Newcastle have managed to get one more player over the line today and that’s now two signings in just three days. and fans seem to think young Javier Manquillo could become a bargain buy down the road.
Fans think Manquillo could become a bargain at just £4.5M if fellow Spaniard Rafa Benitez can weave his magic with the player who has played for all the Spanish youth sides including 7 times for the U21 side.
Rafa has continued to sign players who want to come to Newcastle and who also have something to prove.
Javier Manquillo – happy to be at Newcastle United
With Javier having a difficult time of it at Sunderland last season – who didn’t – then he has something to prove and Rafa even pointed that out in his comments on the Newcastle website.
We think this lad could be just fine and it’s obvious Newcastle fans will give him every chance to be a huge success on Tyneside – and why not?
Here are some typical tweets coming from the Geordie fans after the signing today.
Looking forward to seeing Javier Manquillo at #NUFC next season

Manquillo is a talent. Lots of room for improvement but £4.5m is a very good deal for a player with premier league experience. #nufc

Everyone judging Manquillo lad hasn’t even played a game for us yet. Rafa is a manager who can get the best out of him #NUFC
