Report Claims Chelsea Will Beat Newcastle In Wonderkid Race



Over the weekend, it was reported that Newcastle have identified Vasco da Gama midfielder Andrey Santos as the top target for the winter window. The Northern Echo claimed the Magpies were set to make their move after months of links to the playmaker.

However, Sport Witness is citing a report from France’s Le10Sport that Santos is close to committing to Chelsea, who seem to have come out of the blue for the talented teen. Barcelona was Newcastle’s closest competitor according to recent reports.

The French outlet’s angle on their report is that Chelsea have edged not only Newcastle and Barcelona but also PSG for Santos. There is some discrepancy in the reporting as the price quoted is just €15m which is around half of his previously reported valuation.

If this report is accurate, with considerable emphasis on the ‘if’, Newcastle have other budding stars on the shortlist. There are continual reports that Velez Sarsfield playmaker Maximo Perrone is high on the wishlist.

The Argentine club’s sporting director is none other than former Magpie Christian Bassedas, who roamed the midfield at St. James’ Park in the early 2000s. Newcastle World recently reported that Bassedas was on Tyneside to tie up a deal for Perrone. Though the claim arose from a podcast in Argentina.

Whether it’s Santos, Perrone, or another young gem, Newcastle are determined to add youthful quality to the ranks in January. Garang Kuol’s move becomes official while links to right-backs Harrison Ashby and Cody Drameh refuse to dry up.

    I don’t think Southgate wants to win this game so England won’t face the Netherlands. What a negative jerk. This is a game that we could do something positive but “alas” as Shakespeare would have said.

    Sir Pug @139, that is surely can’t be true, so I checked and you’re right. How blimin bizarre.

    So the media, many fans and pundits were super critical of England after awful draw vs USA. Now they’ll all be saying England will win and are greatest thing since sliced bread as they beat a truly poor wales side.

    ottawageordie2 I agree although who do they turn to?

    *Steve Bruce has a fantastic record as manager, is loved by everybody, let’s players have several days off each week and won’t ever resign from a job. Plus won’t ever do an allardyce as he’s not short of money from all his payouts.
    *Potter- I doubt he’d leave Chelsea anytime soon.
    *Howe- no way, not happening. Look elsewhere.
    *Gerrard- poor choice, would need someone more senior to work alongside him.
    *Foreign manager such as mourinho, who wouldn’t be a bad choice imo.
