One Of Newcastle’s Left-Back Targets Added To Club’s Squad For Preseason Cup

Tottenham Hotspur have added Danny Rose to their squad for the Audi Cup in Munich which will take place today and tomorrow.

He had been left out of their squad recently as he had been linked with moves to PSG and Juventus.

Newcastle had also been linked with the 29-year-old and he was said to be high on Steve Bruce’s list of transfer targets.

Reports of Danny Rose being a target of Newcastle started a few weeks ago but always seemed dubious to us. He would cost about £20m and has just turned 29 this month.

Recently it was claimed that the player’s wages, which were said to be at £60k/week, were the stumbling block in a deal for Rose.

However, we didn’t think those were outrageous wages for a player of Rose’s stature. There most likely was nothing in the supposed link with Newcastle.

As Salomon Rondon stated yesterday in an interview about his time at Newcastle, the club just don’t buy older players.

This is what our player of the season said about Newcastle’s transfer policy.

“Maybe a few years ago, Newcastle would have given me a contract.

“But it looks like the owner’s rule is that, ‘Because he’s 29, when I sell I don’t get more money from what I’ve invested in him’.

“I get that because, for the owner, it is a business.

“But I showed to all of them that even though I am 29, I am still scoring goals, I still assist my team-mates, I am still working really hard, I still feel like a young guy.

“I have had 12 years in Europe and no bad injuries, I try to eat properly and I am professional.

“When you hear the comments about my age, those people don’t know about football.”

We think the club would be in a lot better position this season if we did have Rondon up front. But it’s up to the club to replace him adequately which they have failed to do so thus far.

    We’d ask that you be civil towards other readers and refrain from obscene language and any comments on religion, ethnic groups or politics.

    Just what it says especially for those people who thinks taking the ‘U’ out of offensive words makes them less understandable i.e. the F word and the C word

    You can see why Rondon and Benitez are such big pals. Same sort of ego-driven greed and largely unwarranted self-importance.

    I’m not trying to rub folks noses in it
    I just call it as I see it
    I think a lot of the ire is directed my way
    ibecause in their heart of hearts bloggers
    see the truth of what I say.
    The more intelligent ones try to engage

    then it ranges through stages of ignorance
    until you get to the irrelevant anachronism
    that is oldarse , who believes he can discredit my comments
    by inferring I’m gay or others who say I’m a cross – dresser.

    so sad really

    Rose was never a target for reasons already mentioned , too old, too expensive.

    This blog has become a clique of 60+ year old bitter grumpy men – forever moaning and slagging each other off or on the wind up constantly , quite sad really

    It’s looking very much like fans being restricted
    to the radio for tonight’s friendly at Easter Road
    cannot find the hint of a stream anywhere.
    There are lots of Euro games tonight is probably why.

    Im calling it the Saint Max deal is dead, was all smoke and mirrors so they can get closer to the finish line(Transfer window shutting) just like the other biggish transfer mentioned…just remarkable that we have a so called budget of 40-50 million left yet we cant get a guy over the line from a club who are willing sellers for 18-20 million….

    More lies and deception as always
