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

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
