‘He has the X factor’ – Most Newcastle fans agree on potential summer incoming

The Newcastle fans in the Transfer Tavern have been calling for their club to sign Kenedy from Chelsea for a while now, and according to The Northern Echo the Magpies can have their man this summer, albeit for a hefty price of £20 million.

Newcastle have a serious decision to make as if they don’t opt to buy Kenedy outright this summer as if they choose to loan the Brazilian he could cost them up to £30 million next summer when if they decide to sign him now they can shave a third of that off and pick him up for £20 million. The issue for Mike Ashley is that he doesn’t have that sort of money readily available to pump into the Chelsea winger.

If the deal does go through it will be much down to the fact that the club are looking to offload both Matt Ritchie and Aleksandar Mitrovic this summer for fees of £15 and £20 million. This money would comfortably cover what’s needed for Kenedy and would even go towards signing a replacement striker for Mitrovic too. However, the fans aren’t thinking about money one bit and they just want to see the Brazilian back at St James Park.

Whilst the money involved is big, the Newcastle fans in the Tavern are in no doubt that they need to sign Kenedy whatever the cost after his brilliance out on-loan.
