Newcastle Monitoring The Situation Of Another Star On Expiring Contract – Report



One of Newcastle’s plans in the winter window appears to be targeting players on expiring contracts. Over the weekend, a report claimed Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marcus Thuram had hit the shortlist.

The French international will have just six months left on his contract in January. He seems headed for the open market with Gladbach unable to tie down their star striker on a new deal.

Newcastle World has cited reports from France that Lyon attacking midfielder Houssem Aouar is still an option for Newcastle. The 24-year-old was initially linked soon after the summer window closed and like Thuram, seems destined to become a free agent at season’s end.

After a tumultuous summer in which Aouar was desperate to depart Lyon, he found himself frozen out by manager Peter Bosz. However, the former Leverkusen boss was sacked in October after a tepid start.

In came Laurent Blanc, who immediately placed his compatriot into his starting eleven. Aouar started the final six matches before the World Cup break scoring 1 goal. He has still yet to commit his future to the club he has spent his entire career with.

Newcastle are reportedly keeping their eyes on the talented midfielder. However, AC Milan are leading the chase and Lyon may decide to sell Aouar to the highest bidder in January rather than lose their Academy product for nothing.

His price tag in recent years was as high as £40m but he’ll be available for a fraction of that this winter. The talented Frenchman could be one to watch when the winter opens as he’ll fill a creative need on Tyneside.

    Argentina are a pile of shite. Passing too slow and Saudi look more athletic aggressive and slightly more powerful physically. I think they can be discounted for the tournament, early days though it is

    The defending from them is sensational. The Irish commentator is saying Al-Shahrani is having a Paul Mcgrath day. Lol such an Irish thing to say.

    Argentina really turning the screw now, I love shocks in football and would love to see a Saudi victory, but they will do well to hold onto the lead in this match, I think it will end up 2-2

    Renard is the only coach in the world to have win two times the ACN with two different teams ( Zambia in 2012 wich was an uncredible result and Ivory Coast in 2015 ).

    With Saudi Arabia, he reached the final of the Gulf Cup in 2019.

    He’s famous for is offensive style of play…

    Also, my english friends, he did coach in England… Cambridge United in the Fourth division ( in 2004 )!

    Speaking of France, the predicted team for tonight.

    4-3-3

    Lloris
    L. Hernandez – Konaté – Upamecano – Pavard
    Rabiot – Tchouaméni – Griezmann
    Mbappé – Giroud – Dembélé

    So a brand new central defense, Griezmann low on the pitch playing like an 8, and Dembélé rather than Coman.

    10/10 saudi arabia v argies a massive win, the lad who scored the second goal looks very good along with the goalie i thought few of there defenders got stuck in as well excellent game, the problem is this extra time bullshit its just mind boggling how the hell they find all them extra minutes
