Newcastle’s Second Maddison Bid Rejected As Early Work On Another Target In Jeopardy



Leicester City have officially rejected Newcastle’s latest offer for James Maddison. The bid, which various reports have anywhere from £40-50m, did not come close to matching Maddison’s £60m price tag, especially considering it was a staggered offer.

Sky Sports’ Keith Downie has issued the following update with Newcastle now forced to regroup on whether to make another offer or move on to other targets.

For any offer to be accepted, Newcastle are just going to have to go for broke with the bulk of the fee paid upfront. Leicester must sell before buying and would also need significant funds on hand to replace their playmaker

In other news, early work on Burnley’s Maxwel Cornet may come to naught. Sky Sports is reporting that West Ham have entered initial talks for the 25-year-old, who has a £17.5m release clause.

Before bidding for Maddison this past weekend, Newcastle started negotiations for Cornet. Reports claimed a structured deal similar to the one reached for Nick Pope was being discussed with the eventual outlay surpassing his release clause amount.

West Ham have now jumped in for the Ivorian, who was held out of Burnley’s 1-0 win at Huddersfield on Saturday. Everton also held talks earlier in the window but were unable to reach an agreement.

    Would hate for us to become a club that won stuff. How boring. Spending big money on the best players in the world.

    Shame though because thats where we are heading. Too slow for some though. Bless em. I mean we have been so successful in my lifetime why would i be patient, i expect better from a club that has generally drained my energy.

    I actually like that we are determined to drive a hard bargain. We can’t just fhriw money around, very bad optics, but also very bad form. Much better for the long term health and success of the club to do it all right, which we appear to be striving to achieve. I want Maddison dearly, but at a fair price for all parties. If we don’t get him, it’ll be because Leicester or the player’s agent is asking for too much, or Maddison himself knocks it back.

    We can moan All we want, but if they can’t get the players they want, I’m sure it won’t be because they haven’t tried their hardest,
    But of course your welcome to your informed well thought out opinions.
    They’re very good read.

    Yeah, even now we’ve got a side that we can be sure will deliver value on the match day ticket, something we haven’t had in a long while. That’s all you really can ask for, but we are gonna get a whole lot more. We are a rising tide, and can’t be stopped.

    I like the hard bargaining as well but still not sure about offering 40 million for a player is probably worth 60 million
    If we really want him we should go in somewhere near their valuation.
    He could be a season changer

    It’s quite conceivable that we’ll start against Forest with no new players. Howe might go with Dubravka instead of Pope and Burn instead of Botman and Targett was already here. What a spectacular anti-climax that would be.

    Amanda Staveley has stated we want to win the PL in 5/6 years, we are still currently in year 1.
    The board have a plan in place and journo’s, fans and other clubs will bleat, scream and demand actions to disrupt the plan . GOOD LUCK!

    We don’t need Pacqueta or Maddison to beat Forrest or Brighton
    .
    Wilson, ASM, Almiron, Joelinton and Bruno are more than good enough to secure us the points

    But having someone like Maddison available against City or Liverpool could be a difference maker for sneaking a result or properly giving them a fright

    I get that and you’re right – but its nufc and its all played out in the media whether its rightor made up rubbish
    The problem is we fans lap up every bit of it and the media know it. Same as sky sportsknow they can televise the matches and still get sold out and a massive TV audience

    Clint – I Do.
    We seem to be doing business which tells other clubs we wont be held to ransom. Almost as important as getting the player themselves to create a culture with agents and other clubs. Owners are here to stay so are creating a brand. Professional, Resourceful, and Business like.
    Shud buy Maddison though. He is worth 60 million to this current team.

    Miggy will score a worldy against Forest. Wood won’t ever. Very impressed with the new ASM as well, now he realises he is not the only person in our team and get the second after a one two with Wilson.

    Sorry, just caught up. No I didn’t leave my imaginary outfit in a gay club, although I have been to Rockshots before, once,…..very seedy.
    I probably left it in Magic’s Red Room
