Sevilla Tell Newcastle They Will Sell Carlos For £38M – But Spurs Active In The Bidding



Neil has just reported on the news about Seville’s Diego Carlos, with Sky Sports saying that Seville will sell their top center-back for €45M, which is about £38M.

The good news is that Newcastle are still in negotiations for the Brazilian center-back with the Spanish club and have had their most recent offer of £30M was rejected.

What would normally happen is Newcastle go back with £34M, but maybe Newcastle have to be more decisive and offer the £38M, as long as Seville say they will accept that amount.

But it’s understood that the £30M offer has already been matched by Spurs.

So now it looks to be a two-club auction for Carlos.

So this seems like in days of old, when we hang on and on, trying to get the very best deal for a player, only for another club to come in as competition at the very end, and get the player.

That happened back in January of 2015 when we thought we had Deli Alli all set for £5M, but we then haggled over agents fees, only for – yes Tottenham – to come in and sign the player for £5M plus agents fees.

But maybe we will not lose out on this deal, as we have in the past under the former owner.

What Newcastle need to do now is pay that money and hope Spurs cannot or will not match it.

We have already agreed terms with Carlos, and from what we have read, he wants to come to Newcastle.

So if we now lose out on this player, it will not be good.

In fact, it will be embarrassing.

What do you think?

    If Spurs offer matches us on transfer and wages he’s only going to one place.

    But does that potentially open the door for a move for Sanchez? Solid PL defender who is a massive upgrade in what we have already.

    Brighton will not allow Bissouma to leave unless we offer over 50 million, he’s obviously not worth that

    Yeah it works out at 46M so someone is being a bit conservative with the truth.

    If Bissouma is clear of his police issue, i would pay £50m+ for him, would transform our midfield straightaway.

    SuperShearer,

    Sanchez?!??!? UPGRADE?!?!?!? The lad doesn’t know his left from his right let alone how to defend, he’s a total flop.

    ACH!

    Never thought I’d be jaded in this way by the transfer window. Was really excited at first and tried to keep up with all of the players I’d never heard of by watching videos etc. But the way the individual sagas, goal post movings and discrepancies in accounts have unfolded, I’ll be glad when the window shuts and we can just concentrate on events on field however our squad looks.

    Still all to play for.

    Excited to see how it all pans out.

    WLToon – most reports are saying he won’t take a perm transfer regardless – Manure don’t want to loan him – hence it ain’t gonna happen

    I don’t think Lingaard is that important a piece of the jigsaw.

    I think Joe will do the same job everyone thinks Lingaard will do once we have a good defensive midfielder that frees him up.

    We already have Joe and we need a new CDM, so better to buy a CDM than risk money on Lingaard…I think there’s something off with him.

    Onwards and upwards

    Cannavaro was indeed a fine defender, it will be interesting to see if he takes the Watford job.

    DrGloom,
    Look at it another way. Lingard doesn’t want a permanent move anywhere because he wants a fee-free wage offer in the summer. Man U only want to sell him for the transfer fee which can only realistically be around £7M, we need to offer a loan fee not far from that.

    Ranieri sacked,

    Then it gets interesting…does a 0-0 draw suit us best ?

    They have lost seven of their previous eight Premier League games and next travel to relegation rivals Burnley on Saturday 5 February in a huge game at the bottom of the table.

    The Hornets have lost 11 of their 14 games under Ranieri, 10 in the Premier League and a 4-1 loss to Leicester in the third round of the FA Cup.

    Apparently some fans (not many) believe that Eddie can coach Delli Ali or rub some magic oil on his legs to transform him into the player of 4 years ago. Poch and Conte have run out of oil

    Spurs suddenly feel the need to bid for Carlos ?

    That smells a bit of a slimy six club trying to reduce the talent pool for competitors

    No guarantee that Spurs will be top 4 and in Europe. Their massively in debt so how does Levy find the money ?

    The clever player will look beyond this season to see where the real potential, passion and money lies for the longer term.

    Joining United is the thinking mans choice.

    Maybe they should have been rubbing the oil on his head. In any event they have used it all up on his legs and only Eddie has any oil left from the big Joe rubathon
