Details Of Asking Price For Attacker Reveal What Newcastle Have Faced In This Window



There are details emerging this morning on why Newcastle’s pursuit of Jesse Lingard took a sudden turn south. The Mail is reporting that Manchester United are asking for what would amount to in excess of £15m to allow the 29-year-old to leave on loan for the season’s final five months.

The report, by Chris Wheeler, is backing prior claims that interim manager Ralf Rangnick gave the move his blessing. However, discussions with the Man U hierarchy have proven infuriating with their inflated demands.

Newcastle were being asked to pay a substantial loan fee, a massive bonus should we survive, and all of Lingard’s £80-100k/week in wages. This just reeks of a fleecing by The Red Devils knowing Newcastle are in a desperate situation.

These are the types of excessive asking prices Newcastle have faced in this window. The owners are right to walk away as it sets a dangerous precedent moving forward. The glaring issue now becomes who can we add to ensure survival.

It is shaping up to be a frantic final stretch in this window. Newcastle need at least another center-back, a midfielder, and an attacker to increase their chances of ending this season outside the bottom three.

Who Was Newcastle's Man Of The Match In Massive Win At Leeds?

    Mund – it’s just a meme. It’s impossible to believe that if Halsey said that or wrote that then it wouldn’t be MAJOR news all over the media.

    I’ll donate £50 to Sir Bobby Robson’s foundation if we can go one comments section without an insult.

    BREAKING: Newcastle have agreed a fee with Lyon for midfielder Bruno Guimarães.
    We understand the deal is in the region of £30m.
    The Brazilian international will undergo a medical in his homeland, hopefully today

    Is that right? What because the media are just as trustworthy right?

    Look I can appreciate you have a different opinion as each to their own but like I said I’m not here to try and convince you about anything.

    The world isn’t as black and white as you think

    Not surprising to see every hand raised against us. I have no problem with NUFC sticking to their guns and refusing to be fleeced. It would set an awful precedent. I’m hopeful we will get one or two more through closer to the deadline when clubs see we will not be taken for mugs and realise they need the cash injection we are able to supply.

    TCPrince I’m with you, If the top six can go behind all the other teams, they can certainly agree not to deal with us. What’s happening with the Lingard loan is a disgrace.

    Peter,

    Insults towards me don’t count and I’m glad you’ve decided to match my offer.

    I’m genuinely serious. It would raise the question to anyone about to insult somebody with common interests (the success of Newcastle), do I want to insult someone and forfeit £50 to a charity we all appreciate.

    If anyone does, they should really question themselves or at least donate as a form of swear jar haha

    Mund – nobody is saying the world is black and white, I’ve argued exactly the same point here as many people seem to believe things have to be one extreme or another.

    But I’m asking a genuine question of why would you choose to believe this as fact? There’s so much rubbish online and you certainly know this. Why would you see a meme and believe it as fact when there is literally zero evidence to prove it as fact?

    Surely it’s a good thing to actually establish the facts and then we can all have our own opinions on those facts? If you believe a prank as fact then every opinion you have that’s based on it is flawed.

    Anyone can argue whether Dummett or Lewis are the best left back in our squad but if you argue it on the basis that Dummett has 40 caps for England then your argument is obviously flawed!

    carltoon – As I’ve said (multiple times), people can believe whatever they want to believe. But when they post something as fact (a seemingly made up quote), that should be confronted.

    carltoon – Fantasy is great but shouldn’t be presented as reality. That causes a problem when others see it, believe it as fact too, and that affects their opinion on reality.

    It s a local media close to the club.

    So i trust this news.

    In my opinion, this NUFC syndrom of this window: they think they could have more money from us.

    Mund – can you honestly tell me why you believe that to be true when there’s no actual source for him saying it? It’s literally ONE meme that is doing the rounds with zero written, audio, or video evidence of him saying it. And you honestly believe that none of the mainstream media would pick up on that and run a tonne of stories for such a controversial statement? It would be HUGE news!

    Do you question what you read online?

    Bruno Guimares set to undergo a medical, looks like this one is nearing completion and would an absolutely stellar signing which immeasurably improves our midfield. Ticks so many boxes, is tenacious at covering ground in the midfield, recycles the ball quickly, has an outstanding passing range, can carry the ball forward through the lines. Would be a masterstroke if we can pull this one off.

    Saves us from relegation on his own, he is that bloody good.
