Newcastle Will Flex Their Financial Muscle To Sign This Midfielder In Summer

25-year-old Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot is finding life tough and could well leave the Italian giants this summer.

Newcastle have been linked with the player, and  Gazzetta dello Sport are reporting that his agent has spoken to both Manchester United and Everton about a possible move.

Newcastle have been tracking the 25-year-old French midfielder, and the Italian report is that the Magpies are willing to offer the former PSG midfielder the best deal: much better than his offers from the other two Premier League clubs.

This is all assuming the Amanda Staveley-led takeover will be given the green light by the Premier League, and the new owners will keen to bring in about five top-class players this summer.

That will help to transform the team, under a new manager – expected to be former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.

One advantage Everton do have is their manager Carlo Ancelotti has already worked with the player at PSG and may have the upper hand in negotiations.

Adrien Rabiot – Newcastle keen on Juventus midfielder

The new Newcastle owners will be looking to flex their financial muscle this summer in an attempt to show players they are for real and have high ambitions: ambitions that finally match those of our long-suffering Newcastle fans.

For once, money will not be the problem as it’s been with Mike Ashley, who’s been at the helm for the last 13 barren years at the Tyneside club.

There could be a long way to go before we see the summer transfer window if indeed the Premier League’s Project Restart is successful.

We have at least 10 games to play under the current manager Steve Bruce, and there’s still a lot to play for, including the FA Cup.

But then there will be a new-look Newcastle club, and the day-to-day management is expected to be taken up by new CEO Amanda Staveley.

And we should see some top-class players joining the club before next season starts.

    Who is fully expecting no takeover this week? And to be told its next week half way through the week lol.. This takeover has turned from excitement to tedious and predictable for me.. Just feel exhausted by it… Wake me when it’s done.

    Oh not another fckin doubt about whether takeover is done, or will be done!
    The EPL don’t want to refuse us and be hit with a huge lawsuit at the present time surely!
    If they do it will be the biggest mistake they’ve ever made!

    Confidential discussions when we get to those issues.
    Yes confidential could just mean within the PL mgt team, but when we get to those issues. Seems to refer to any issues that may arise from an active process (Toon), or is it just a poor use of words and that it’s a general reference to issues in the generic process.
    Get it done!

    Morning all, still a bit windy today so no bike ride for me again.

    So, has the takeover been given the green light or not,? A couple of articles suggests it has,nt, i even get the feeling that the tests are STILL ongoing. So which is it?
    I was under the impression it was just a case of transferring funds but it does,nt appear as simple as that, nothing is simple with Nufc.
    I was hoping for an announcement no later than 1st June. Once Hairy Hands mate takes the chair on that date it could turn very interesting indeed.

    About Rabiot, not that i believe we are at all interested, i think its just another load of BS, but i think he is a bit of a cry baby, bit of a troublemaker, and that is the last thing we need in our squad. Stay well away.

    Hibbit that could be another reason for the delay,
    Consortium having to plan how to announce it and not have mass gatherings

    it would be better if they announced it by video cast the way I see it, first it would stop the fans going to the ground well hopefully that is if they already know there is no one at the ground and its all done via video link

    If the PL refuse PIF entry to the prem league via nufc, what are the grounds for legal action by Amanda and Co?

    Discrimination, defamation of character, the fact that Sheffield is Saudi owned and I’m sure they will think of more

    It depends entirely on the reason the PIF/consortium are denied entry for, the prem would have to prove their case , they wiil also have to give the consortium the time and opportunity to defend/rebuke any allegations, or answer any questions regarding the “red flags”

    Munster Mag i think the deals done,

    if the deal is not done legal action would be based on the reasons given for the refusal,
    under the current rules there are no grounds for refusal and the PL know this that’s why they passed it,
