Rafa Wants To Sign 21-Year-Old Brazilian For Between £17.5M – £21M



There were reports this past January that Newcastle were in negotiations for Juventus left-back Rogerio Oliveira da Silva, known simply as Rogerio.

There is a report in the newspaper Tuttosport that Newcastle are after the Brazilian again this summer.

Rafa after Juventus left-back Rogerio

The outlet Sportwitness has a screenshot of the actual newspaper report today which we have reproduced below.

The 21-year-old joined Sassuolo for €1.5M from Brazilian club Sport Club Internacional in the 2016 winter window.

Juventus then purchased the player that summer for €2M and loaned him back to Sassuolo for the past two seasons.

Rogerio broke into the first team at Sassuolo in February 2018 and has been a regular starter ever since. He has made 49 appearances for Sassuolo with 42 of those in the starting eleven.

While generally a left-back, he has played as a left-sided midfielder this season as well.

Now that Rogerio’s loan spell is over, he is back at Juventus but well down in the pecking order.

With Alex Sandro and Leonardo Spinazzola in their prime and ahead of him at the left back position, Juventus may be willing to cash in on the youngster.

The report claims the fee would be in the €20- €25M range.

This is an exciting young player who would fit well in Newcastle’s system at left wing-back if these reports are accurate.

    Folks I want to ask you something, I understand where you are coming from with concerns in the mould of “I don’t want us to buy a trophy”…

    But wouldn’t that mean we outspend the direct competition we face to win it through gulf of quality? How is that even possible, to outspend the top 6? The only way would be to buy 100m+ players en masse every window, which is theoretically impossible given the FFP.

    Here is a question: would spending to match the current top clubs like the Manchesters, Chelsea, Liverpool qualify as “buying a trophy” or just becoming competitive in a top 6 environment? Because matching their spending requires hundreds of millions in player investment, too.

    Reasonable investment would put us in the same bracket as Everton and Wolves this season.

    So will Rafa change us to a possession-based side
    rather than a counter-attacking side?

    If Rafa was allowed to build a team over 3-5 years you’d have to give him another 3 to see what the team could accomplish.

    I’d be happy to see Rafa oversee a project like that as he’d include youth set up aswell.

    I wonder how Perez (we definitely need to keep him) is now thinking. He is clearly far more ambitious for himself than scrapping in a relegation-dodging outfit. That was NUFC 2018-19, but will most definitely not be NUFC 2019-20. Stick around, Son; that big pay rise, and wider recognition, now happens at St James’s, which wasn’t at all the case up until this week’s news.

    Cheers Micky, we were the only team to beat Man City in 2019. Guardiola praised us hugely. Not just the players but the fans, stadium and atmosphere.
    Won’t of went unnoticed by Mansour. Maybe tipped the scales for khaled.

    Chelsea 1-0 Arsenal

    Olivier Giroud is the first player to score 11 goals in major European competition for an English club since Alan Shearer scored 11 in 2004-05 for Newcastle United. (BBC)

    I think Guardiola has a soft spot for us, he said when Sir Bobby got the job here he asked Bobby if he could come play us but Bobby said no as he had Speed Lee Dyer etc already.

    I think the legal transfer of the club from Ashley to the owners has started.
    I’ve been pondering for a couple of days how the transfer would take place.

    It seems logical that the ‘club’ would be transferred to a new holding company in Dubai.
    But what I wasn’t sure about is if Newcastle United limited (and it’s subsiduaries) would be transferred or would it be st James holdings would be transferred.

    Then I rembered that Ashley had pilfered two properties from the club and put them into two of his own companies – project J newco 39 & 40. Which are susiduaries of st James holdings but not Newcastle United limited.

    I realised these two companies would hold the key – and indeed both companies have begun Strike-off proceeding as of 23rd May – with a strike off date of June 4th.
    That will tie up all the loose ends.

    Are they being struck off his other company and maybe being sold with Newcastle or being taken away from Newcastle altogether and he is keeping them? Is it anything to do with land in Strawberry Place? Need that back for ground expansion and another try to increase the East Stand

    Strike off proceedings?

    Does that mean they’re being taken out of St James Holdings?

    What about the properties, I assume they’re off with 39 & 40

    Yes I also wondered if our win against Manchester City had a bearing on the take over if so we owe an enormous debt of gratitude to all the Newcastle team on duty that day!

    I recall feeling so chuffed when we beat them but more because it was three unexpected points than anything else!

    Happy days are just around the corner eh?

    Micky – you got me blushing now 🙂

    Simon – I don’t know what the properties are, ones a freehold and the other is leasehold (I’m pretty sure it’s not related to strawberry place – that’s already gone)

    Novo – strikeoff is the process to dissolve a company (I believe the term is to strike it off the companies register)

    I have no idea what that means to the assets – whether they’ll go back to the club or be transferred to MASH

    Lindisfarne @106, a bit of both really, I did know they were carrying out due diligence in Feb, the April date for the proof of funds (that the journos still said NUFC hadn’t received earlier today), was from the release today, and the rest was best guesstimate.

    M’bappe of course, duh.

    😉

    No idea, I’ve been thinking all day about realistic targets, came up with none as I dont know what our realistic will be.

    I’m calling Rondon as it’ll be a gesture to the fans and manager.
