Moussa Sissoko has been at it again and he has talked about the many clubs who are interested in signing him and the many exclusive clubs he may join – in his own words – a more exclusive club.
That means more exclusive than little Newcastle United – his current club.
Moussa Sissoko – in action for France in Euro 2016
This is what Sissoko told Foot Mercato today:
“I still hope to have the chance to join a more exclusive club. Now we are negotiating with Newcastle.”
“My agent has had discussions with the club. They are open to a departure,” “We are in discussions. We’ll see what happens.”
“Yes, some clubs have come. A lot of clubs. Now, I expect and hope it will lead to something good. “
“They discussed with the club, with my agent. We’ll see what happens.”
“I know what I want. Where shall I go? I do not know yet. There are discussions that are ongoing with the leaders, with my agent. “
“The best decision we take. All clubs are advanced. We’ll see.”
“Who would not be flattered with that interest,” “Real Madrid is one or the best clubs in the world. “For now, I am still a Newcastle player.”
“I wait. And if it’s Real Madrid, so much the better.”
“It’s true that Real Madrid is hard to refuse. But as I said, there will be plenty of things that come into account.”
“We will have to think about. I will take a decision with my agent.”
Moussa is his own best fan and started his own fan club – he was the first signed up member who paid his dues in full.
Well that’s the rumor anyway.
And he’s probably disappointed that only £35M is being asked for him by Newcastle United – he’ll think he’s worth more than that.
But with Newcastle’s very poor showing at Fulham last night, Rafa Benitez will not be willing to let him go for anything less than £35M in cash.
