Another Miguel Almiron update has now appeared in the media on Wednesday.

Not normally in the usual top list of offenders when it comes to transfer speculation, this one is from the Guardian.

The newspaper’s Ed Aarons (Deputy News Editor) says that his information is that Newcastle United have agreed personal terms with Miguel Almiron.

The only stumbling block remaining, according to The Guardian, is the small matter of the transfer fee.

A transfer fee/offer that would need to be at least £24m according to the Atlanta United President.

That figure being 50% more than Newcastle’s 14 year old club record transfer and twice as much as Rafa Benitez has been allowed to pay for any individual in his three years at St James Park.

As for personal terms, only yesterday somebody ‘leaked’ the alleged news that Miguel Almiron was looking for over £100,000 per week in wages before he’d agree to join Newcastle United.

That story was blatantly put out by Mike Ashley’s people as their PR campaign/spin picks up serious pace as the NUFC owner comes under increasing criticism for the handling of pretty much everything at Newcastle United, in particular his treatment of Rafa Benitez and lack of ambition in the transfer market.

After months of speculation and claims of it being set to happen, difficult to imagine how anybody thinks Newcastle will be buying Miguel Almiron, or anybody else of substance, this month.

The Mag – Yesterday (Tuesday 8 January 2019):

Miguel Almiron has for some time being claimed to be the top target for Rafa Benitez in this current transfer window.

With Newcastle United desperate for goals and creativity, the Paraguayan playmaker/number 10 has been constantly linked to Newcastle United.

Only rock bottom Huddersfield have scored less than NUFC’s pitiful 15 Premier League goals in 21 matches.

If any deal for Miguel Almiron was going to happen, most Newcastle fans assumed it would happen at the very start of January, especially as the claimed interest is now months old.

This is especially the case with Newcastle deep in relegation trouble and needing any new signings in as soon as possible to give them the maximum chance of playing enough games to positively help the situation.

With not a single player bought in January 2017 or January 2018 and Rafa Benitez limited to no more than £10m on any buy since promotion, buying Miguel Almiron sounded even more like fantasy.

Only for the Atlanta United President to then respond to claims that a loan deal with eventual £15m fee to be paid by Newcastle had been agreed, by stating the MLS club was looking for at least £24m for their star player.

Tuesday has now seen BT Sport quoting the Press Association, who say their information is that there are two more big ‘stumbling blacks’.

These being the fees that would be payable to agents, as well as Miguel Almiron himself allegedly asking for over £100,000 per week in wages.

The report adds that ‘sources’ on Tyneside have described the agent/player demands as ‘astronomical’.

I’m guessing that the vast majority of Newcastle fans will instantly assume that this story has come from Mike Ashley’s people.

Yet another PR move to try and make the failure to buy the quality of signings Newcastle need, down to greedy players rather than a refusal of Mike Ashley to back his manager.

Miguel Almiron turns 25 years old in February, is in his prime, is a very exciting player who as scored and made goals for fun in the MLS to be arguably the hottest property in their league, so with the transfer market these days, surely we all knew the finances of any deal would be more than for any player Newcastle currently have.

Jonjo Shelvey cost £13m three years ago and as been regularly and widely reported to be Newcastle’s top wage earner on £80,000 per week.

So if Newcastle were going to buy Almiron for £24m or more, it doesn’t take a genius to work out that his wages would be in line with that, a lot higher than Shelvey.

When the likes of Fulham, Bournemouth and others are spending £25m on single players, does anybody really think they will be on the same money as the bargain basement signings Rafa has been forced to make, such as £5m Joselu, £4m Manquillo and £6m Atsu???

It is funny how Mike Ashley is able to sell players such as Carroll, Cabaye, Wijnaldum, Sissoko and Mitrovic for £20m-£35m and yet it suddenly becomes ‘astronomical’ money when it comes to the idea of Newcastle paying that kind of money and commensurate wages for anybody.



