Bought by a Saudi fund for 352 million euros, Newcastle will once again be able to join the big league in the Premier League. The English club has a budget of 220 million euros to seriously strengthen its team in January with five players already targeted.
Icardi is targeted by Newcastle for January.
We have the same ambitions as Manchester City and PSG in terms of trophies, it’s true but it will take time. Yes, we want to win the Premier League in five ten years.
After fifteen years of suffering, Magpies supporters can once again dream of the buyout of their club for 352 million euros by a Saudi fund. Designated as the richest team in the world , Newcastle could set the January transfer window on fire. With five players already in the sights!
Tarkowski and Kamara soon to end of contract
The first recruit of this new era should be named James Tarkowski (28). Fairly unknown outside the borders of the Kingdom, the central defender has been a reference in the Premier League (166 games) for five seasons. A time announced in the sights of Arsenal, the English international, whose contract expires next June with Burnley, could rally St James’ Park for 20 million euros, or three times less than the sum claimed by his club he still a year ago.
Another player in a similar situation remains targeted by Newcastle. This is Boubacar Kamara (21). The versatile defender has still not extended with Olympique de Marseille, who turned down an offer of 14 million euros last summer. With the new objectives of the British formation, the Frenchman could be much more attentive to this interest, the more so as a very comfortable salary would be promised to him in the event of six months of the end of his contract.
In the offensive sector, several players lacking confidence in their respective teams are very interested in the new owners. This is particularly the case of Philippe Coutinho (29), at the end of the race at FC Barcelona. Estimated at 30 million euros, the Brazilian attacking midfielder, open to the idea of returning to the Premier League, could be pushed out by his leaders, who will have to pay Liverpool 10 million if he plays another 4 games.
Luxury joker at Paris Saint-Germain, Mauro Icardi (28) is also on Newcastle’s shortlist. Under contract until June 2024, the Argentine striker will not be selected in the event of an offer of around 40 million euros. At his side, the name of Anthony Martial (25 years old) is also mentioned. Marketed by Manchester United, the French international, barred by strong competition from Old Trafford, is estimated at 45 million euros while his lease expires in June 2024.
€ 220 million for the winter transfer window
To complete all these cases, Newcastle also has a particularly comfortable envelope. According to the local press, it is estimated at 220 million euros, only for the January market. A hell of a jackpot for a training that has spent only 621 million euros, against 437 million euros in sales, over the fourteen years of Mike Ashley’s reign. Suffice to say that the Toons clearly intend to change dimension!
