Newcastle United will be desperate to challenge for a European spot this season, but this may be out of reach after witnessing their transfer window efforts.
Indeed, the Magpies managed to bring players in last summer but they’ll feel that they could of done more to prepare for the Premier League campaign. And, it appears as if they suffered transfer heartbreak on deadline day, as according to the Chronicle Live, Newcastle hit a brick wall in their attempts to sign Ragnar Klavan and Erik Pieters.
It’s believed that Newcastle United failed to secure the services of Ragnar Klavan and Erik Pieters on deadline day as potential deals reportedly hit a brick wall.
Although, this wasn’t the only disappointment as the Magpies also failed in their attempts to sign Federico Fernandez and Stanley N’Soki from Paris Saint-Germain due to the asking price.
So, it’s fair to say that Mike Ashley is still not stumping up the cash for the Magpies, which has left Rafa Benitez very frustrated to say the least.
Indeed, the Magpies will have been looking to strengthen massively over the course of the summer transfer window. But, Mike Ashley’s unwillingness to spend has caused problems for the club once again, as Rafa Benitez is left seething after the disasters of deadline day.
The Spaniard may already be looking for a potential exit route at St James’ Park after another disappointing transfer window, which would leave the Tyneside club in a heap of trouble.