  • Kneebotherm8

    😂😂😂…..what a load of rubbish…….what a load of rubbish…..

    • Kenny

      The salary may be correct but as for the Fat oaf paying £20m is another matter.

      • Kneebotherm8

        They’ve been doing the deal for a couple of months now,supposedly ……..unbelievable that two small details like the transfer fee and the players wages wouldn’t have been sorted by now………someone’s tekkin the pss again..

        • Kenny

          I don`t believe they will pay anywhere near the asking price
          it`s the usual bull schitt

  • Kenny

    His current salary is $2,3 million. his club are asking for 24 million in Dollars not pounds or euro`s.
    that is from pro soccer USA which i presume knows more then the papers in the UK

  • Leicester Mag

    If true Fenwicks window is soon going to get cluttered

    • KennyS

      Pity Sports Direct window wasn’t covered in sales posters we could use that one as well.

      • Leicester Mag

        I can also think how in this context I could upcycle the posters!

  • Alex

    over —-> __________

    Nope.

  • Mr_Kinnear

    My source close to the deal says that normally a fee is agreed before permissions is given to discuss personal terms. Although on the occasion they decided to forego this as Ashley is such a nice chap. It’s a very good source😆

    • Wezza

      You hit the nail on the head there!
      Debunked!

    • Leazes.

      Was a bit odd wasn’t it….?

  • Mxpx

    The deal Mike will offer is “give me almiron and I’ll sell your shirts in sports direct…. I’ll even give you 10% of the profit”

    • Weyhhadaway

      that is complete and utter fiction, you should be ashamed of yourself, Ashley would never give more than 4% of the profit. See Rangers.

  • andrew baron

    I heard we are supposed to be in for the Turkish Messi. Byker Beckanbauer would more be our style.

    • Weyhhadaway

      The Gateshead Gazza, oh we already had him. Don’t forget Bas Dost and that bloke who crawls around like a lion.

      • Wor Lass

        The Ponteland Panther!

    • X,WHY,Y MAN.

      Or “The Walker Weah.”

  • Weyhhadaway

    So the fee is 24M in Dollars? So 19.2M quid, still not gonna happen, but I hope I am wrong.

    • Martin Rooney

      Why do you want him because he’s good or because hes a new record signing?

      • Kneebotherm8

        It would seem he’s better than what we’ve got………..hard to believe that like with the quality in our squad……

      • Mark Bertram

        He’s good. I live in Atlanta and watch him play every week.
        He is ridiculously fast and great on the ball.
        I was surprised he wasn’t picked up by a European team last January.
        Put him in central midfield to feed the front line and he will make an immediate difference.
        As an AU fan I hate to see him go, but he belongs in Europe.

        • Martin Rooney

          I may be wrong but despite being entertained by it and I had the pleasure of watching Orlando in April last year and watching live the MLS game is significantly slower meaning the likes of almiron and Rooney look fast but aren’t.

          With him not featuring in the list of 100 fastest players I doubt he’d have the same affect he has here as he does there.
          My point is not yo disregard but to be more cautious with our limited budget.

          • Mark Bertram

            You’re wrong. The dude is crazy fast. In a game last season he made several long runs that clocked him, from a roughly standing start, running 40yards in around 4.2-4.4 seconds.
            He is fast in any league.

          • Martin Rooney

            Maybe have a look again at his info on the major league soccer news website
            Player analysis —miguel almiron

          • Mark Bertram

            Read it, doesn’t mention anything about speed.
            It does mention he uses his acceleration to his advantage.
            He outruns most of MLS WITH the ball.
            He is easily the fastest guy in mls.
            Find an Atlanta home game on the web, sit down with a stop watch. The field is marked in stripes.
            Clock him starting to full speed. You’ll be blown away.
            And I looked at your list of 100 fastest players. They obviously don’t include MLS, or anyone outside of Europe for that matter.

