Coutinho, Navas and Bale could be on the English club’s wish list
Bought for around 300 million pounds (R$2.2 billion) by a Saudi Arabian investment fund last week, Newcastle is Europe’s rich new club. The news shook the football world, which is already eager to find out what the ambitions of the English team, which are currently second-bottom in the Premier League, without a win in seven games played, will be.
Clubs purchased a few years ago, such as PSG and Manchester City, began to invest in the soccer market and form real teams. The two teams, today, are among the main teams in Europe, even though they have not won the Champions League.
Newcastle’s current coach Steve Bruce is unlikely to remain in office. For his place, according to the Daily Mirror, the club considered Zidane and Rafa Benitez. The names of Antonio Conte and Roberto Mancini were also speculated.
Bolavip has separated some players that can be hired by the “new rich”.
The Brazilian, who belongs to Barcelona, hasn’t lived a big phase since leaving Liverpool, where he shone in England. With a value of around 30 million euros (R$ 192 million), Coutinho, according to the newspaper Sport, is one of those quoted to command the team’s midfield.
They say every great team starts with a great goalkeeper, and Newcastle’s new owners seem to agree with the phrase. Costa Rican Keylor Naves, according to The Sun newspaper, may assume the team’s jersey. Navas was three-time Champions League champion with Real Madrid, and is currently at PSG. A fact that could help in the transfer is that, at the French club, he is fighting for a spot with the young, promising and newcomer Donnarumma.
Garath Bale is another player who spent time with Real Madrid and who can paint at Newcastle, also according to The Sun. The Welshman has not been shining at the merengue club, and may return to England, where he stood out wearing the Tottenham shirt.
The newspaper Marca classifies the French striker, currently at Barcelona, as a viable possibility for Newcastle. Barcelona are not having a good financial moment, and selling the youngster to the rich new club in England could be a good deal for everyone.
Another Barcelona player who could end up painting in England, still in Marca’s analysis, is the 29-year-old Spaniard Sergi Roberto, who works at right-back and also in midfield.
The 21-year-old Norwegian is featured in Borussia Dortmund and speculated in major European clubs. To Talksport, ex-Newcastle player Warren Barton suggested hiring the striker. There’s nothing official yet, but if you follow the ex-athlete’s advice, the club can give it a try.
Another name that was suggested by Barton is that of Englishman Raheem Sterling, currently at Manchester City. Sterling is 26 years old and is also active in attack at the front.
