There’s a report in le10Sport today that Newcastle want to sign former PSG man Antero Henrique as our new Sporting Director.
The Premier League are expected to announce this week that they have approved the takeover of Newcastle for £300M by a consortium led by Ripon-born financier Amanda Staveley.
But that’s also been the news for the last three Mondays.
Henrique is a talented man, and he would be an excellent signing for Newcastle.
Amanda Staveley is now attempting to complete the signing of the key people who will lead the club forward to bigger and better things after Mike Ashley finally leaves the club.
New life can now be breathed into our famous club.
Former PSG Sporting Director Antero Henrique
Manchester United have also been trying to sign the Portuguese man, but Newcastle are reported to be in the driver’s seat for Henrique.
Here is a portion of the le10Sport’s report translated from the French:
“Since leaving PSG, Antero Henrique has continued to play a role in the transfer market.
Last winter, the Portuguese technician notably completed the signing of Bruno Fernandes at Manchester United, one of the biggest hits of January.
Newcastle are thinking of Antero Henrique for the position of sports director of the future project.
Besides Newcastle, Manchester United is also interested in Antero Henrique, who already collaborates with the English club.
But the hottest track remains that of Newcastle. Also mentioned, Luis Campos was indeed approached by the Magpies.
But the Portuguese still officiates on the LOSC side, despite rumors of departure.”
Henqieue is the man who brokered the deal to take Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United last year.