          • Martin Rooney

            I’m sure having read the player analysis many here in Newcastle will be a little less excited. It must be a different list as there are not on litres from across the globe on the one I looked at.

            I didn’t mean to offend you I just think given the cash we have he is a gamble and unproven at a higher standard and in be the unique tough British type of football.
            Add to that Rafa’s way of integrating new players and his be likely impact in this relegation threatening season I don’t think it’s worth it

          • Mark Bertram

            Not offended, just saying I have been a NUFC fan since the early 90s, and I have been to every Atlanta United home game they have ever played.
            Almiron is the guy you need.
            He will make the team instantly better.
            I have zero concerns about his ability to play at the EPL level.
            He is so far above the level of MLS it’s almost not fair for him to be playing here.
            You’ll see. He’ll either end up at Newcastle, or somewhere else in Europe. I have no doubts he’ll crush it.

      • Weyhhadaway

        I haven’t seen him play. So , like everyone else I am taking the word of the experts. While seeing the irony that we won’t be buying anyone good or bad

  • Themoscow72

    Never heard of him but if we sign him that will shut up a few on here. Looked on Wikipedia to find where he plays and guess what. Says he is a midfielder who plays for Newcastle United in the English Premier league. They are on the ball.

    • Kenny

      We may have to flog Perez to cover the £20m
      😂😂😂😂😂

      • Glockas

        20 million? We’ll be beating them off with a shittystick.

      • Mark Davies

        Couldnt we sweeten the deal by giving them Perez, the hoss, Hayden and Manquillo plus the £20m haha

        • Peaky

          Colback is still ours isn’t he…??? Chuck him in with your four and it’s a done deal…

          • Colback would ravage the MLS :D

          • Peaky

            He’d probably be up to his old tricks….unnecessary mistimed tackles….on the cheerleadears….

          • Mark Davies

            Oh aye, forgot about that little ginger gem. Hang on what about Saivet as well….

        • Kneebotherm8

          They’d want £25m to take that lot of our hands……

      • Themoscow72

        Then at least we would make a profit.

      • KennyS

        It’s a f##k#n shame that but I second that and third and fourth the others.

      • Kneebotherm8

        Could end up playing for Monkseaton United……

      • Perez would actually cost 15m+ in today’s market. He is a really decent player, and if he wasn’t turned into a number 10 out of lack of depth he could still be one of our best strikers.

      • porciestreet

        Daaaaamn…!
        How f.k.n sad would that be…?

    • Wezza

      Anyone can edit that did you? I hear he is Perez’ replacement. :)

    • Kev Newcastle England

      Fcu king NUGGET

  • X,WHY,Y MAN.

    Well if there is any truth in us signing him on then the stories about a 100 grand a week have to be absolute rubbish because Fat Boy will only go as high as 20 grand a week, Or something two bob like that.
    I’ll stand corrected if this happens but until then still sceptical where Fatty Arbuckle is concerned !

  • Glockas

    One for the future. Although we need signings (desperately) for the now.

    • Anita kick up the Hoop

      The same future as Murphy?

      • Glockas

        Murphy was a strange signing.

        • Wezza

          I agree but knowing this regime the hope was 12M would turn into a sale of 20M plus.

          • That was only if he comes good, Rafa doesn’t pick him because apart from a flash of decent quality – doesn’t track back, gets muscled out of the ball easily, can’t win headers, rarely beats his man, poor shooting outside the box.

        • He was never Rafa’s first choice, the board sanctioned him instead of someone that could have been useful, because he fit the profit profile!

    • He’s experienced now, if he doesn’t get his legs broken in the first few weeks might be a real asset but I fear he will get injured pretty quick in the Prem.

      • Billmag

        Why would you think that, Roy Keane’s retired now.

  • Martin Rooney

    Ffs spending 24m on a player from equivalent of div 1 or championship.
    He will have no impact on our team this year as he acclimatises with the premier league.

