Real Madrid: Newcastle, the new rich of English football wants to quickly bet on a former Lyonnais
Everything is accelerating in the Premier League. 19th in the championship with only three small points since the start of the season, the Newcastle club have become in just a few days the richest club in the world. The Magpies were bought by the PIF (the Saudi public investment fund) and a wealth estimated at nearly 400 billion dollars or about 346 billion euros.
And with this money, the new leaders intend to make Newcastle a stronghold of football in the coming years. First step, strengthen the workforce and if we are to believe information from « AS », the Premier League club is thinking of bringing in Mariano Diaz. The former Lyon player is not playing for Real Madrid and he is not part of coach Carlo Ancelotti’s plans. Suddenly, the two formations could get along well for a transfer up to 10 million euros.
The profile of the 28-year-old Spanish striker very much appeals to the new bosses of the Magpies and they would like to make him their head of the gondola in order to help the team to straighten the bar in the league from the winter transfer window in 2022. To be continued … But Real should not oppose a departure of the former Lyon.
