As soon as the rich Saudis bought and took over Newcastle, hysteria began in the world media about the future steps of the club, which became one of the richest in the world overnight. It is clear that the new owners have a similar goal as the Arabs in Manchester City or Paris Saint-Germain, which will mean spending a lot of money and bringing in playing and coaching stars.
A bunch of names has been mentioned in the context of a possible arrival at St. James Park but without any specific information. It all ended in speculation ... Now, there are confirmations about the first "popular" name that is interested in moving to Newcastle.
It is the central defender of Bayern and the German national team, Niklas Sule. The strong defender has entered the last year of his contract with Bayern and there are no indications that an agreement on the extension of cooperation will be reached.
Bayern want to keep him but did not offer him the conditions that the player expected and the negotiations were interrupted. Unlike Kimich and Goretzka, who signed new long-term contracts, the Bavarians do not seem to believe that Sule is worth the effort in the negotiations and a significant increase.
Chelsea and Newcastle
And he is aware that he is winning no matter how it turns. If he gets a raise at Bayern, he will stay. If he doesn’t win, he will go to another club. This summer, Chelsea was interested in him, and now Newcastle has taken a bite.
According to the information of the well-informed Christian Falk, his agents got in touch with Newcastle three weeks ago and told the English club that Sule is in the mood to listen to the offer. It is important for Newcastle to immediately start attracting big names, and the defender of Bayern and the German national team certainly is, and he could hope for a luxury contract in St.
James Park as one of the first to move his foot to take the Arab petrodollars. A defender of his quality would be a capital reinforcement for this Newcastle team, and the club would do well because they would not have to pay compensation.
The question is how easy it will be for Newcastle to bring in a couple of "famous" players right from the start. They will certainly have to be patient, because the new project cannot be completed immediately, and it will take a lot of time to become a stable team at the top of the league.
