The Northern Echo is reporting today that there is potential problem with a potential loan deal for Loic Remy of Chelsea, and that´s because Newcastle are not interested in signing Remy on a permanent basis because of his age and his high wage demands.
Loic must be getting huge wages at Chelsea and if he moved he would want a similar wage packet, which Newcastle would be unwilling to pay.
Loic Remy inaction for Newcastle two years ago
We´re not exactly sure what the problem is exactly, other than Ashley doesn´t like to sanction loan deals that don´t have an option to make the move permanent.
So in this case why not just do the loan deal – because Loic wouldn´t want to join us in any case – we have to remember he´s already turned us down twice.
It’s very likely that once Chelsea finalize the deal for Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato, they will let Loic move out on loan.
And having Loic on loan for six months would be a great solution for Newcastle and for Loic – because he would be motivated to do well so he can make the French squad for the Euro 2016 Championships in France in June.
And he would be playing for a club that has a very high profile in France and the reports are he would be willing to come to the north-east on loan.
Sounds good to us.
