Rangers fans have been fearing for a while what the summer may bring fr Afrddo Morelos. The fan base will be split on this one, as they attempt to weigh up the positive impact of the Colombian’s goals against the negatives of the points his discipline has cost them. Either way, he’s being linked away as Newcastle United are interested in the hitman.
The t150 mile trip from Glasgow down to Newcastle be one that Morelos finds himself making this summer, but it would be more than just a move Southwest, as it would take him from the Scottish Premier League to the English Premier League, the most watched league in the world where he could really make or break his career. Nothing yet, though is set in stone.
The links for this move have come from the often inaccurate Don Balon, however, as The Daily Record has reiterated that the Magpies want Morelos it has made the story more believable, and as we all know in football absolutely anything can happen, including this. It could be a switch, though, that relies on Newcastle being taken over by Sheikh Khaled, the UAE royal who wants to purchase the club.
Morelos would certainly be missed for his goals, but with five red cards this season, Steven Gerrard should be happy to offload him. If the fee being reported is correct then it will see the Glasgow club become £20 million richer, and with the kind of money it wouldn’t take long for Stevie G and the Gers to get over the Colombian’s exit and get to rebuilding, so they should certainly move him on if the rumours prove true.