    • MadMag83

      Calm down, it won’t happen anyway.

    • Ram Kishore

      U never know.
      Only time will answer.
      A year ago a player from Czech league, supposedly signed in 2017 as a second choice for Sparta ended up being our first choice goalkeeper.

      He may come good, he may take time or he may not be able to do ever. All are a big IF.

      • GK are a different matter. Almiron is just too lightweight for the Premier League. He will get bullied for sure. Remember Thauvin and the other french winger with McClown? They couldn’t get a sniff of the ball because 3/4 of Prem “no problem, play on says the Reff” are fouls and some even bookings in Spain, Portugal and France where officials actually protect footballers from injuries.
        Ask Ben Arfa.

        • Kneebotherm8

          He canna be any worse than lightweight Perez…..

        • Ram Kishore

          There have been examples of players coming from different leagues and adapting to PL and players who haven’t.
          Not all players who come from abroad have failed to adapt.
          I’m just saying we will never know.
          I can quote many success and many failure.
          We never know until he plays .
          It’s all 50/50 probability Stephen, u must know that by now.

          And I absolutely agree with you too.
          Bn Arfa did adapt, Cazorla did adapt, Mata did, there are many who didn’t. Just being fair
          😀

          • Martin Rooney

            Yes but none of those were huge investments expected to be the star player.

          • Ram Kishore

            U mean Cazorla and HBA?

          • Martin Rooney

            Yes I mean both Carzola was a high price but did not arrive at Arsenal as the number 1 value or star in the team he was of team if better players
            We have no 24m players and someone if that price would/should be stand out.
            It would just be our luck to get another HBA Who had all the talent but didn’t come use it.

        • We’ll support you evermore

          I disagree mate. Look at David Brooks for Bournemouth he’s the same build as almiron and he’s excelling in his first season in the prem. Let go by man city as a young’n for being lightweight, sheff U seen something in him and made him.

        • Mark Bertram

          As an AU fan who watches Almiron every week, he’ll be fine in the EPL. He is one of the most fouled players in MLS which is a physical league. He has been fine.
          Any disadvantage in his size is more than made up for by his ridiculous speed.
          I would love to see him at Newcastle.
          And you’re right, until he gets there you just never know.
          But if Almiron stays in MLS and has another season like his last two, the price for him is only going to go up from where it currently is.
          He has succeeded at every level he has played at, no reason to think EPL would be any different.

          • That’s good to hear from someone who watches that league regularly. Then 25M is worth it and Ashley should pay.

          • Mark Bertram

            Not to mention, Atlanta United’s President, and the guy setting the price for Almiron, is the former Director of Football Administration for Tottenham.
            He knows what Almiron is worth in terms of the EPL.

    • Mark Bertram

      As an Atlanta fan who watches Miggy play every week, he’ll do just fine in the EPL. He is lightning fast even with the ball. He runs rings around MLS and probably should have been in Europe last season.
      As far as physicality, he was the 11th most fouled player in the league and he did just fine.
      I’m not sure that he is worth as much as AU is asking, but he would definitely make an impact right out of the gate.

      • Martin Rooney

        Wayne Rooney has been a shining light in the mls, single handedly transforming a rock bottom side.
        He was so slow in the PL .a year earlier that he became a liability to everton.
        He can not be a judged at PL or European standard having not played hre. However his cohort Martinez can be and his abilities tear the MLS apart whilst barely registered as a breeze w hi ikst in Europe.
        He’s not worth a ride at this price £10m tops with add one for success but not 24m

        • Mark Bertram

          Rooney had a good season, but his team’s success was due to a variety of factors.
          The biggest is probably that they played the first half of the season on the road while their stadium was being built, then the second half at home. The crapped out on the road and did well at home, which took them from 10th to 6th and just squeaked them into the playoffs where they immediately lost.
          Martinez didn’t do well at Torino because they sat him more than he played, and they played him on the wing as a support player when he did play.
          AU put him up front and put the whole team behind him.
          If a Euro team did that, he would do well there as well.
          Almiron totally ran rings around MLS the last 2 years. I am really surprised he didn’t go to the EPL last January.
          There is no chance AU takes only 10mill for him. At that price they will just keep him.
          Not sure he is worth the 23mill pounds AU are asking, but he is worth way more than 10.

