Valencia Challenge Newcastle For Peru International

There are reports in Portugal that Valencia have joined the race for Sporting Lisbon forward Andre Carrillo, who is a versatile forward and can play on either wing or as a withdrawn striker or out-and-out striker.

Andre Carrillo – Newcastle will try to sign player in summer

Newcastle have been linked heavily with the 23 year-old this year,  and there were reports that we had a bid turned down for the lad in the January transfer window.

The Magpies seem to be going after some good players in the summer, so we can expect some top clubs to also be interested in our players, but we signed Ayoze Perez when some top clubs were after him last summer, and hopefully we can do the same thing this summer.

Certainly there should be  money available once Newcastle release the financial results of last year.

A Bola reported in late January that it was doubtful at that time that Newcastle would be bringing in any reinforcements in January, and they were right about that.

They reported yesterday that Valencia are looking at Carrillo and in fact since Singapore Billionaire Peter Lim bought the club last October, Valencia are going to try to become one of the best sides in Spain and even challenge Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Wonder if he ever took a look at Newcastle before deciding to buy Valencia?

Andre’s contract runs out next summer, so Newcastle will be hoping they can sign the forward this summer for around £8M or even less than that, which is what A Bola says they bid for the player in January.

The 21 times capped Peru International has played 145 times with 15 goals and 31 assists for the Lisbon club,  after joining them from Peru First Division club Alianza Lima in the summer of 2011 on a five year contract.

Andre has played well in this season’s Champions League competition and especially in the games against Chelsea – so his stature has grown in Portugal.

Sporting Lisbon are short of money and Newcastle may be able to get a reasonable deal done for Carrillo in the summer.

We hope we can do that.

    While I understand your sentiment the contrasting argument would be that ‘real’ fans go through thick and thin. If the club did suddenly become successful you would be unable to justify your own return to the stands.

    If you are in a relationship you can only hold a person accountable for what they say they are, not what you want them to be.

    In the 2012-13 season Pardew said our target was eighth. We finished 16th.

    Towards the end of the season. Mr P took to ridiculously arguing that eighth was never a “target”. Just an “aspiration.” No need then to apologise to all those who bought tickets believing it was a target.

    Why did he and his boss get off the hook?

    It’s because critics didn’t hold them to account for not hitting their target. They tried to hold them to account for not improving on the fifth place finish of the season before. This was easily shrugged off, as it was not what they had promised their customers.
    It also distracted the customers away from what might have been justifiable complaints about under-shooting their target by so far, to an annoyance with those they accused of unfairly demanding something that was never on offer.

    You say tenth is no achievement. Is even less of an achievement if it is missed. Nothing is going to happen overnight. So there is time to build a “bang to rights” case built on promises made to paying fans that were not kept. They have to see and accept that, and browbeating them won’t speed that up.

    Al Capone was not taken off the streets for his murders and robberies. They got him on his tax returns.

    Glad to hear it. Like the kids names btw. Out of interest have you heard of a tv show called Vikings? It’s on the history channel but isn’t a documentary or history show. It’s more drama intertwined with guts and gore. Currently into its third season. I love it. His wife is delicious lol.


    The club will never be held to account. Over anything. That’s not how the slug operates. Any defiance is immediately crushed – paper and individuals banned.

    Us fans? An annoyance they choose not to listen too never mind acknowledge the existence of (for those who point to the fan’s forum – a requirement handed down from FIFA and a shambolic one at that). We do not matter to the club’s future it seems. If he could rid the club of us fans and play behind closed doors so to speak he’d take it in a heart beat I have no doubt.

    Lindidfarne. I totally agree fans should go through thick and thin to support their club . I have done it for 45 Years so nowt wrong in that . However , when you look and realise there is no light at the end of the tunnel because of our owners intention of crippling our once great club leaving us without a shroud of doubt that we will NEVER be great as long as he is he , i for one can’t accept that . He is only here coz 50,000 want a day out and pay him to wreck our dreams . If you are not bothered , that is your prorogative .

    Perez is def out the door come summer you would have to wonder will ever get the kind of ac transfer fee ever again bcoz as soon as a player shows promise and buck in profit can be made he’ll be sold no doubt very short sighted forward planning.
