Exclusive Report – Rafa Wants Two More Forwards Before Transfer Deadline


TEAMtalk are reporting today on what they call an exclusive that Rafa Benitez is hoping to boost his attacking force in the final day of this summer’s transfer window.

There are now about 26 hours to go before the transfer window slams shut at 5:00pm tomorrow afternoon.

The report is that Rafa wants Liverpool striker Danny Ings at Newcastle and also Wolves Portuguese International Ivan Cavaleiro.

Southampton and Crystal Palace are keen on Ings but Liverpool want £20M plus for their striker who has had two serious knee injuries in the three years he’s been on Merseyside.

The report is that Newcastle want an initial loan deal with an option to buy.

And the other news is that Rafa is also interested in Portuguese international winger Ivan Cavaleiro.

24-year-old Portuguese International winger Ivan Cavaleiro

The 24-year-old signed for Wolves two years ago on a five-year deal from Monaco for a fee thought to be around £7M.

Cavaleiro has played for all the Portuguese youth sides, and he has two full caps.

He played 14 times for the Portuguese U21 side and scored 7 goals.

With Wolves recently signing winger Adama Traore from Middlesbrough, his future now looks uncertain, and it seems Newcastle are looking to buy him.

Newcastle could also try to bring him in on loan with an option to buy next summer.

Newcastle are allowed to have loans of one player from up to two Premier League clubs, and we have Kenedy on loan from Chelsea at the moment.

So we cannot take both Ings, and Cavaleiro on loan – only one of them – and we need a striker so we assume Danny Ings would be the priority.

But we could also buy Cavaleiro outright – but sorry – silly me – I’m dreaming again.

Ashley wouldn’t allow that because it means spending some of the club’s money.

Time is running out, but if we can get one of these players in, it will help Rafa with his attacking options for next season.

One of them would be a good acquisition in addition to a center-back and a left-back.

Comments welcome.

    Newcastle United are closing in on signing Tom Hardy for the new Christmas movie, A black and white Christmas story, Tom will play the lead role of Ebenezer Ashley Scrooge, while Javier Bardem will play Rafa in the role of Bob Cratchit who only want the best for his son Tiny Tim, Tiny Tim will be played by Newcastle United FC. News just in, January 2019 Newcastle United will be making another Toon Army Transfer Movie, Javier Bardem has agreed to play Rafa Benitez again in the Toon Army remake of A Few Good Men. I love Toon Army productions they seem to be making some great movies this year. May 2019, I have heard rumbles that they may release a true classic, Death of a Salesman sorry wrong title, Death of a Football Club. Oh, Mike if only you would see that playing the villain isn’t cool and playing a great leader that back’s his Army is far more appealing to the viewer.