          • Billmag

            You seem to know your stuff mate that’s more that can be said about the person you are replying to. Cheers.

          • Mark Bertram

            I live in Atlanta, I have Atlanta United season tickets.
            During the season I watch at least 7 or 8 MLS matches a week.
            I have also been a Newcastle fan since they started broadcasting the EPL in the US, which was in the early/mid 90s.
            When it comes to Atlanta United, I know pretty much all there is to know.
            Almiron would be GREAT for Newcastle. He could literally be the one piece that helps them rise above relegation this season.
            It drives me nuts that this deal wasn’t done last month so he could be there Jan 1.
            As things are going now, his agent has said there are 3 EPL teams, a La Liga team (Betis), a Bundesliga team, and a Serie A team interested.
            Someone is going to take the leap and sign him because if he stays in MLS and has another season like the last 2, his price is only going to go up.

          • Billmag

            Good man, It’s hard work for all of us following our beloved team with an awful owner but owners come and go but fan’s stay forever, watch this space but don’t hold your breath that the owner will sanction this transfer. Good luck to Atlanta in the future.

          • Martin Rooney

            Thought he had to be sold, as they already have his replacement and the wage cap was passed?
            Given the rates for a ready made pl player never mind already made Rafa’s nufc player then he is not worth signing at that quoted price as such as unknown.

            Too risky

          • Mark Bertram

            The club has not officially signed Pity Martinez yet, his replacement.
            Pretty sure that deal is contingent on selling Almiron.
            Almiron has won championships everywhere he’s played. He is head and shoulders above the rest of MLS.
            I’d say Almiron joining Newcastle is more of a risk for Almiron than Newcastle.
            He has Betis wanting him as well. They are sitting 6th fighting at the top, not 2 points above relegation.
            If Newcastle is smart they’d grab him with both hands no matter the cost.

          • Mark Bertram

            The other thing you need to remember is that the guy assigning the price for Almiron is the former director of football administration for Tottenham.
            He is familiar with the EPL and the value of players.

          • Martin Rooney

            So as champions, full houses every week, and plenty of revenue why are they not doing everything they can to keep this superstar player?

          • Mark Bertram

            MLS Salary rules are insanely restrictive. AU’s wage bill in 2018 was $11.3m.
            The other reason is that when Almiron joined AU he did so with the promise that the team would help him get to Europe.
            I’d love for him to stay, but he really belongs in Europe.
            AU is looking to be the Ajax of MLS. Get young players, develop them, sell them on. That’s why they hired de Boer as coach.
            Each MLS team is only allowed three high salary players. High salary is relative here. Highest paid guy in the league makes $7m.
            AU has already hired Almiron’s replacement. Pity Martinez who was the South American player of the year.
            AU can’t keep both Almiron and Pity since they already have two other hi end players in Barco and Josef Martinez.
            Trust me, AU would be thrilled to keep Almiron for a few more years, but it would be holding him back.

          • Martin Rooney

            So he has signed now? And they gave to sell ? That puts them in a pretty weak bargaining position if only nufc and betis are in for him.

          • Mark Bertram

            The player has said he is going to Atlanta and it’s assumed a deal is in place, but most are assuming it’s conditional on Almiron being sold.
            If he doesn’t get sold, the deal is probably voided.
            But he will get sold. Whether to NUFC or someone else. He is just too good for MLS.
            Supposedly Arsenal are creeping back into the picture. They were pursuing him hard through 2018.

          • Martin Rooney

            Let’s wait and see then.
            How do you push hard then drop out of the picture?
            Have they discovered something we haven’t?

