Moussa Sissoko has been talking to beIN Sports and he seems to have changed his tune just a little bit, and is now saying he wants to play in major competitions, but with his current club Newcastle United.
Moussa Sissoko – happy at Newcastle
Moussa had a very quiet game for us in the great 3-0 win at Hull City on Saturday, when Hull’s misplaced passes saw Newcastle pounce on the mistakes, and score three goals from those three Hull errors.
All three goals were expertly taken with Remy Cabella getting his first goal for the club, Sammy Ameobi scoring a wonder goals from 30 yards out, and Gouffran getting his second goal in two games.
Yoan’s goal came after failing to score for 40 games, before he scored a lucky goal against Southampton just over two weeks ago, and the Frenchman now has a second goal this season.
Sissoko has made it clear earlier this month that he supported Arsenal as a youngster, and he has described them as his dream club, and just for good measure he has also praised PSG – saying an offer from them would be hard to turn down.
So after ensuring he has communicated to both those top clubs that he is interested in a move, he has now talked about how happy he is at Newcastle,
This is what he has told beIN Sports:
“Arsenal made me dream when I was a youngster. Patrick Vieira was my idol. I saw myself in him,” “You will have to ask my agent if PSG are interested in me, but for now I’m a Newcastle player.”
I am happy at the club and I want to play in major competitions and I want to do it with this team.”
It seems that the 25 year-old has been taking lessons in diplomacy, so there’s a statement that would suggest he even wants to stay at Newcastle, and help us win some major competitions.
Moussa is talking about Europe when he mentions major competitions, so at least he and the club agree on that.
The FA Cup and League Cup are competitions that Newcastle seem to want to get out of each season, rather than try to win, if the team selection is anything to go by.
If a big enough offer comes if for Moussa Sissoko in the summer he will leave Newcastle, we all know that will be the case with owner Mike Ashley.
The good news is that the transfer fee on his head is reported to be as much as £25M, so few clubs would be interested in the Frenchman at that price.
And by the time he is worth that amount of money, Newcastle should be back in the Champions League again.
