Italian Director Of Football In Talks For Newcastle Defender According To Reports

10 years ago

The weekly reports of Italian clubs after a Newcastle defender have at least had a minor change. Instead of it being Davide Santon in the frame, just for a change it is Mathieu Debuchy.

The Rome edition of Corriere della Sera states that Roma’s Director of Football, Walter Sabatini, is already in discussions to take Debuchy to Italy in the summer.

Debuchy played under Rudi Garcia when at Lille and the French Coach is now the main man at the club in Rome.

How many pinches of salt you can take this latest transfer story with is anybody’s guess.

However, there seems to be a bit of a pattern as to what kind of clubs Newcastle’s players are linked with.

The defenders (including Tim Krul) almost exclusively get linked with moves abroad – with France and Italy the most popular links, but midfielders/strikers such as Tiote, Ben Arfa and Remy usually find themselves linked with Premier League clubs, as was Demba Ba previously.
