Newcastle have been interested in 27-year-old Galatasaray winger Garry Rodrigues since last summer and we had a £7M offer for him turned down by his club in January.
There has been a steady stream of news coming out of Turkey that Newcastle are expected to go back in for the player this summer with at least a £10M bid.
And the player himself has talked about the bid to go to Newcastle being less than €15M (£13.4M) – which gave us some hope that he was indeed coming to Newcastle.
Garry Rodrigues – two Milan clubs interested
His agent has been talking to Voetbal International about his client’s future and said this:
“Garry is improving every day with Galatasaray but I think there’s a chance he could go to either Inter or Milan.”
“There are however, too many people who want to manipulate players.”
Rodrigues has been in excellent form for his club this season and in 29 total appearances for Galatasaray, the winger/striker has scored 7 goals and assists.
And going after this class of player we should expect some big clubs to also be after them.
Unfortunately, the interest of the two Milan clubs will tend to raise the price of Rodrigues way above £13.4M.
