Claim Of Summer Bid For International Striker Seems Highly Unlikely

Newcastle have been linked with Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik since last season. While it always appeared that the link was contingent on a successful Saudi takeover, reports continued to link the 26-year-old with a move to Newcastle well into the summer window.

Milik’s contract saga with Napoli has been well-publicized over the past year. The Serie A club have tried to tie down the Polish international for quite some time. However, Milik has rejected all offers.

The club attempted to sell their striker during the summer but found no takers. With his contract running out next summer, they may have to offload him on the cheap in January to get anything for him.

Sport Witness is citing a strange claim from Vincenzo Morabito that Newcastle had a bid of around £22m rejected for Milik this summer. That seems very unlikely.

It is also a big doubt that Milik would join Newcastle over a club that competes in Europe. However, as it stands, the striker is frozen out at Napoli at the moment and has not played a game this season.

With the European Championships fast approaching, he’ll have to find a resolution to his situation or risk missing out next summer. Newcastle could possibly provide a temporary fix by bringing him on loan in January.

However, there will likely be other clubs interesting in a bargain deal for the 55 times capped Polish International. Napoli will likely want a permanent transfer in January to recoup some of the near £30m they paid for him in 2013.

    Sorry missed the bus:

    My guess is that the legal case is to question why the league felt the evidence provided by the consortium to show PIF and the state are seperate, was not adequate for them. They could then pry this question further by suggesting outside influences against the deal, asking to see evidence of any outside correspondence surrounding the deal and bring that into question. Which would coincide with questioning why no decision has been made by the league yet. Again questioning whether any outside influences are making the league not accept the deal.

    With his reputation I don’t think De Marco would accept the case if he didn’t believe Newcastle/Ashley had a strong one. Why would he take on the league and risk losing a case when he has such a good track record?

    Why would Ashley be taking the PL to court for not getting a answer?

    The buyers pulled out in March, there’s no sale to approve or deny!

    Doesn’t matter if Ashley hasn’t pulled the sale, in a public statement the PIF said they were out, there’s NO BUYER atm.

    Going into court and demanding a answer on a sale to a buyer that no longer exists, imo would be laughed out of court and I can’t see Ashley wasting money or De Marco taking on such a pointless case.

    Mr Master, could you explain why you haven’t approved the sale of Nufc to err err no one?

    Makes no sense whatsoever, if the PIF and state can’t be proved to be separate theres no deal.

    This is the info and answers we have.

    The prem weren’t happy with evidence provided and asked for more, Saudi pulled out.

    The only legal dispute Nufc can have is regarding the pif and state being separate.

    Trembling in the corner here as I reckon that’s what us cowards should do & if I were to give out any advice which I obviously wouldn’t. I would never tell everyone how respectful I was preceded by a tirade of name calling and abuse cos I’d think people wouldn’t believe me

    We as fans shouldn’t be trying to make sense of it we are not supposed to be able to make sense of it. Leave it to the people who matter in this and let the fight be done behind closed doors.

    Sorry again but it does matter, if the club have not written to the PL and informed them that the offer has been withdrawn, the deal is still in place.

    The PIF have mentioned in press releases that if they were given guarantees that they would pass the O&D test they would come back to the table…

    This legal action is Ashley trying to get the aforementioned guarantees.

    What I don’t understand with fans like yourself is your either on one side or the other but you seem to float between both just at the edges. Your hope went up with the DeMarco tweets however little it was and now your back down again questioning the lot. It’s tiresome. If you don’t believe anything why try to downplay others who are more positive?

    to put the record straight the main reason i had to take my missus to town today is she got a phone call off BOOTS THE CHEMIST from the the Pharmacist
    asking to pop in to have a chat with her about the new medications and to pick them up in person so he can have a chat with her about her meds as she will be on them for the rest of her life . so i thought while we were in town i’d but her something nice to cheer her up so what was so bad in that then i get slated for it .get called a liar , .

    i aint a liar my mam never brought me up to lie , i never brought my kids up to tell lies .

    so to certain people on here and you know who you are keep your thoughts to yourselvs if you dont mind …
