Newcastle fans take to Twitter as Almiron deal looks back on

A lot of Newcastle fans had themselves believing that their ongoing deal for Miguel Almiron was dead in the water. However, it seems that the Magpies bid of £16 million is the highest that has been lodged for the Paraguayan, although Atlanta United are holding out for £20 million, according to The Northern Echo.

Whilst the usual response from the Magpies would be to go to town on Mike Ashley for haggling over £4 million, a lot of them are slightly more understanding over the situation on this one. The 24-year-old is unproven in Europe, and whilst he looks like having a bright future, it’s a move that could out to be a sour one if Almiron comes in for a record fee and flops, despite his brilliance across the pond.

The Geordies expect to see Almiron be sold by Atlanta United this transfer window, and whilst they’re currently the highest bidders, the fans have been given fresh hopes of recruiting the playmaker. Whatever happens, the fans will just be desperate to see Rafa Benitez get his man, even if it does take them to the last day and sees them break their record transfer fee, that was set way back in 2006.

The Magpies are desperate to get Almiron over the line, but they don’t want to spend over the odds on an unproven player from America either.