          • Mark Bertram

            Arsenal and AC milan were after him hard last January but we wouldn’t sell.
            Arsenal started showing interest again last month after Almiron spent another season lighting up the league again.

  • Paul Patterson

    Ok, what’s the betting this falls through?

    • KennyS

      All betting has been cancelled!!

  • Peaky

    We could send The Hoss out on loan…..to Frankie Dettori….🤣

    • In all fairness, Hoss might be a decent bottom 3-4 La Liga forward or Championship. Problem is, it will be a miracle to get him off the books now, same with Murphy probably.

      • Kneebotherm8

        A glue factory is the best bet for getting Hoss off the books.

      • 1957

        If he was offered out to Spanish clubs, I doubt any team in La Liga would take him, his record at that level is as bad as his EPL one. The Second division teams might be interested but it would take a miracle they wouldn’t go close to half his present salary. He’s with us until the end of his contract, or longer if Benitez stays.

  • KennyS

    Why have you added that first bit of fake news onto another post which was delivered yesterday?

  • Anita kick up the Hoop

    Any newspaper that employs Owen Jones has to boast less credibility than Dianne Abbott on countdown

    • 1957

      Can anyone really have less credibility than Abbott !!!

      • Carl Marks

        Russ Abbott?

  • justchampion

    No idea if he is good enough so won’t comment. If we did buy him we would still be cost neutral on transfers based on the profit we made in the summer. However it doesn’t sound like coincidence that the wages were leaked and then 2 days later we ‘agree’ to them. ‘Unfortunately the deal fell through because Atlanta wanted an unreasonable fee for him’. A source close to the source of a source said.

    • Leazes.

      …..from the ‘orses mouth’.

  • Leazes.

    If true then they will have coughed up a record fee and the biggest wage since Owen/Shearer for an untried midfielder…. bye bye Kenedy and Shelvey.

    …. maybe to take a bit of the sting away from the diminishing credibility and inactivity of the regime….not that they are bothered about reputation.

    There’s plenty of time for last minute hitches, work permits, other clubs interest, not to mention the chronicle favorites of Agents demands, passport irregularities, unforeseen problems or anything else they can think of to take it to the last hurdle on February the 1st….

    ……before it collapses like Devon Loch in the home straight……

    Watch!

    • Wezza

      “The player didn’t want to come”

      I want to see Atlanta chairman debunk this PR story LOL.

      • Leazes.

        I don’t know where the Guardian got their story from because its an online journo who speculates over other media gossip sitting at a desk in Manchester….. probably from the chronicle a week earlier…. and beefed it up a bit.

        • Wezza

          KBA probably chose a new media fool target this time, if it were from the Times, it would put people right off before reading!

          • Leazes.

            He can count on Douglas and Ryder……

            …… but I guess Bird, Jensen and Starforth are waiting for someone else to make a bloody fool of themselves first.

  • Wezza

    “wages are now agreed with Miguel Almiron”
    “Newcastle (FCB) ‘only’ need to agree the transfer fee”

    200,000 a week may be agreed but the transfer fee won’t.

    • Kneebotherm8

      Our lot will find some way to scupper the deal…….assuming there ever was a deal on the cards…..

  • Lord

    The club should not break our transfer record and risk the takeover falling through. We should rely on a temporary solution, maybe a free loan for a player coming out of injury or an aging player on the fringes of another PL squad.

      I wonder if Ashley has asked Kenyon if he wants him? ;)

  • MadMag83

    All transfer news is fake news until it appears on the NUFC website.

  • Missing an “h” in that “wit” in the title. Proper journalism.

  • tom

    Scoured the gaurdian and cannot find this…

    • Kenny

      Google it, it`s online

  • Kenny

    Anybody know if there is any other clubs in for this guy ?

    • Peaky

      West bloody Ham probably if we are…!!!

