If Newcastle can get two good strikers in this summer, it seemed very likely that we would sell Papiss Cisse, and there’s news today in the Mail today that Newcastle may do just that.
But we assume it depends on Newcastle bringing in two top strikers first, and we’ve been linked with the likes of Bas Dost, Charlie Austin, Juanmi and Saido Berahino among others.
Papiss Cisse – Newcastle willing to sell the Senegal striker
If we get two new strikers in then we would also have Ayoze Perez and Manu Riviere – who we think will only get better in his second season on Tyneside, after a very difficult maiden season on Tyneside.
The thing with Emmanuel is that he missed lots of chances chances, but at least he got into position for the chances, and it’s nothing that a few goals will not solve and give him that confidence he obviously lacked last season.
Papiss Cisse was interviewed a few days ago, and he was very positive and upbeat about Newcastle, and looking forward to next season.
Papiss still has two years left on his Newcastle contract, but the good news is that his knee has now fully healed from the fracture he sustained last year, and at the end of the season he didn’t even have a limp.
Papiss would again be fully fit at the start of next season, and the Senegal striker would be able to add to the 41 goals he’s scored in 109 appearances for Newcastle so far.
We wouldn’t mind at all if Newcastle keep Papiss next season, and we suppose we will if Newcastle cannot get two good strikers in – so it remains to be seen if Papiss will still be with us come September.
