Great News – Sissoko Further Increases His Transfer Value

11:24 pm, Sunday, July 10th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 27 Comments

Moussa Sissoko was again the star man for France in the Euro 2016 final tonight in Paris, which saw Portugal surprisingly win 1-0 in extra time in what was an astonishing and classic smash and grab raid.

Moussa was the best player on the field along with brilliant Portuguese goalkeeper Rui Patrício – and the Frenchman must have added around £10M to his transfer price.

So if Rafa decides to sell him this summer the manager may have more transfer funds than he even needs.

Well Rafa can keep some for January?

Paul Pogba not happy with Moussa Sissoko tonight
Paul will go for £100M and Moussa for £50M this summer?
🙂

If Paul Pogba is worth £100M then what is Moussa worth given his last four performances for France?

Rafa will hold out for big money for the big Frenchman and for Gini Wijnaldum too – and only sell them for ridiculous prices.

As the Newcastle manager has already made clear – the two “stars” helped us get relegated by not turning up in too many games and therefore should help get us back to the Premier League.

That’s rather than taking a hike just as quickly as they can – so to speak.

🙂

Well that’s unless it’s within Newcastle’s best interests to sell them if we can get some huge offers coming in this summer, but it will be on Newcastle’s terms and certainly not theirs.

Maybe PSG or Manchester City – who often pay daft prices for their players – will become interested?

Very pleased that Moussa can potentially bring in many more millions to Newcastle’s coffers this summer by turning up and playing at his best for France tonight.

    Get sissoko tae . . . France!

    It’s amazing how he turns on his game whenever it’s in HIS best interest. Makes me sick. I really hope that if we sell him he goes for £30m+ . Though part of me wants to see what Rafa can do with him. Maybe he can get the best out of him.

  • 3 Belfast // Jul 10, 2016 at 11:36 PM

    I would love to know how much Ed and others would pay for him if he played for Aston Villa and we wanted to sign him ??

  • 4 bettyswallocks // Jul 10, 2016 at 11:38 PM

    Jib……… If you’re around, or anyone else that might know.There is an article on newsnow in the express showing all the Twitter comments about Sissoko. There is one tweet saying he has a touch like a trampoline when he plays for us but more importantly one from Ashley who tweeted Pogba100m and Sissoko twice as good, over to you Jose.

    I was just wondering if that is likely to be a genuine tweet from Ashley as I don’t use Twitter and therefore don’t know the validity of those tweets.

  • 5 Belfast // Jul 10, 2016 at 11:46 PM

    Fact is he’s desperate to leave and the buyers know it. Players hold the power in most of these circumstances and will pull all sorts of strokes to get their way.

    And the size of fee for Pogba is ridiculous but it’s being determined by his consistency and performances at club level for the last 3-4 seasons where he’s been one of the best midfielders in Europe.

    Sissoko couldn’t lace his boots so it’s really a silly comparison if you ask me.

  • 6 Mister Tuff // Jul 10, 2016 at 11:50 PM

    Portugal completed a smash and grab raid there – France had chances and fluffed them.
    Overall tournament was ok – not stellar -no real future superstars on display/exciting forward play.
    As one of the commentators remarked too many teams were prepared not to lose rather than go out for wins.

    Sisoko will be away on his holis now -wonder when we’ll find out what is happening to him.
    Hope we sell him for mega money and buy some more consistent players.

  • 7 Belfast // Jul 10, 2016 at 11:57 PM

    Being realistic we could’ve persuaded somebody to pay 15 million tops before the euros imo he’s probably added a few million on too that now. I’d be very surprised if we got more than 20 to be honest, and if we do he’ll probably be off to China.

    I don’t believe anyone on here would pay more than 20 million for him by the way lol Not even Ed or Cyprus 🙂

  • 8 bettyswallocks // Jul 10, 2016 at 11:57 PM

    Belfast……. I agree, but was just wondering how we know if Ashley actually tweeted that or if it was a hoax tweet.

  • 9 Munster Mag // Jul 10, 2016 at 11:58 PM

    Not for the first time, people think rafa will get sissoko to play at his top level. Wrong. Just like rafa wont get wini to perform ( as wini has shown). Sell these guys asap, because they want more than nufc. Do u think the french mgr made sissoko play well today, or sissoko’s vanity? Hmm i wonder. Take 25 mill and be glad to get rid of this fraudster ( copyright munster about 3 yrs ago)

    Just hurry up and shift this sweaty knacker out for chuffs sakes.

    Give the man a Bigger paid contract.
    Give part of Jonjo Shelvey BIG WAGES to the man.
    Forget about Jonjo turning good in the Championship.

