stats than he did…or maybe the press will start a rumour that they want Pardew as a Manager – that would make sense now wouldn’t it ?

    I doubt anybody would bid for Perez because of the ‘one season wonder’ syndrome. Perhaps the following season if his form continues to improve.

    By the very definition of a player moving on it means we are infact a dead end club, nothing of note here so let’s move on boys. It’s almost as if your bragging that we can get youngish players with potential or a diamond for pittance then sell them regardless of the effect to the team. Excellent attitude to have. I can hear the fat slug signing you up for pr purposes.

    Don’t know what happened to my smiley face, but yes still your comment is very true.

    Clubs would have been lining up to buy Cisse in his first season but not so in his second. Caveat Emptor I suppose.

    Do not believe the Perez story for 1 second.
    More rubbish newspaper articles intended to disrupt.
    Normally the cited club is Arsenal -every window there’s an Arsenal tale totally invented.

    On this blog,
    each poster must stand or fall by himself 🙂

    But, I see what Slank means: Owen, Kluivert, Viduka, Smith, Butt, Rush, Barnes, we sure have gone that way. These exciting new starlets are a refreshing change.

    Of course, would love to see if a Ronaldinho would be bothered to show some of his magic here… with probably the same results! These geysers now have a good option: USA 😉

    Did you see Carroll’s goal? Andy Gray said he didn’t know he could do that.
    Not asking for him back, just saying congrats lad.

    Utter rubbish. Why would A) Perez go and warm a bench if that behind the likes of RVP, Rooney and Falcao. and B) Why would Utd risk the development of their own young striker who by all accounts has kept higher profile players out of the side so far this season? Oh and C) MA will know that if they big clubs want him now he’ll be worth a lot more than the under £10 million they’ll offer now.

    What some fail to realise is Perez was wanted by Porto and Spanish giants Barca and Madrid but chose to go where he could play more often at a higher level rather than rot in a B team.

    its not half a season it’s the talent the lad has, anyone buying a young lad like him buy them for what can do in years to come not now

    See Percy is not hanging about -just signed Sonogo on loan from Arsenal. Big strapping forward.

    Rooney is seen as a midfielder so he’s already ahead of him

    RVP has just got injured again, having a scan on his ankle.

    Falcao is hit and miss with his fitness and is on loan so doesn’t belong to them,

    Hernandez is not needed and has been told so

    Wilson is young and upcoming, much like Perez.

    makes perfect sense to when you look at it in that way as to why they’d want him

    I think we may have another stalker in our midst. Advising on spectacles, speaking to him after matches and then admitting to writing letters to the king? That or your in love.

    Just out of curiosity, do you have some form of legal document outlining your not to go within 100 yards of your beloved? How utterly vile.

    Step forward everybody’s favourite bragger….

    :
    This blog used to be a right riveting good read. If you had a mind for it, you could blame the boredom input on Sky for providing football to couch potatoes. These so called football experts left the end of the bar and returned home to become keyboard wizards.
    I have to laugh at the notion of some suggesting they hounded Pardew out. They cannot expunge the fact that he left of his own volition; this season, after surmounting a mini injury crisis and six straight wins, five in the League and four successive clean sheets- this is for the football statisticians who endlessly spouted of an imminent Sacking and relegation. I personally thought Pardew should have been sacked after the head butting incident and following the abuse directed at Pellegrini.
    That said I think he did a good job in difficult circumstances with top players leaving in the middle of the season and not being replaced. We should all know that Ashley is the main problem. Despite which Pardew had the basis of a decent squad with a number of young players though inexperienced already looking the business and likely to form the nucleus of a very good team.
    However, if any poster seriously thinks that the business model will now change they really are deluded. Those of us with strong roots in the community where Newcastle United is our team are not so easily
    fooled. It could be argued that the football team is merely a front for Sports Direct Corporate Operations and no longer for the community focus. It was massively disappointing to be at Leicester with around four thousand toon fans to see us just not turn up- Cabella aside.
    I always had time for Pardew, his massive ego and all. Having written to him before the Palace and Spurs game wishing him good luck I was somewhat surprised to receive a letter from him today thanking me for taking the trouble to write. I didn’t mention in my letter that I won’t miss either his press conferences or post match interviews.
    Saturday’s game could be interesting because Southampton tend to employ a counterattacking game as well. We should take the initiative and get on “the front foot”.
