Newcastle Will Sell Top Youngster This Summer – Here’s Why

There is news this morning that Manchester United are seriously going to try to bring Newcastle’s 21 year-old Spanish U21 striker Ayoze Perez to Old Trafford this summer.

And when you consider that Manchester City and Arsenal are also reported to be very keen on the youngster,  that could develop a bidding war for the youngster,  and when that happens the transfer fee usually goes up.

Mike Ashley thinks running a football club is all about making money (at the expense of the playing squad), and after buying Perez from Tenerife for £1.6M last summer, the English Billionaire will likely think that a £10M offer is something he would have to accept.

That’s because it would be an £8.4M profit on the player over the last 12 months, and that’s £700K a month profit, and that’s the way Ashley thinks – only about money.

So if it’s true that the two Manchester clubs and Arsenal are all interested in Perez, we don’t really see how Newcastle will be able to keep the youngster on Tyneside, even though it’s clear he wants to stay another year at least.

John Carver has said Ayoze will not leave the club this summer, but the head coach doesn’t have the last say on players coming in or going out – Alan Pardew found that out.

It’s Mike Ashley who decides, and for an £8.4M profit in 12 months it will see Mike Ashley selling our very promising striker in the summer.

But before that, Newcastle still have nine games to play in the league and our squad has been further decimated with Coloccini yesterday adding to the misery when he was sent off in the second half, and now he is likely to be suspended for three games.

Newcastle have only one experienced center-back available right now  – Mike Williamson – and a good question is how was that ever allowed to happen?

    How do you know what and how Ashley thinks… we NEED A COACH man, haven’t had one for ages.The MA battle can wait till a dumb billionaire (one who is willing to sink in a very large chunk of his fortune plus take abuse when things aren’t working) is born. Which, excepting Forest Gump, is rare.

    Poor Carver is picking up the mess that your favourite manager left behind.

    Anyway: we could conceivably get 0-1 points from the next five games! And, Arsenal is traditionally our worst game. At least it’s at home.

    Get on yer bike Perez

    This club is a circus and not fit enough for most things at the moment. It certainly isn’t fit enough for a talent like Perez.

    At this rate there is only 6 or 7 in the squad worth keeping and they are all likely wanting to be away P D Q. So not much left. For that not to happen, Ashley will have to show some ambition and splash the cash, but overcoming his miserliness will be his hardest battle. If he doesn’t spend and show some ambition for the club, he will consign us to the lower leagues. Newcastle have hit the bottom !

    If we sell Perez thats it had enough. Football is suppose to bring pleasure to be peoples lives, not misery. He’s the only shining light in this time of darkness. God knows why Carver has benched him over the past few games, it was clear that he was isolated playing upfront by himself. So what does he do, plays 2 upfront but neither Perez.

    @Cyprus You have said that we need a proper coach, a big YES to that Carver is just another yes man for bloated one you then go on to say that MA isn’t the major problem and that no buyer would be interested in buying the TOON because of the supporters wish not to be taken a lend off by MA and have tried to vent their anger at his disgraceful way he is running wor club if Rangers can oust him so can we.

    ASHLEY OUT!!!!!!!

    If anyone is doing anything to persuade Perez his future lies elsewhere, it is Carver. Playing second fiddle to Riviere must be galling for such a talented kid. Carver is all about protecting youngsters but Perez is far, far better than the usual NUFC academy dross and everyone else can see that.
    Might as well blood some youngsters wherever possible between now and May. Nothing else to play for.

    Agree Shot Bru. Would like to see this kid go to a decent club if I’m honest. Seems like a really good lad and has talent. Wasted in this poisonous environment. Gives Graham Carr a chance to sign someone else to replace him and make a few more quid on the side. And we all want dear old Graham to retire in the lap of luxury don’t we.

    Like all our previous half decent players he will go if someone offers the right money, we know that. My concern, and I think I may be shot down here by a lot of people is, Carr. Is he really as good as we all think he is? We talk about the obvious gems like Cabaye, but for every Cabaye there are Riviere, Gouffron, Cabella and the Argintine guy who i cant even remember his name plus the bullets we dodged like De Jong, Gomis who we had offers of £10m for. I hope I am wrong and GC comes up with the goods in the summer. Fingers crossed.

    Ashley also knows Perez could easily be worth 20 million in a year or two, not going this summer. Although, he has been run to the ground in the second half of the season due to having no talent around him. Shame, shame, shame….

    Sissoko… still can’t play CM… to all his fans who believe he can

    This is standard policy for the Ashley regime. I am afraid that quality football or achievement is no longer the purpose of NUFC. Players are to be, and will be, regarded in the same manner as Sports Direct stock in shops – a meat market alongside displays of sportswear. This will be the hallmark of our club until we are rid of Ashley, Charnley and the brown noses in the dressing room.
