One of the problems we’ve has this summer is that we haven ‘t been able to sell some players early in the transfer window which gives us the money to bring in some players.
Last summer we sold Andros Townsend, and Gini Wijnaldum and those two players alone gave Rafa another £38M to spend in last summer’s transfer market.
No such luck this summer.
But there is news today in the Star that we could be seeing some players leave Newcastle in the next few days.
The report identifies Emmanuel Riviere, Massadio Haidara, Tim Krul and Jack Colback as the players who are now likely to leave Newcastle in the next several days.
But no more details on which clubs the players will join or anything else for that matter.although we expect Tim Krul to join Portuguese giants Benfica and that would be a good move for Tim, who has been a loyal servant at Newcastle for 12 years.
We do expect Tim Krul to join Portuguese giants Benfica and that would be a good move for Tim, who has been a loyal servant at Newcastle for 12 long years.
Loyal servant Tim Krul set to finally leave Newcastle
If that happens, it would be an excellent time for us and allow us to bring in up to four news players – including 27-year-old Stoke City striker Joselu who we finally signed this morning.
We’re not sure how much Newcastle will get in for those four players but probably £5M each for Tim Krul and Jack Colback.
If we are paid in cash, we will be able o use the money to buy news players.
Maybe we can even afford the 13.4M for Arsenal striker Lucas Perez.
What do you think?
