Report – Newcastle To Move For Former Rafa Target

In January of 2019, there were reports that Newcastle were negotiating for Brazilian left-back Rogerio Oliveira da Silva.

Rogerio, at the time, was on the books at Juventus but in the midst of a two-year loan spell at fellow Serie A club Sassuolo. He eventually moved to Sassuolo permanently for around £5m last summer.

The 22-year-old suffered a meniscus injury in the first game of last season that sidelined him until December. He slowly forced his way back into the Sassuolo side making a total of 16 appearances with 1 goal and 1 assist.

Sport Witness have a report citing Italian outlet Calcio Mercato that Newcastle are moving for the left-back this summer.

No proposed fee is mentioned in the report but he could be seen as a legitimate option if Newcastle are unable to bring back either Danny Rose or Jetro Willems, who both spent time on loan last season.

If Steve Bruce is committed to playing a back four next season, we’ll need to bring in at least one left-back to the club as currently, only Paul Dummett is on the books with experience at the position.

Rogerio is a former Brazil U23 international who has made 65 total appearances for Sassuolo. He joined the Juventus U19s in 2016 but never made a first-team appearance for the Italian giants.

We wouldn’t expect Rogerio to cost very much which could be why Newcastle have renewed their interest in him. With news yesterday of the takeover being all but dead, Newcastle are going to have to be in the hunt for bargains this summer.

    my mate sent a mail to master

    Mr Masters,
    I am a Newcastle United fan from India, I have been following and supporting Newcastle United for the last 15 years and have been through all the lows of the club including relegation twice under the current ownership. In India there are not many NUFC supporters but the trifle out there communicate each other with a whatsapp group and a Twitter account. There are mnay supporters of the big four out here but we always hoped that someday we would also be able to revisit our glory days of the late 90’s when we were called the “ENTERTAINERS” under Kevin Keegan. All these years we have hoped and hoped dreamt and dreamt that someday our wish will come true. Mind you we never desired a team that will win trophies year in and year out we just wanted a team who would bring back the smile on our faces when we watch them play. After all these years the last 4 months bought that hope back and we started to believe and dream that the time has come for us to challenge the big boys up the table but after waiting patiently and agonizingly for such a long time which affected many of our supporters mental health but here we are again back to where we belong. I just want to ask you MR Masters why has your team taken such a long time to give their verdict when no red flags have been found against the prospective buyers. A club like Newcastle who has such a hard and loyal band of supporters in the entire world, do they deserve this? You haven’t communicated with us nor have you done anything to speed up the O&D process and just sat on it playing delayed tactics so that no one could blame you once the buyer’s patience ran out . A football club exists because of its supporters and you are there to communicate and do what’s good for the clubs and it’s fan base not to show discrimination against them. I am not a resident of Newcastle but still I am feeling this bad so imagine how the true Geordies might feel what you have done to them. Still I think you can rectify the situation by approving the takeover and help rebuild the trust among the fans which has faded due to the current situation. I on behalf of all the Newcastle United fans around the world request you to please approve the takeover as it will not only be beneficial to our club and community but also the Premier League as a whole. I hope you will react positively to this mail.

    hope the twat replys

    See that the Club web site has no news of current affairs.
    Just showing the new home strip in a vain hope that some will pay £65 for the shirt.

    Somethings don’t change.

    We better get used to the idea that these are the type of players we will be bringing in under Ashley.
    Our only class player ASM will no doubt be sold unfortunately, and the money raised will be the transfer kitty, if Bruce is lucky.
    Nufc, you can read it like a book.

    So other clubs in the prem can make the call ?
    Based on politics , or is it they don’t want competition ?

    It’s either corruption or any notion of the league being anything else than elaborate entertainment shown for what it is

    How many posters are prepared to face reality?:
    1 Saudi have blatantly been pirating TV rights from EPL, then have the brass neck to want to kindly belong to join EPL.
    2 All the above is quite possible, given Saudi can raise any size of bung required to overcome little (cough) legal difficulty
    3 Qatar cite legally bomb-proof clauses eagerly signed by EPL which shady saudi dealings prove unable to defeat
    4 EPL say “Look, Saudi, we’re tied in legally and have no ability to pass this test, you don’t want us to refuse you, so I suggest you back off and,maybe, come up with a cleverer deal next time.No hard feelings, mate, Qatar have us tied up in knots”
