Paris Saint-Germain had Ezequiel Lavezzi and Javier Pastore, Manchester City a little earlier Yaya Toure, Robinho, and Sergio Aguero. Now, Newcastle is also looking for aces, because with all due respect, Chris Wood, regardless of the price of 30,000,000 euros, and Kieran Trippier are simply not a magnet for other players.
And the new owners of Magpies really need megastars, to break the ice and attract others to St. James's Park, so this winter there is constant talk about an ambitious wish list of sheiks from Saudi Arabia. This is still a dead letter on paper, with time slowly running out, so the stakes are higher, even in the period when those masters in crisis are left without a choice.
Therefore, some really famous names in the texts related to Newcastle's transfer plans. From Ousmane Dembele and Eden Hazard, through Duvan Zapata and Robin Gosens, all the way to Diego Carlos and Benoît Badiashile.
It is also rumored that Donnie van de Beek and Anthony Martial have already refused to go on loan from Manchester United to the north of England. And the others? There are interesting details here. Catalan Sport writes that Newcastle is seriously worried about Ousmane Dembele, who refuses to extend his contract with Barcelona, although the neighboring Mundo Deportivo gives better chances to Manchester United and Bayern.
Sport still knows how to hit and claims that Newcastle wants Dembele to be their Robinho in January. Other Spanish sources, less reliable, claim that Newcastle saved 40,000,000 euros plus another 10,000,000 in bonuses for Eden Hazard and that this is enough for Real Marid, but that the Belgian is not yet convinced that St.
James Park is the right choice.
Newcastle sent an offer for Nunez, Badiashile, Gosens
Further, the verified Italians write that Atalanta received specific offers for Duvan Zapata and Robin Gosens. After Benfica refused to release Darwin Nunez, the Magpies headed for the West and sent an official offer of 30,000,000 euros, it was flatly rejected, Atalanta might agree if it rises to 40,000,000 to 45,000,000.
A salary of 6,000,000 euros per season is ready for the 31-year-old striker. Robin Gossens would get less, about 3,500,000 euros plus bonuses, but nothing from the job if the club from Bergamo does not draw between 30,000,000 and 35,000.00 euros in compensation.
More verified news is coming to us from France, the respected L'Equipe claims that Monaco rejected Newcastle's 40,000,000 euros for central defender Benoît Badiashile. Sevilla's Diego Carlos is also a strong option for the central defender, for which Newcastle would give around 35,000,000 euros, the Magpies desperately need a central defender, considering that they have already conceded 43 goals this season.
Finally, Christian Eriksen is mentioned, although the question is how much he would be a reinforcement, having in mind that he has paused for the past six months due to heart problems, and Newcastle is threatened with relegation from the Premier League. It's not all about money.
