Newcastle United holding firm on price for coveted star, Euro giants keen on move

JanmaatNewcastle fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are happy to see that their club are being pushovers as they are set for a mass exodus this summer.

According to The Sun, Mike Ashley and the board at Newcastle are demanding £10 million for Daryl Janmaat.

This puts the Geordies and the defender in a tough situation because Juventus are interested in buying the player, but they are only willing to pay £5 million for his services.

With the Serie A champions only willing to pay half, it is reported the Magpies would be willing to settle at £7 million.

The difficulty is that the Bianconeri don’t see Janmaat as a key signing and wouldn’t be too fussed if they can’t agree a deal.

Whilst Newcastle are looking to get as much money for their in-demand players, but don’t want to put off potential buyers by setting their asking prices too high.

Juve intend to purchase Janmaat as a back up and competition for Stephan Lichtsteiner.

Our resident Newcastle fans enjoying a beverage here in the Transfer Tavern think that Janmaat is a fantastic player, and say it would be sad to see the full-back depart in the summer,
