Some Newcastle United fans have hailed a transfer link to Pedro after a report from ChronicleLive suggested that the Chelsea man is thought to have been put to the Tyneside club as a potential transfer.
At the age of 32, he is the type of player that Mike Ashley would have avoided signing, but with wage demands of top stars about to drop and new funds set to arrive for the Magpies, a player of his stature could come into the reckoning, as per the article.
If the takeover goes through, a new era could see some high-profile out-of-contract players arrive on the scene at St James’ Park, and Pedro was a name that was mentioned, as he has previously told La Cadena SER (via Daily Mirror) that he will be terminating his contract at Stamford Bridge.
One member of the Toon faithful was keen to point out that Pedro is a ‘proven winner’ on Twitter, and indeed the Spaniard has won a staggering 29 major trophies in his footballing career, according to Transfermarkt.
These NUFC supporters hailed the transfer link:
