Newcastle want Neymar after Determining Ronaldo is Bad Choice. OMG
According to reports, Newcastle United is considering a transfer move for Neymar this summer, as they have determined that Cristiano Ronaldo is not a good fit for the club.
The Magpies’ ownership is said to be contemplating a deal to sign the Brazilian from PSG, with the club reportedly able to afford his arrival as they look to add a left-sided attacker to their squad in the upcoming transfer window. Neymar has already dropped a cryptic hint about his future by liking a tweet that referred to PSG as a “small club.”
Although Ronaldo has also been discussed as a potential target, he is not seen as a player who would fit seamlessly into Eddie Howe’s squad. On the other hand, Neymar is seen as a more attainable target, with PSG apparently willing to sanction a deal. PSG’s ultras recently staged a protest outside Neymar’s Paris home, urging him to leave the club.
However, the Parisian side knows that it will be almost impossible to recoup the world-record £194.3 million they paid to sign him, and they have set an asking price of around £75 million for the Brazilian international.
Despite being sidelined, Neymar is hoping to end the season with the Ligue 1 title, with PSG currently five points clear of second-placed Marseille with five games left to play.
In a recent interview, when asked to describe Manchester United hero Cristiano Ronaldo in one word, Neymar gave a one-word answer, which was not mentioned in the article.
