PSG Left-Back Favored By Rafa Now Available For Cut-Rate Fee


Longtime left-back target Stanley N’Soki is reportedly available for just €7m. The player is considered to be surplus to requirements at PSG with the French Champions looking to cash in on the youngster this summer.

This is the tweet with a link by Get French Football News.


Stanley N’Soki was close to joining Newcastle on loan last summer before N’Soki decided to stay in Paris and fight for his first team place.

He was able to earn a contract extension in September to 2021 but saw limited first-team opportunities behind left-backs Juan Bernat and Layvin Kurzawa.

N’Soki could be a very economical buy for Newcastle whose scouts will know all about him. He would also provide cover in central defense which would allow Newcastle to cash in on Ciaran Clark or Federico Fernandez if necessary.

It does appear as though N’Soki has no future at the Parisian giants and now would be a good time for Newcastle to take action if they are still interested.

PSG have also signed Dutch U19 international left-back Mitchel Bakker from Ajax who they will presumably hope to groom for the future.

St Etienne are said to be interested in N’Soki however they prefer signing Mexican club Tigres’ left-back Timothee Kolodziejczak permanently after having the player on loan last season

    Yeah, I think money was there for Rafa this season, whereas prior to last mid season window it wasn’t. As I see it there were personal and professional differences between Rafa and Ashley, there was no project on offer, and there was real uncertainty over the sale in Rafa’s mind, so he moved on.

    Is Monday National Joe Linton day ?
    If so do we get a day off to salute our Illustrious Leader and undertake meaningless tasks like doing the dishes ?

    Munster you’re crap at comedy even with your digital sidekick jibbo but you’re definitely shaping up to be a clown. Munstro shall we call you, while we are about with the absolutely childish name calling? Munstro the Clown. Has a ring.

    If youre going to call someone a name, don’t use one that indicates someone smarter than you is a toff. That would mean 99% of the earth’s population will be called Tarquin. Isn’t that the name you lifted from Bobbybees urban legend story? Man, if you’re going to try comedy try being original.

    Stick to your wilting admiration for Ashley and the admirable journeyman manager. And don’t get do obsessive Munstro. It’s only a club going down the toilet a thousand miles away from you. The one on the telly you know. Balloon.

    Nicky again – money was there for Rafa? Jail’s right, history being redrawn at hyperspeed. Pretty soon it will be Benitez who ruined this club and Mikey saved us again eh? Save us all from this slow death someone.

    You can see from the PR it’s business as usual
    Rafa was an unwanted blip
    A bump in the road
    Happily we’re back to reality now with Jabbs getting down to some solid asset stripping

    With just say staying in the league seen as a result
    It means he took every penny he could and can take it again next season

    I n every business Jabbs owns it’s the same story
    We arnt seeing the bigger picture here, we might want to turn our attention to EVERYTHING he owns

    It’s the same story, he is mugging off everyone at every company he owns
    The staff, customers and shareholders

    Everyone

    Tsunki, why, and please be specific, do you think there wouldn’t have been any money for Rafa this term, and won’t be now for an incoming manager, when we all know it’s there now.

    The product he offers is near worthless

    He is mugging off the country at this point

    Actually don’t, it’d be like giving the vice president of the Hebburn and Jarrow Noel Coward Appreciation Society’s an open invitation to get his panties all het up in a bunch over my innocuous musings once again, and again, again. Munsters right, you’re a windbag.

    Nicky,

    A very good insight into the club’s stupid transfer policy with mark Douglas, on the latest black and white podcast, so i would urge everyone to give it a listen.

    In summary, as we all know the club want players to provide future sell on value, which rafa doesnt like as he believes he should have the final say on transfers. His idea is that if he spends aload of money and it doesnt work out and the club are relegated then blame him and that the club should sack him and he would totally accept that. Rafa says he cant be judged on this idea that he is only allowed to sign a certain type of player. Rafa feels the team need experience.

    Every deal has to be financially conducive from three perspectives :- wages, transfer fee and agents/signing on fees. Rafa’s found ever since hes been there they agree to two and then say no to the other and he feels the club make excuses not to do the deals he wants. Club says they dont have the resources other clubs do so every deal has to be financially just right.
    The club have put names to rafa, but hes not interested, he wants his own players. Wont be part of a transfer comitee. When club say we can get this player in for you he says no as he wants his own names.

    Rafa wants to know his budget so he can speak to player’s and agent’s and get deals lined up. Club say you have no budget you come to us with a list of the players you want and a decision will be made on a case by case basis. So just because they have the money to apparently bid for plea, they dont have it for rondon. Club say they have given rafa leeway in signings of ki, rondon and Fernandez. A whole 6 million leeway. All deals have to be ratified by lard arse.

    Everything at the club is so dysfunctional and that the club want a manger like a padull or mcnugget who will just be grateful for what they can get and not someone who will strive to improve the club and continually challenge them on the way the club is run.

    Yeah, no love lost between the two, but Rafa was perfect for Ashley, if he’d accepted less, but Ashley still had to back him in the market with the clubs money or there was no chance at all of him staying, Same with Bruce, you can’t attract a new manager to follow Rafa without promising funds to reshape the group. The shit might start with Bruce next term, but this term he surely will be backed.

    Cathedral on the Hill. Yeah, all of that’s true and well known, I’ve been banging on about that for a decade. But it’s not an argument against the club having money to spend and a willingness and need to spend it this term. It’s an argument about control.

    The way it worked for Rafa, from what he said was, he’d put forward players to Charnley, and the club would see what it could do. Rafa had the final say, but rarely got his first choice, and wasn’t always happy it, or how long it took.

    You’d hope Bruce would get at least the same. It appears he believes he has final say.

    But control is something the club just wont give full stop. It wasn’t the money that rafa had a problem with it was the way in which it was spent. Whatever your remit or policy is you cannot improve a club on a zero net spend. Despite 2 relegations and at least 4 other relegation battles they still remain of the belief that their failed policy works. The club is allergic to anything other than the bare minimum. Ask yourself what can a manger actually improve at the club on and off the pitch?

    Totally agree Cathedral. I wonder why are you asking me that now. I’ve never disputed it, far from it, it’s at the very heart of why we’ll never succeed under Ashley. Top 8, no chance, ever, until we start maximizing revenue, buying the right players at the right time and investing in infrastructure. I’m really just talking about transfer money this term here.

    I don’t think Rafa ever was forced to take a player he didn’t want. Too strong a manager for that. You’re hoping Bruce has atleast that much of a final say. I think that is how you have to interpret “final say” here. The authority to say no, don’t want him. Beyond that, yeah, Ashley won’t budge.
