We don’t mind too much if Moussa Sissoko leaves Newcastle this summer – in fact because of his attitude – it may be a good thing that he leaves and sees what it’s like for a world-class player to be on the bench at a really big club.
That could happen if Juventus sell their young star Paul Pogba to Manchester United for £100M or more and could replace him with the great Moussa Sissoko of Newcastle United.
Moussa Sissoko – Juventus interested
The news today being reported in Italy is that Paul Pogba wants the move to the Red Devils and the wages he will get are said to be around £200K/week – which is around £10M/year – good money if you can get it.
And Juventus are also said to be interested in Moussa Sissoko, but it’s the Italian press surmising who could possibly replace Pogba.
The news is from Gazzetta dello Sport that Juventus may want both Nemanja Matic and Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko to replace Paul Pogba.
If Juventus get £100M for Pogba what’s £35M for Sissoko and £25M for Matic – which is what Gazzetta dello Sport are estimating the transfer fees to be.
Cheap at the price and they still have £30M left over (for a party?).
And the other news is that Liverpool have liked negotiating with Newcastle so much for Gini Wijnaldum that they are also said to be interested in Moussa.
So maybe a double deal could be done and we understand Mike Ashley wants just £62M up front in cool cash and the double deal is done.
Newcastle are said to be trying to get some players in part exchange for Georginio – and they include 29 year-old Brazilian defensive midfield star Lucas.
The Chronicle are reporting Newcastle are sticking to their guns and dictating the terms under which they will sell the Dutch International to Liverpool.
That could be good practice for then selling Moussa to Liverpool for a cool £35M.
If any club doesn’t come up with £27M for Wijnaldum or £35M for Sissoko and pay up front in cash then the players will not be sold.
Sounds good to us.
And Gini Wijnaldum is in the Newcastle squad for the friendly at Doncaster Rovers tonight.
