Newcastle United is still working on reinforcements in the winter transfer window. As Fabrizio Romano tells, “Magpies” is close to bringing a new stopwatch. However, they have to pay a lot for it.
Recently, the Newcastle team had new owners. The sheikhs of Saudi Arabia will not spare any money on reinforcements. Kieran Trippier has already joined the club.
The priority now is to recruit a new striker as well as a central defender. For the latter role, Lille’s Sven Putman, who was also targeted by Milan, was prosecuted for a long time.
But for now, a transition for Seville’s stopwatch, Diego Carlos, appears to be the most likely. According to Fabrizio Romano, Newcastle have already taken a very important step towards finalizing the entire deal.
He made an agreement with the player himself on the terms of his individual contract. The Brazilian will join the Premier League team on a five-year contract.
Now, however, “magpie” should correspond to Seville. So far, the English have offered 35 million euros to the player. This amount does not satisfy the Andalusian team.
Carlos’ contract, which runs until 2025, contains a compensation clause of 85 million euros. Newcastle will certainly not spend a lot of money, but it is possible to increase their current supply significantly.