      • Kenny

        Could be a one Hoss race.
        😂😂😂

        • Peaky

          The Hoss would lose in a one hoss race…😂🤣

    • Mark Bertram

      Last January AC Milan and Arsenal were after him.
      Right now it’s only Newcastle and Betis as far as I know.
      As an AU fan I can tell you that they need to get him off the books.
      They have already signed his replacement and due to MLS salary rules someone has to go.
      It is assumed Almiron will be in Europe by the end of the transfer window.

      • Leazes.

        Nice bit of insight…. we’ll see.

    • Tino o

      Hes going there if there is

  • Carl Marks

    Surely not!
    Professional footballer agrees to be paid,fifteen pence,a Curlywurly,two vintage Tudor Crisps packets and a copy of this month’s ‘Fiesta’?
    Have you notified the Guinness Book Of Firsts??

  • Tino o

    Can’t wait to see him play behind Andy Carrol and van dost and with Townsend Ritchie either side happy days 😂

    • Carl Marks

      We stand more chance of signing Carol Andrew!!

  • HarryHype59

    Yet another day of nothing in the Mag!

    • Carl Marks

      like yesterday and tomorrow and the day after that until 1st February,when a statement prepared eleven years ago will be released
      “It’s all ——–‘s fault not mine”
      (this will be typed)
      and ‘Rafa’ will have been written in the space(using a SD biro of course)

  • robbersdog

    It must’ve been Mike’s offer of a maxi-pack of Sports Direct socks that clinched the deal with Almiron.

    • Mike Ashley

      No actually it was the super sized sports direct mug. I also threw in a pair of Lonsdale trainers

      • Carl Marks

        They’re effing huge and thick – just like Ashley
        They’re like sinkholes with a handle attached

        tacky owner
        tacky stock

    • Carl Marks

      and a guaranteed lack of winners medals or silverware.
      Plus a tour around his Victorian Workhouse in Derbyshire,
      “Don”t worry Miguel,I’ve arranged it,so no terrified employees are forced to give birth in the bogs while you’re here”

  • Wor Lass

    “That figure being 50% more than Newcastle’s 14 year old club record transfer …” Have I got it wrong? I thought we paid £16.8 mill for that little waster.

  • Steven05

    Just to put a different spin on it:

    If all you ever buy is 10p mix-ups and Cadbury’s Chomps, the time comes/came when you have to spend more than 10p

    The market has moved on – every other club has the money. This club has the money. The Fat Cancer could easily pay for this player without even noticing

    But, well, you all know how this will go.,,

    • Carl Marks

      Have they stopped selling Penny Chews like?
      That’s more Ashley’s price range

  • Leicester Mag

    We will know the truth when Moscow bumps into him in the lift in the Gateshead Hilton

    • Carl Marks

      or Paris Hilton

  • Nart

    Almiron’s agent Daniel Campos has apparently confirmed today that personal terms have been agreed but that there is still no agreement with Atlanta United over the fee

  • Allan

    Its yet more BULLSHIT, Almiron NEVER going to happen. After all RAFA’S only been given a bag with beans in it to spend.
    AND Only after he climbs to the top of the beanstalk and the Ogre ( ASHLEY) Is REMOVED.

  • csh

    Ah someone’s been playing Football Manager and got confused with reality.

  • Andy james

    BULLSHIT.

  • Albert Stubbins

  • Rob Brown

    Yes, and I heard that Hazard is signing for us, we just have to agree personal terms and a transfer fee.

    Kenyons offer has been accepted, he just has to add another 75 million.

    What is unbelievable about all this is that you waste time writing about it. That and you believe Ashley cares enough about what the fans think to even bother to put up a smokescreen.

    He doesn’t care what we think about selling the club. He doesnt care what we think about transfers. And he’s got more to do than waste time coming up with stories.
    I can only assume you voted for Brexit.

  • Carl Marks

    It would be more believable,if it said his Avon Agent
