Rafa – Newcastle Are In A Good Position To Sign Kenedy Permanently

22-year-old Kenedy talked about his future in a Brazilian website and said he wanted to go back to Chelsea and win some trophies.

That didn’t sound too positive for Newcastle fans who would love him to sign on permanently at Newcastle next summer.

One of the problems Newcastle have with that is we don’t know what Chelsea would want for him if they do decide to sell him.

If he plays really well again for Newcastle this season the price will go up.

If he doesn’t the price will go down – but if that happens (which is unlikely) Rafa may not want to bring him in permanently.

This is what Rafa has said about the situation in the Chronicle today:

“My experience with players when it is so early in the season: leave them just playing well and afterwards you have plenty of time to talk about the future.”

“We can be saying: ‘If he is doing well, maybe he will go back to Chelsea’.”

“But Chelsea may sign three players who can play in his position as well. “

“Then he will see he has no chance of playing there and stays here.”

“Still, I think it is too early to talk about that but in his head, the main thing is to just keep playing well.”

“At the moment it is a loan but we have a very good relationship with Chelsea, with him and his agent so we are in a good position.”

We have a full season ahead of us, so it’s far too early to talk about it – that’s true.

But Kenedy could become very attached to Newcastle and Rafa before next May, and it’s possible he could be on Newcastle’s books when the Premier League starts next season.

That would be something.

    Funny how we have such a good relationship with Chelsea after we keep on beating them.

    Maybe the defeat this season was part of the negotiations

    I think we are very lucky to have not spent 25m on kenedy. That would have been a disaster seeing his performance this season. All of us will be up in arms against benetiz spending that sort of money on utter sh*t like kenedy. Lol

    Rafa.. if you haven’t realised by now, let me explain. We aren’t in a good position to sign Kenedy because Ashley won’t pay £20 million for him.
