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.

    What’s the status of signage inside SJP ?
    No one checked or reported on that ?
    Daresay new signs will appear 24hours before the Arsenal game. If they’re going to be Spits Diuretic then picket the ground so they don’t go up.

    My mate is a fireman and was doing some (terrifying looking) abseil type training there the back end of last week. He took a load of photos, it looks to me like the ones taken down haven’t been replaced but the big ones next to the screen and either side of the St James Park sign are still up as well as some other small ones

    They wanted to keep Colback
    Alfa Semedo is his replacement
    BTW
    It’s Notts County / Nottingham Forest
    Notts is a county abbreviation not a city one

    Hahahahaha Jib that’s weird!! First the frog accuses us of being the same person, then we have pretty much the same photos on our phones! Has the takeover saga really made me insane and we are actually the same person like in Fight Club??

    How can I be an ignorant outsider when I’ve lived here all my life.
    For once in ya life just listen to a bit of friendly advice rather than making yourself look a tw@t again.
    Yet another Google fact you’ve got wrong.
    Stick to bullfighting in ya beloved Spain.Or do you put there lingo to the sword as well….Berk

    I was chatting to a Gooner today and he reckons they are trying to organise a boycott of their away support at the toon game!
    They are fed up with the lack of spending on players and say the owners are subsidising their American sports ventures!

    You’re right
    Chris Wilder shortest odds
    Why he would leave the Blades after bringing them up
    is hard to fathom

    Boss I’ve spoken to the groundsman, he was a bit confused but said as it’s from you he’ll get onto it.

    MA

    What, get onto what, you blathering idiot.

    4iiiis

    The goal posts you said you wanted to move them.

    MA

    Move the bloody goalposts when did I say that?

    4iiiis

    The other day boss just after you’d spoke to those Arabs on the blower, you said that you’d move the goalposts.

    MA

    Bloody ell, why do I employ you, no, what I said is that I’d have to move the goalposts, move the goalposts, geddit?

    4iiiis

    Well you don’t pay me a lot for what I do and you once muttered something about having a pasty in the office, although I’m sure what you were talking about cos you always have pasties in the office. So you do want the goalposts moved?

    MA

    Patsy not pasty, you idiot. No I don’t want the groundsman to move the goalposts, what I want and listen carefully.
    Is to move the goalposts for the Arabs. Now do you geddit?

    4iiiis

    Aah I see what you mean boss, the sale is finally going through and the Arab buyers don’t like where the goalposts are.

    MA

    Oh give me strength, OK what I want you to do is to get a shovel from the groundsman and go and move them yourself, have you got that?

    4iiiis

    OK, so I’m part of the ground staff as well now, makes a change from getting the tea and biscuits I suppose.

    MA

    Good minion, off you go I’ll sort it out later with KBA

    On the news the other day was an item about the police having broken the biggest slave set up in the UK.

    But correct me if I’m wrong, isn’t that still operating as a sports related chain?

    Jib back to his agitating again. I’d almost thought he had lost his nefarious edge.

    This is a great article by Jonathan cook (pinned to his Twitter page) that Jib will never end up reading. 😉
