There doesn’t seem to have been much changed over the last three years at Newcastle.
When players have good seasons, they immediately think they can do better at some other club.
That’s happened with Ayoze Perez this season and this year he’s been on fire for Newcastle and has 12 goals for Newcastle.
And what is he talking Bout?
It’s not about staying at Newcastle and helping the team move up the league, but it’s that now may be a good time for a change of clubs for the 25-year-old.
Ayoze Perez – wants to leave Newcastle
Ayoze is showing great interest in any club that wants him.
It seems there are a number of clubs in the Premier League who may be interested in him – Tottenham and West Ham seem to be two of them.
Spurs were reported to have almost signed him a few years ago, and the Champions League finalists are reported to be interested again.
And while Rafa has said many times that Newcastle are no longer a stepping stone club – it doesn’t look that way.
Rafa is not in a good position with Perez at the moment becasue he cannot even tell his Spanish compatriot whether he will be staying on board.
There could well be some collateral damage of these lengthy and drawn out negotiations for his contract – players like Perez and Rondon could be gone before Rafa signs a new deal.
If they are not gone by actually doing the deal – their heads may be away from Newcastle and looking at other clubs.
Rondon could even end up at Everton as the Newcastle hierarchy are once again negotiating to the finest of fine details for Rafa’s contract.
The current level of uncertainty is not healthy, but with the way Rafa has improved Perez over the last three years, it would be really disappointing to see him leave.
It’s the same with Isaac Hayden, but his reasons for leaving are family motivated rather than football motivated.
