Spanish International On Newcastle’s Radar


Newcastle this year have been linked with Malaga’s Spanish International 22 year-old forward Juanmi, who gained his first full cap for Spain  against Holland at the Amsterdam Arena on March 31st, after Chelsea’s Diego Costa withdrew from that game with a hamstring injury.

Juanmi – Malaga’s 22 year-old Spanish International

Juanmi is well thought of in Spain and he was a member of the team who won two consecutive UEFA European Under-19 Championships, and he scored  two goals in the 2011 competition in Romania.

He’s played for the U17, U18 Spanish sides and made 19 appearances for the U19 side before making his debut in March.

JUanmi (full name Juan Miguel Jimenez Lopez) can play on either wing and also as a withdrawn striker, and for Spain against Holland he played as the main striker in March, and looked sharp in the 2-0 defeat.

Juanmi has had a good season for Malaga who are 8th in La Liga, and in 33 league games he’s scored 8 goals, and has been at his home town club since he was a youngster and came through the Malaga Youth Academy and also played for the Malaga B team, as he worked his way through the ranks.

With the interest of some big clubs in the youngster, Malaga weren’t daft and signed him to a new deal through 2018, but the release clause in that new contract is said to be €7M – which is around £5M – not a bad price for such a talented youngster.

Whether Newcastle will follow up their interest in the youngster will depend on whether we are still in the Premier League on Sunday night.

But if we are then Juanmi could well be one of the new players to join Newcastle in the summer, which should be a massive rebuilding summer for the Tyneside club, after the travails and disasters of this year.

We hope that’s the case.

    Imagine the shame of getting dumped by WRONGA.

    That’s how low we’ve sunk. Even their shitty, in the mud brand are concerned about US.

    You couldn’t make it up. I feel like crying.

    All speculation. Any quality players who are up and coming get wasted due to our poor training.

    Schteve’s on his way then, should we stay up, or maybe even if we drop.

    Not held in the esteem he once was, regarded as the best coach in the land when under SAF (not by himself either unlike somebody), but still a hands-on coach of good repute and a million times more respectable Carver and not a knuckledragger like him. If he can bring his team with him and oust our carbuncle of coaches, even better. Going by Mash’s past it’d be a relatively rational appointment and I’d receive him better than anybody else he’s appointed barring KK. Small mercies.

    Let’s wait and see.
