The Newcastle fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling very comfortable with their current spot in the Premier League. Despite the problems regarding the ownership of the club, on the field things are looking very good – and Rafael Benitez is doing a good job as boss.
However, as with every year, the tasks keep on coming for the Magpies, and staying in the Premier League will be another challenge next term.
They need to use this summer, then, to improve the quality on display at St James’ Park, and Benitez would be wise to move quickly in the market.
Newcastle’s finances have been a big topic of debate for a while now, with Mike Ashley’s pursestrings seemingly pulled more tightly every year. Looking at free agents, then, might be a good way for the Newcastle manager to beat the crunch, and one such example is Yaya Toure.
The Ivorian is set to leave Man City this summer when his contract ends, and that will leave him without a club. A move to Newcastle hasn’t been suggested, but with the power, ability and experience that he has, he could be a decent fit.
Well, the Newcastle faithful at least seem to think so, judging by a recent poll. We recently asked fans whether they’d like to see Toure at St James’ Park, and 64% of fans responded saying they would.
Clearly, then, a large portion of the Newcastle fan base would like to see him at the club, and it’s easy to see why. They don’t have anyone like him, and his knowledge and experience that he has gained by playing at the highest level for so long would be invaluable.
Whether they move for him remains to be seen, but it will certainly be interesting to see where he does end up.
