Newcastle United fans here in the Tavern are praying that their side can secure a European spot next season, as they’ll be looking to bring in a number of players this summer.
The Magpies struggled to grind out positive results this season as they flirted with the possibility of relegation, so Rafa Benitez will be desperate to avoid a repeat next season. Although, it looks as if Newcastle are set to offload a striker this summer, as according to the Chronicle Live, Benitez is looking to offload Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Indeed, it’s understood that Fulham want to sign the Serbian this summer after winning promotion to the Premier League.
And, Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez is looking to offload Mitrovic and Newcastle are expected to demand between £15m-£20m for the forward’s services.
The striker was one of the standout performers in the Championship during the second half of the season, as he helped fire Fulham to the Premier League by scoring 12 goals.
Many of our local northerners are extremely worried about the club’s current striker situation, as they thought that Benitez might have included Mitrovic in his plans for next season after witnessing his prolific campaign. So, it looks as if supporters will have to say goodbye to the Serbian, as Benitez is ready to offload the Newcastle United star.
