There’s news in Turkey that we have already bid twice for 27-year-old Cape Verde international Garry Rodrigues, who plays for Galatasaray in the Turkish Super Lig.
We reportedly offered £6M last summer and then £7M in January and there are reports that Newcastle will go back in with an offer of £10M this summer.
The player himself is very keen to come to Newcastle and he has said the deal will be done for less than €15M (£13.2M).
Rafa will want players coming in early this summer after thee successive poor transfer windows.
The gaffer has also said and he wants the transfer system changed at Newcastle to be more aggressive and our transfers to be done more quickly.
Thank goodness for that!.
With all that in mind, we wonder if an agreement has already been made with Galatasaray to buy the player for an already agreed to fee this summer?
Garry Rodrigues – keen to join Newcastle
That could be the case and the Turkish club will show a big profit on the player who arrived at Galatasaray 13 months ago from Greek club PAOK for just £3.3M
Rodrigues has played for five clubs in his career so far, and he can add some creativity on the wings which is one thing Rafa is looking to improve the Newcastle side.
Newcastle could get Rodrigues for between £10M and £13.2M and we should do that deal early this summer.
We hope the deal has already been agreed.
