PSG Enter Race For Newcastle Target


Foot Mercato are reporting that PSG have joined the race to sign Newcastle’s supposed left-back target Philipp Max.

Max is also reportedly being sought by both Liverpool and Barcelona as cover for their left-back position. Augsburg seem willing to sell Max for £18m.

However, the club may only wish to sell the 25-year-old to a Champions League club.

Stefan Reuter, Augsburg’s sporting director, recently said the following about selling the club’s top players:

“We told players and agents that if players could take the next step and move to a club that plays regularly internationally, we are looking for a solution that will please everyone”

This would seem to rule out Newcastle. Though with clubs like Liverpool, Barcelona, and now PSG looking at Philipp Max, it is unlikely Newcastle would be able to compete for his signature in any case.

Philipp Max– likely to join Champions League club

Newcastle are in desperate need of an adding a left-back this summer and have identified long-term target Stanley N’Soki as the prime candidate.

The news yesterday from France was that Newcastle had offered N’Soki wages that the player found insulting.

It’s hard to know if the player was asking for too much or if Newcastle went in with really low offers. N’Soki is only 20-years-old. However, he does play at PSG so it’s difficult to gauge this situation.

Although Chronicle writer Andrew Musgrove tweeted that he thought the club and player were close on personal terms.

This is another transfer saga that Newcastle fans so often have to endure as we seem to have trouble getting players over the line. It just seems amazing that the Joelinton deal seemed to run so smoothly while these others are so frustratingly tedious.

    It’s Easter road for our last away friendly of the ore-season campaign….

    Cash turn stiles will be available in the away end at £15 a head.

    We are aiming to stream the game from the stands signal permitting and relying on the stewards not being over exuberant for a friendly, none-televised match.

    I think hibbit may believe Ashley is raising cash to buy them out

    This theory has some merit

    I wouldn’t say the Joelinton move ran smoothly. According to Ashley we spent most of January trying to get him in but failed to get him over the line in Jan. They then offered him to us for our asking price after his form plummeted, which I hope was down to unhappiness to being denied a move. It just wasn’t in the papers which is why we didn’t have our usual drawn out saga.

    Why are we after so many left backs? We have two decent ones already. Max is by far the best of the ones we are linked with.

    Are we really going into the season with just two attacking players who potentially could be decent?

    Mineshaft,
    Ashley said he offered to put 20m of his own money for Joelinton, although that may have been for Rafa only. And we haven’t heard what Rafa says yet on the matter.

    They’re probably upgrades Jib, but my point is we can’t afford the luxury of 3 left backs when we have one unproven striker, one decent number ten and zero wingers. Although we may not play with wingers. And both our left backs are better than yedlin and manquillo.

    Grant Thornton is under scrutiny from the audit regulator for its work for Sports Direct. The FRC is investigating why Grant Thornton did not disclose payments made by Sports Direct to a company run by Mr Ashley’s brother as a related party transaction in the accounts

    And the bit that matters

    If Sports Direct cannot find an auditor, City rules stipulates that this would give the Department for Business the right to make an appointment for them.

    IrishRob, as it’s a pre-season friendly, I’m not the bit concerned about the result. As long as the players look like they’re starting to gell, then that’s all that counts. I remember seeing some fantastic performances pre-season that were no way replicated in the league. E.g. Cordone, Jon-Dahl-Tommason, and rather frighteningly Xisco playing wide left.

    Sports Direct has hit out at claims that it is looking to replace its auditor Grant Thornton after delaying the release of its preliminary results, stating that it plans to reappoint the mid-tier firm for another year subject to a vote at this year’s AGM

    They literally have no plan and nobody else to turn to,shove out this PR

    HAHAHAHAHA

    And who might the Department for Business appoint to audit him ?

    The HMRC

    8. You do not have representation

    Accountants have many uses, but one surprising thing an accountant can do for you is reduce your chances of being investigated, simply by representing your business.

    Of course, having an accountant is no guarantee of honest business, but using an accredited service helps boost your trustworthiness in the eyes of HMRC.

    A business owner managing their own accounts, especially when they run a large business, could potentially indicate one of two things:

    They don’t want third parties seeing their finances
    Mistakes are being made due to lack of knowledge and experience

    To make sure neither of these are happening, HMRC may launch an investigation to discover how effective your self-management of the accounts actually is.

    There is no secret to this solution. If you run a large and highly profitable business — the kind of business that really should have an accountant managing their finances — get an accountant to handle your finances.
