Newcastle Reported To Be Back In For Uruguayan International



There are reports resurfacing in Italy that Newcastle are again interested in long-term target Diego Laxalt.

Laxalt is a left-sided midfielder/wing-back who made a big move back to Milan last summer joining AC Milan from Genoa for €17M.

Laxalt had joined Genoa from Inter in 2016 for €5.8M. His move to Milan had not gone as expected for the Uruguayan who was quickly linked with a move away in January 2019.

Newcastle were heavily linked with Laxalt as a solution to their left back issues in January even though he had only been at AC Milan since August.

Later that January, Calcio Mercato reported that Laxalt was not too impressed with Newcastle but it may have been because at that time we were third bottom.

Diego Laxalt– when playing for Genoa

Laxalt, who has 17 caps for Uruguay, managed only 6 starts in Serie A for Milan while the prior season at Genoa he started 32 games.

Atalanta and Torino are said to also be tracking Laxalt so if Newcastle still does not interest him, his only options may be another move within Serie A.

There were also murmurs in April that Newcastle would go for Laxalt this summer. So this recent report seems like a continuation of prior links.

The player would cost about €12M which is reasonable. However, we would not consider him to be a top target if Newcastle get adequate funding for transfers this summer.

    I used to go out with an Optician

    I finished with her because when we were between the sheets she was always saying

    ” Is it better like this, or is it better like that”

    There is just far too much now !!

    Come on lads/lasses it’s getting closer, the LinkedIn ‘thumbs up’, the info from Micky, the silence from ‘everyone’ , Companies House stuff, NUFC staff email, Ash and his ‘Housekeeping ‘…..

    If it takes until the end of June I can ‘Gloria Gaynor’ ( i will survive)

    Sorry

    To misquote Shawshank. Newcastle crawled to freedom through twelve years of shti-smelling foulness I can’t even imagine – or maybe I just don’t want to.

    What I stated is factual.

    Nothing wrong with asking him to back up his claims. I want to belive too.

    MagP, you may have slagged me off when I had the temerity to questions rafas occasional over cautious approach, which I though was ridiculous, but I don’t see the problem with the question. Micky, maybe there was a spat between you two earlier or something? Either way, keep it coming Mickey, Bambams etc. Htl.

    There are so many sad acts who literally must have little to no life who go to extreme lengths making fake accounts that i dont know whether that is legit, so i wont get my hopes up with that, if it happens it happens, if it doesnt…then it. Is going to be an even more depressing season than usual by some distance.

    Was Mike Ashley’s £500m retail loss the final nail in coffin for Hull’s House of Fraser?

    Looks like our mate Mikey is losing money at a canny rate
