Obertan Out, French International In…
The report in French media outlet Franceinfo claims that both Liverpool and Newcastle are interested in signing Jeremy Menez in the summer.
The French international midfielder/striker will only have a year left on his contract come June and at 26 he would be in the right ball park in terms of age.
The fact though that Menez is a regular for moneybags PSG may prove a bit of a hindrance to any potential deal, they are the one club in France who have no problem paying big wages.
While another French international arriving at St.James’ Park this summer wouldn’t be the most surprising news given what has happened in recent times, the landing of a player like Menez would be another big step in the right direction.
However, maybe the reports from France are just too good to be true because Franceinfo also claim that Gabriel Obertan could be on his way out of Newcastle this summer.
That kind of player trading, Menez for Obertan, would be my kind of Fantasy Football (Transfers) and a Europa League conquest wouldn’t do our chances of landing transfer targets any harm at all.
