Young Venezuelan Striker To Remain In Argentina As Rondon Is Linked With Rafa In China



We have been linked with Jan Hurtado throughout this summer. The young Venezuelan was said to the perfect protege for Salomon Rondon to work with under Rafa Benitez. What a difference a month makes as those dreams are dead and buried.

There is news in the Daily Mail that Rafa Benitez is trying to lure Rondon with him to Chinese club Dalian Yifang. There are no quotes or hints of approaches being made in the article. It just states that Rafa is trying to get Rondon to Dalian Yifang. We’re not sure about this one but we’re sure Rondon would get a healthy pay rise if he were to make the move.

Jan Hurtado has had quite the summer of intrigue. There were first the reports that Rafa Benitez wanted him signed up in May. Then came the links to Serie A with Gimnasia’s President having travelled to Italy to try and sell the player.

There was a bid by Sampdoria that did not meet the €9m asking price of Gimnasia and was turned down. Sampdoria never followed up with a second bid as Gimnasia held firm on their valuation of the young striker.

The next act in the Jan Hurtado saga dealt with him not reporting to training and pushing for a move to Boca Juniors. This would mean that he would stay in Argentina but also brought out the new information that Gimnasia only held 50% of the player’s rights with a company holding the other half.

Today there is a report in Football Italia that claims Boca Juniors have had a bid of €5.5m accepted by Gimnasia and that he is on his way for a medical.

This is another striker that Newcastle will have missed out on. Though admittedly this one would have been one for the future as he is only 19 years of age.

    Haha, so the previous comments, from wherever, about players all being relaxed and comfortable with things may not be all that accurate.

    Many of us have been to countless games and want to boycott so that is a totally vacuous remark.

    You are obviously pleased with the current state of affairs in that case and don’t plan to do anything to alter that. .

    @ LG #34 .. what you say is perfectly sensible and I’m probably expecting more than football hacks are capable of delivering. I suppose I just get frustrated with the cynical way they behave. Especially since some of them are supposed to be fans themselves and must know theyre annoying people. As you say, thats no doubt the point ..??

    Toon Cat,
    Nothing wrong with believing people will uphold high standards and a morale compass. Sadly, the majority of the time that will leave you let down…

    I’m not even sure most of the hacks are journalists, more social media aggregators.

    Yorky
    While like I said it’s your choice., but that’s why we’re in the situation we’re in MA relies on fans like you, all be it the majority. (All though I could see the attraction while Rafa was here).
    I know most fans think it makes no difference if there was a empty stadium but believe it would, the rest of the world would look at MA as a failure and he would not like that. He would either change his ways or move on.
    Anyway good luck you’ll have plenty of budget football to watch with survival being a success.
    But at least you’ll have a day out.

    Looks like VAR is going to be more trouble than it’s worth. England women’s team have goal disallowed when controlled on chest and defender pushing from behind so ball has nowhere else to go. Looked ok to me.

    Lilo

    A repost from,a couple of threads back but it looks as though you and Hibbit have justified the argument that Charnley is as much MD of the club as I am.

    Anyway…..

    Lilo

    Yes, anyone in Charnley’s position would do what he thinks is required to keep his job post Ashley. But whether a new employee would retain him as MD’s another matter – he’s probably not up to the MD role as we understand it. He’s seems to have been nothing more than Ashley’s gopher, doing as he’s told.

    However, if I were buying the club, I’d retain him in some admin/ company secretary type of role as he has the inside knowledge of the club and dealing with transfers. But as MD with the expectation that he define and manage policy and strategy etc, I’d say no.

    Lesh,
    I doubt very much he would be retained long term, unless during the interim period while things settle, he impresses and shows how competent he is…..

    So yeah, I doubt he will be there long term. Plus Midhat messaged me on whatsapp saying he hates custard creams, and as they are Charnley’s favourite, he will be let go once the current stock of them is finished.
