Will Hoffenheim Leak Of Joelinton Talks Scupper Deal?


Inside Futbol are reporting that Newcastle United are upset with Hoffenheim confirming that Joelinton was in talks with a Premier League club.

This is what the Hoffenheim Twitter account tweeted earlier today when news broke that Joelinton was not in the matchday squad for the friendly against Regensburg

This tweet translates to:

He is in concrete negotiations with a Premier League club. It may be that he leaves us.

This is what Inside Futbol is reporting about Newcastle’s reaction to this confirmation by Hoffenheim.

However, it has been claimed that the Magpies are disappointed that their interest in Joelinton has been put into the public domain by Hoffenheim.

News of Joelinton’s availability could yet bring other clubs into the mix for the 22-year-old Brazilian.

Newcastle have a right to be a bit upset that this news has been verified by Hoffenheim even if they weren’t mentioned directly. The last thing we need right now is a bidding war for a player.

Although, it is hardly breaking news that Newcastle are interested in Joelinton. He has been steadily linked to Newcastle since the winter.

The price tag of around £36m also seems to be consistent with earlier reports though some had it at a bit higher. This would be a massive price to pay for the young striker, but this is the going rate for quality players these days.

There is also a lot of innuendo that Rafa Benitez did not really rate the player but that others at the club really did.

For all things Rafa, the best source is the Times’ George Caulkin who has been correct on almost all of his reporting about our former manager.

This is what George has tweeted about Joelinton.

It seems that Rafa did rate the young striker but was possibly perplexed as to how so much money was available all of a sudden. Rafa probably saw better use of the funds in other areas of the squad, like maybe fullback.

We still have to wonder if Ashley will sanction this amount for Joelinton. It seems like an out of character deal for him. Though if you consider the incoming fees for Ayoze Perez and Joselu, our net spend would still be just over £3m for the summer.

    Irishrob,

    It could be any team…..it could also be us.
    It might never happen or he might sign by the end of the week.

    Does that change anything wrt the ongoing/planned protests?

    In the normal essence yes munster mag your right.

    But this is Ashlie, he’s well and truly crossed the line, so I don’t see why I should hold back if that’s the way he’s made me feel.

    He enjoys taking the piss out of the fans.

    The Joelinton DEAL could well of been linked deliberately to start a bidding war, not that we will be involved in it. We will more likely be interested in Charlie Austin for 8M, If that deal for Austin goes through , then it would make a total mockery of Rondon supposedly being too old. Total bullshit story.

    The joelinton deal is much more likely than Charlie Austin, simply because of age

    Lesh that Link did make me think ..not sure what you had in mind for me Brother but it made me think of all the Strats , Tele’s and Les pauls that I have ..and the first Martin D45 I got and went to bed with her laying beside me the first night I got her home off the plane .

    Not joking , the headstock was on the pillow ..it sounded like a trio of Angels when I played a C.

    Really did take it to bed ..I told the Texas flatpicker guys and they told me not to tell anyone else , ever.

    But there you go..Iv told a bunch .

    This should also be a matter for local government, local businesses, and non profit groups in Newcastle and Northumberland, not just the small number of passionate activists we have among the fan base. He’s not just a cancer on the club, he’s a cancer on the region. We are the football equivalent of a Big Mac, Large Fries and a Coke.

    Could that reported stitching around the mouth be possibly where Jibs missus tried to stitch his mouth up when he was comatose on the Monday after a weekend on the White lightning , Blue Nun, Buckfast , and Thunderbird ?

    Munster,

    If there is money siphoning going on then the whole purpose would be to hide it…..and nobody would know it was going on apart from the people who were involved.
    Is that possible – yes
    Is that likely – no

    Ashley has a multitude of ways to take money legally out of the club and he has never ever chosen to do it.

    Is he a bad owner – yes (because his business philosophy is not compatible with football club ownership)
    Is he a crook who is “bleeding the club dry” – there is absolutely no evidence of this.

    This transfer craic, Joelinton, more to do with trying to sell season tickets than signing him.

    IrishRob, loved Shaka as a player, he’s cool as owt still. Spot on message from him in that vid, thanks for sharing.

    Also a good watch here, Sky Transfer Talk, interviews with Shola (boo), Steve Howey who they tried to get to talk about Bruce but he repeatedly and brilliantly kept turning the conversation back to Ashley and his failings and Chopra who said everything we all think about why Bruce cannot hold a candle to Rafa.
