The Newcastle United fans who are gathered at the bar in The Football Transfer Tavern this evening are astounded by reports suggesting that one of their players could be making a huge move away from Tyneside soon.
According to a report in The Telegraph, Moussa Sissoko could be on his way way to La Liga giants Real Madrid.
The Spanish side will make a bid for the French international as soon as they have confirmation that Paul Pogba has turned a move to the Bernabeau down in favour of a record breaking return to Old Trafford.
The Galacticos believe that a bid of around £30m should be enough to persuade The Magpies to do business with them for a player who has been anything but consistent during his three-and-a-half year spell at St. James’ Park.
It is thought that the Champions League winning side are prepared to take a gamble on the midfielder following impressive form for his country at EURO 2016 this summer, and are hopeful of concluding a deal within a couple of weeks.
Newcastle fans, we want to hear from you! We’re all a bit shocked here in the bar, did you see this coming?! Let us know in the comments below…
