That’s after the manager, with the help of Lee Charnley, completed their third and fourth signings of the summer this week – Jacob Murphy from Norwich and Javier Manquillo from Atletico Madrid.
Two good signings for around £15M initially.
There’s a little bit of a soap opera going on at the moment with Bordeaux striker Diego Rolan, who has met with Fulham twice relating to a transfer but he’s holding out on signing for the London club because he would prefer a move to a Premier League club.
Like Newcastle for example.
24-year-old Bordeaux forward Diego Rolan
Newcastle have been linked with this player for around three years now and for £5M in today crazy transfer market he would be worth that.
While he’s not a prolific goalscorer he’s a very good technical player with 24 full caps for Uruguay and we’re sure Rafa could make him into a better player at Newcastle.
Diego is also versatile and can play almost anywhere along the front line.
Newcastle have been linked with the 24-year-old this summer and it would be a very good time for Rafa to make a move for the player, because we’re pretty sure he would be delighted to sign for Newcastle.
Bordeaux have agreed on the £5M fee with Fulham so it seems that Newcastle could get a very good addition to their side for what are peanuts in today’s transfer market.
We hope Rafa goes after Diego but he will also need to bring a top experienced striker this summer.
It’s looking like the Newcastle manager is willing to sell Aleksander Mitrovic if he can get around £16M for him, which is today’s transfer prices is quite cheap for Mitro.
