Edinson Cavani is a target for the new Newcastle owners, according to ESPN.
These crazy rumours just aren’t going to stop, are they?
As it stands, Cavani will become a free agent this summer when his contract at PSG expires. And ESPN claim that the prospective owners have been in touch with the striker’s agent, as well as Dries Mertens’ representative.
It’s hard to imagine going from Joelinton to Cavani. One is the club’s record signing who has massively struggled with the number nine on his back. The other is PSG’s all time leading goalscorer and one of the best forwards of this generation. And he probably doesn’t even know where Newcastle is…
Right now, these rumours seem silly. But it will only take one crazy deal to be completed for fans to truly start dreaming of the world’s best lining up in black and white at St James’ Park.
And there could also be a world class manager in the dugout. Steve Bruce is the man in charge currently, but ESPN claim that the new owners are interested in a bigger name.
They list Rafa Benitez, Max Allegri, Mauricio Pochettino and Lucien Favre as possible candidates.
While a lot of talk is about the ethical issues of the Saudis involvement, it’s hard not to pinch yourself right now as a Newcastle fan.
All signs suggest the £300million takeover is pretty much complete, with confirmation from the Premier League the only thing that is missing.
When the deal is completed, we all know what to do – CANS.
