Newcastle United have done extremely well to win promotion from the Sky Bet Championship at the first time of asking and their instant return to the Premier League has naturally delighted the Magpies supporters here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
The loyal supporters will be hoping that their team can consolidate a place in the top flight next season and with Spaniard Rafael Benitez at the helm there is no reason whatsoever why they cannot have a decent campaign.
Naturally the club will need to ensure that they recruit the right sort of players during the summer months and one area that will certainly need looking at is the right-back slot, with Vurnon Anita operating on the right-hand side of the back four during the majority of the campaign.
It is likely that the Magpies will aim high with their transfer targets and one man who could fill the void at the back is Manchester City outcast Pablo Zabaleta, who is way down the pecking order at the Etihad Stadium.
The Argentinean has only played 18 games for the Citizens during the current campaign, with a lot of his game time coming from the bench and given that he isn’t getting any younger the 32-year-old could leave the club in quest of more minutes on the pitch.
A couple of Newcastle fans are stood by the pool tables here in the Tavern and they are genuinely excited with the thought that Zabaleta may consider the Magpies as his next club, stating that his Premier League expertise could be a massive attribute for the club next season.
Newcastle United fans, would you welcome this Manchester City man to the club? Let us know in the comments below!!!
