Latest Newcastle Transfer Rumour Proves They Really Do Believe Newcastle Fans Are Thick

8 years ago

I have a simple process when sifting through the ever growing list of Newcastle United transfer rumours.

Well actually it has been very simple this summer, you could just ignore every one of them as nobody has been bought in and nothing looking imminent.

Anyway, my system is basically to look first at which league the ‘target’ is currently playing in.

If it is the English Premier League than I just turn the page, the way wages have gone in this country Newcastle are almost guaranteed not to be able (or want) to satisfy the expectations of any player, Darren Bent the most recent example.

On the other hand, you always have some hope when the likes of Belgium, Holland or France are the countries involved, where with odd exceptions (PSG/Monaco) wages are lower than over here.

This morning there are rumours in various media that Newcastle have made a move to sign Willian, who is believed to be lined up for Liverpool.

This is Willian who played for Anzhi against Newcastle and who cost the Russian club around £30m in January, with the player no doubt on astronomical wages to match that fee. Especially to play for a club where it is too dangerous to even live there!

So put your hand up if you think there is any truth in Newcastle seriously trying to sign this player?
