It seems that Rafa Benitez is relying on his old contacts in Spain to bring in the players he needs this summer.
Two of the players of the five already signed are Spanish there’s news today in Spanish outlet Mi Otra Liga.com that the Newcastle manager claiming Rafa Benitez has made contact with the agent of 22-year-old Argentine forward Angel Correa.
It seems Rafa would like to bring the 7 times capped Argentine International to Newcastle this summer and certainly, he would be an exciting signing for Newcastle.
He currently plays for Atletico Madrid, and he’s been playing in Spain for three years since signing on from San Lorenzo in the summer of 2014 for €7.5M on a five-year contract with the Madrid side.
Rafa simply had]s to bring some class into the squad during the rest of the summer transfer window and this lad would be an excellent signing for Newcastle.
Since he’s been at Atletico Angel has played in 83 games with 16 goals and 15 assists, and that’s not a bad return.
Correa’s agent also represents 26-year-old Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez, and we were linked with Lucas yesterday along with Arsenal’s 28-year-old Spanish striker Lucas Perez.
Maybe Newcastle would be able to bring in both players (Correa and Vasquez) to Newcastle, but that would be an unbelievable coup if Rafa were able to do that.
But we also must remember that Rafa is a world-class manager, and he can attract some outstanding players to Newcastle.
That’s especially true when he tells them his ambition is to transform Newcastle United into one of Europe’s top clubs in the foreseeable future.