    He can’t even get in any lineup if Cheick Toetie stays or better still get in a younger D/M.

  • 12 NoahJ // Jul 11, 2016 at 12:05 AM

    the fact that I still want him gone after his brilliant Euro 2016 just demonstrates how awful he was for us this past season.

    Based on the current market (e.g. Ibe for £15m), the fact that he has 3 years left on his deal, and off the back of an excellent tournament, I expect at least £25m for him

  • 14 bettyswallocks // Jul 11, 2016 at 12:10 AM

    If that tweet from Ashley is genuine and if we haven’t already put Sissoko on price then I think we are all going to be in for a big shock when the asking price is revealed.
    Even Shearer was restrained in his condemnation of Sissokotonight. He just jokingly said it wes his twin brother that had been playing for us. He’ll have been told not to slag him off as there’s a move on to maximise the price we get for him.

  • 15 expatmag // Jul 11, 2016 at 12:34 AM

    BETTY

    I doubt very much a bloke kike Ashley has the time or the inclination to bother himself writing shyte on twitter.

  • 16 bettyswallocks // Jul 11, 2016 at 12:47 AM

    Expat……….. That’s what I thought but it’s in the Express with his photo
    on the Twitter page. I just don’t know how to verify that stuff. I still think the greedy bastard won’t be frightened to ask silly money though.

  • 17 Munster Mag // Jul 11, 2016 at 1:24 AM

    Pogba remonstrating with sissoko? Shud be other way around. 100 million?? Wonder what a fading ronaldo is worth?

  • 18 Geordiedownunder // Jul 11, 2016 at 1:35 AM

    The games are over (Euros), let the games begin (Sissoko’s future)

  • 19 chicousa // Jul 11, 2016 at 2:22 AM

    Ed posted the pic above from today’s finals match, where Pogba was glaring and yelling at Sissoko. I have not seen any replays but was curious if Pogba was blaming Moussa for poor defense on the Portugal goal, or did Sissoko blame Pogba and the later was reacting to criticism? Anyone know what was going on there?

  • 20 NUFCPaul // Jul 11, 2016 at 2:37 AM

    Nice to see the majority of fans on here wanting rid of Sissoko. Hopefully we’ll be shot of him in the next month or two. Don’t really want to see him back at the club. I’m sure the phone calls will start to come in first thing on Monday morning to enquire about his transfer fee. Milk ’em all Rafa!

  • 21 NUFCPaul // Jul 11, 2016 at 2:41 AM

    davis_toons – cheers for that link. It’s hilarious seeing the Gooner fans clamoring to Sissoko’s signing. Just wait until they see how he does after a month or two when he stops being arsed to play for them too. And we’ll be laughing all the way to the bank! Fools!

  • 22 hibbitt // Jul 11, 2016 at 6:13 AM

    i smell mr bishops handy work with that tweet

  • 23 Ron Knee // Jul 11, 2016 at 6:40 AM

    “For a while Moussa Sissoko was in bullocking form, three times lifting his head and simply stampeding through the challenges towards goal in rugby league style, hands grappling helplessly at his shirt, nudges and niggles brushed aside. But he is, in the end, still Moussa Sissoko.”

  • 24 Jail for Ashley // Jul 11, 2016 at 7:06 AM

    I hate shyte jobs where you can’t blog all day 🙁

  • 25 giimps // Jul 11, 2016 at 7:57 AM

    Chicousa,
    Looks to me like Progba doesn’t like or doesn’t rate moussa, he very rarely passes to him if ever, ( I’d love to see the stats for the passes between them) ,it looks like pig a is shouting in moussas face after the goal but I haven’t seen any replay that shows where mousse is.
    Progba was closer to Eder and there were 2 other players close to him too but he brushed them off……loris was out of position and seemed to go down for the save in slow motion……..pogba has had a poor tournament and was it seemed, taking his frustration out on the player he thinks is to blame……no doubt de champs will put him right in the dressing room……..interesting how moussa just let Progra shout in his face…..I’m pretty sure I would have reacted.

  • 26 martoon // Jul 11, 2016 at 8:06 AM

    giimps @25 – I also have noticed that Pogba never passes to Sissoko. I thought it was because he didn’t trust him with the ball but actually after that outburst I think there might be more to it – there definitely seems to be no love lost between them.

  • 27 Owldman // Jul 11, 2016 at 9:48 AM

    Sissoko & Ginny want to desert us after they helped get us relegated , now Ginny is pleading with us not to price him out of a transfer to Spurs, we must tell them they only leave on our terms or they stay and fight get us back in the Premiership.
