Apparently Erling Braut Haaland isn’t coming to Newcastle United. Who knew?!
Since the Newcastle takeover was completed last week, the Magpies have been linked with a ridiculous number of players.
It’s actually frightening how many targets we apparently have. However, how many of them are actually legitimate targets remains to be seen.
Some of the names being linked are so big you wonder if they’d even want to join Newcastle right now. Despite our riches, we’re still second bottom in the Premier League.
But unfortunately Borussia Dortmund’s number nine is someone who isn’t interested in a move to St James’ Park.
That’s according to German journalist Christian Falk, who tweeted the following…
Where do you begin? Of course Haaland isn’t considering a move to Newcastle. Why would he want to go from leading the line for a Champions League club to Callum Wilson’s backup?!
I jest, but the fact Falk has even felt the need to confirm Haaland’s lack of interest in joining the Magpies is laughable.
Newcastle might be incredibly rich all of a sudden, but that doesn’t mean the best players in the world will immediately want to join.
The club is still battling relegation, and is nowhere near challenging for Europe.
Just getting into the top half will be difficult for Newcastle, such is the standard in the Premier League right now.
Maybe when Newcastle are challenging for Premier League and Champions League glory Haaland will be interested. But right now he reportedly isn’t, and nor should he be.
Fans have reacted to Falk’s tweet, and all they can do is laugh.
